Why Dentists – and their Patients - Love Lasers
Patients who visit our Ithaca office realize very quickly that we prioritize their unique needs, and that we rely in the right technologies to meet them. Laser dentistry has become increasingly common since the mid-90s, and innovative devices offer numerous advantages, including:
- Minimally invasive soft-tissue treatments
- Greater comfort and less bleeding during soft-tissue treatments
- Lower risk of infection
- Less post-operative swelling and discomfort
- Less stress and anxiety during dental care
Dental lasers may be used in a variety of procedures. This technology has significantly improved the way that we treat gum disease; even more advances cases of periodontal disease. Using laser light, it is possible to pinpoint areas of inflammation and infection, and remove those tissues with a great deal of precision. The benefit of greater accuracy is that surrounding healthy tissue remains intact. In addition to removing damaged tissue, laser therapy also encourages remaining gum tissue to reattach to root and tooth surfaces by reducing the depth of pockets that have formed around them.
Cosmetic Care with Lasers
Lasers are not only intended for therapeutic advantages; devices like the Picasso dental laser may also be involved in creating a more attractive smile. Gum contouring, like other soft tissue procedures, has been made much more precise and gentle thanks to lasers, which quickly shape the gums to reveal more tooth structure, eliminating a “gummy smile.”
