Reducing Anxiety and Pain with Laser Dentistry

It’s been decades since the concept of lasers entered mainstream society. You may remember Captain Kirk in the Star Trek TV series using his light beam to take down an opponent, but today lasers are not just fiction, they are real. Lasers are used in a variety of applications from targeting your speed by the local police to taking measurements and creating extraordinary light shows at a concert.

Did you know that lasers are also widely used in dentistry? Many dentists are turning to lasers to treat a variety of oral health issues and here is the reason why.

Precise and Accurate

Lasers are used by many health care and medical professionals because of their ability to target areas of concern with great accuracy. Over the past few decades, lasers have been used to help repair damage to your oral cavity. Your skilled dentist can use lasers to clean teeth, remove excess tartar or even perform a root planing. These special tools help your dentist locate decay beneath the surface of the tooth’s enamel and can target specific areas in preparation for a filling or another procedure. Simply put, lasers are extremely precise when it comes to using them for dental treatments.

Reduce Your Fear

You don’t need to be afraid of going to the dentist. Fear and anxiety about dental treatments can be substantially reduced when you know your dentist offers laser treatments. Lasers can be focused specifically to target the areas of concern without causing any damage to surrounding tissue. The results are less pain and in turn, you can relax during your dentist appointment. Rest assured, laser dental therapy is extremely safe and will provide you with several benefits over traditional methods. Your dentist uses the laser with skill and can control the strength of its power thereby precisely targeting the area for the exact amount of time required for maximum benefit.

Additional Benefits of Lasers

Traditional methods to repair your teeth or restore portions of your oral cavity can be replaced by the use of lasers. What are some of the benefits of laser dentistry?

• High affinity for certain tissues
• Minimally invasive
• Safe due to no rotating drills
• Comfortable with no vibration
• Reduces the need for anesthesia
• Less pain
• Decontaminating effect
• Shorter recovery time for treatments

Ask your dentist if laser therapy is an option for your upcoming dental treatment. Deciding to use this modern medical advancement will substantially reduce your anxiety and improve your smile!
