What types of laser dental procedures are there?
When we refer to soft-tissue in the mouth, we’re usually referring to the gums. At Ratan and Singh Dental Studio, we offer a range of laser procedures to improve the health and appearance of the gums.
Our advanced laser technology makes it possible for us to offer a superior gum treatment experience. With laser technology, we can treat gum disease with pinpoint precision, cleaning and removing infected tissue. We can also perform cosmetic procedures, sculpting gum tissue to suit your aesthetic goals.
The teeth and bones in the mouth make up the hard tissue.
Laser dentistry is a phenomenal option for cosmetic and general dental procedures because they can easily breakdown hard tissue with pinpoint accuracy.
Due to the variations in settings, we can pinpoint and remove damage and decay. We can also easily sculpt the teeth and bones to reshape them. The laser provides a far more comfortable experience as there’s no noise; the procedures are much faster and relatively painless.
What are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?
We can attribute most dental anxiety to the dental drill and anaesthesia. The sound, pressure and heat of the drill can make a perfectly standard procedure traumatic for patients.
The long needle and pain associated with injecting the anaesthetic, as well as the prolonged numbing after the procedure, often prevents patients from seeking dental care in the first place.
By switching to laser dentistry, patients can experience these great benefits:
Eliminating, the sights, sounds and sensations of conventional dentistry offers you a much more comfortable dental experience and no more anxiety.
This high-energy light technology is vastly less invasive than traditional dentistry methods. It eliminates the use of drills and scalpels in many dental procedures, which also reduces the need for anaesthesia.
The extremely precise and highly concentrated laser beams remove damaged tissue while closing the wound and promoting blood clotting, so you don’t experience the pain, bleeding and swelling associated with dental procedures. There is also a decreased need for sutures with soft tissue lasers.
The highly advanced lasers also sterilise the area as they work so you have less chance of contracting a bacterial infection at the site.
