Laser dentistry produces a natural anesthetic effect when it works, meaning no additional anesthesia is needed. The laser dentist will not use anesthesia to fill cavities. In addition, anesthesia is generally not required for root canal treatments or periodontal disease when using a laser for two reasons. First, laser dentistry is less invasive.
Dentists don't have to alter healthy tissue or tooth structure, and bleeding is minimal. The laser removes tissue as needed and instantly cauterizes it, so the dentist doesn't have to sew the area. Laser dentistry is less invasive, so people can expect to recover in a fraction of the time compared to traditional treatments. Painless dentistry is truly possible with the revolutionary laser dental treatments offered by West County Dental.
Laser dentistry is a fast and effective method that uses heat and light to perform a wide variety of dental procedures. Hard tissue lasers are powerful enough to cut the dental structure, while soft tissue lasers are used for periodontal and other treatments. You may feel anxious about getting injections at the dentist and hope that laser dentistry will be the solution. If just the thought of having a scalpel near your mouth gives you shivers, then laser dentistry is your new best friend.
