Are you aware that high-intensity lasers are implemented in dental procedures ranging from cancer screening tests to tooth whitening? For over twenty years, lasers have found their way into a variety of dental treatments and are quickly becoming more and more popular. They are safe and effective and can cut the time down on treatments tremendously.

For a better understanding of the basics of laser dentistry, listed below are some of the principles concerning laser dentistry:

 

– If you need a tooth whitening treatment, specialized gels can be placed on your teeth and stimulated with laser dentistry to do their magic.
– If you need a dental filling, laser dentistry can be used to prepare a tooth by burning away harmful decay around the cavity to prepare the tooth for a successful filling.
– It is essential to clean your mouth before root canals to ensure the process can be done effectively. Lasers are extremely effective at reshaping gums and removing debris when needed.
– When a biopsy is required, lasers can be implemented to remove small amounts of tissue from within your mouth.
– To avoid needless tissue cutting, lasers can be used to burn away canker sores and lesions.
