Fear is a common feeling for most people while they wait in the dentist’s office. If the thought of that drill operating anywhere in your mouth makes you nervous, and you are unable to get your mind off those whirring noises, then maybe it’s time to investigate laser dentistry.
Traditional dentistry requires the use of a rotary tool that has many useful attachments. Among these are cleaning brushes, drills, and sanding heads. All of them require rough physical contact that can leave you nauseous and stressed out. Most of them also require water and suction to help clear out the by-products associated with each head.
Laser dentistry eliminates many of the common complaints of traditional dentistry. A laser device replaces the rotary tool and can be used for everything from surgery to tooth bleaching. The only addition to the procedure is the requirement of protective glasses to shield the eyes from the laser beam.
The time span of a laser treatment can vary depending on the usage. Some treatments with the laser may only last a few moments, while others could last minutes. When it comes to surgery, laser dentistry offers several significant improvements. There’s not a big need for anaesthesia, bleeding and swelling are reduced, and there’s not much discomfort afterwards. For tooth bleaching, a laser can speed up and enhance the action of the bleaching agents. Natural-looking fillings for cavities can be cured in minutes and patients can eat immediately afterwards. The benefits of laser dentistry are numerous and exciting!
