Laser Dentistry – A New Level of Care

“Laser” stands for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” Dental lasers use focused light energy to perform precise dental procedures with dramatic results. At Afton Dental, we offer both hard and soft tissue lasers. Hard tissue lasers are ideal for procedures such as cavity detection, preparing teeth for fillings, and relieving tooth sensitivity. Soft tissue lasers, on the other hand, perform treatments like gum reshaping, gum surgery, and improving muscle attachment. 

What Are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?

Dental lasers offer numerous benefits, including the following: 

  • Treatments with dental lasers are much more comfortable.
  • Many laser treatments do not require anesthesia or a dental drill.
  • Dental lasers provide faster recovery time than traditional dental treatments.
  • Lasers can eliminate bleeding during surgical procedures.
  • The exceptional precision of the lasers minimizes the risk of infection.
  • The cutting-edge dental laser technology helps improve treatment outcomes.
  • Laser dentistry helps provide an improved overall patient experience. 

Exploring the Applications of Dental Lasers

Dental lasers play a pivotal role in facilitating a range of dental procedures, providing a safe, gentle, and incredibly precise alternative to traditional dental treatments. They help provide a less invasive solution for soft tissue surgical procedures while reducing the need for anesthesia and minimizing pain, discomfort, bleeding, and healing time. 

Dental lasers can destroy bacteria, making them perfect for sterilizing root canals during root canal therapy without using a dental drill or intricate tools. They also help manage gum disease, reduce pain, treat canker or cold sores, expose impacted wisdom teeth, regenerate damaged nerves, perform biopsies, and more. 

Laser dentistry can help facilitate dental cleanings, enhancing your comfort and reducing swelling or pain after your appointment. Our dental lasers can also help perform a range of cosmetic and restorative procedures, including teeth whitening, dentures, dental implants, dental crowns, bridges, and dental veneers.
