Laser Dentistry – The Future is Now!
Lasers have revolutionized healthcare in a variety of ways, allowing treatments to be quicker and less painful than ever. Laser dentistry does the same with oral health and treatments. This option is often more comfortable and easier for a patient to tolerate than traditional procedures.
Some of the conditions dental lasers can help treat include tooth sensitivity, decay and cavities, gum disease, and tooth discoloration.
Using lasers for dental procedures can save time, money, and help you stay comfortable. At Grand Ledge Smiles, we use lasers to treat your teeth and gums. These lasers are also known as hard tissue and soft tissue treatment.
We use lasers to detect cavities, and if they are found, lasers can clear the decay and make space for a filling. With lasers we can often avoid using local anesthetics and drills, which is a huge relief to many of our patients.
To treat tooth sensitivity, we use lasers to treat the roots of the teeth below the gums. We also use lasers to help reshape gums to reduce a gum-prominent smile or lengthen the tooth crown to enhance esthetics. We can also remove soft tissue from around ill-fitting dentures to relieve your discomfort.
There are a lot of other procedures that use lasers as well:
- Removing benign tumors
- Treatment for TMJ
- Treating cold sores
- Nerve regeneration
- Sleep apnea treatment.
Laser treatment can be less expensive than traditional procedures because you need fewer visits to achieve the same goal. Dental insurance often covers laser treatments the same way as other options. However, you’ll want to check with your insurance company to see if your individual plan does too.
There’s every reason to explore whether laser dentistry is right for you!
