Lasers are relatively new to dentistry and revolutionising the industry
In recent times laser dentistry has started to become mainstream as it’s a huge breakthrough within the dental industry that offers treatments which are more comfortable, quicker and have less risks.
What is laser dentistry?
Laser stands for Light Amplification through Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser dentistry uses powerful narrow beams of energy to perform precision dental treatments, as opposed to more traditional forms. This means instead of dental drills and scalpels, the team at Oracare is able to utilise laser technology to perform a selection of treatments.
Benefits of laser dentistry:
The use of lasers over traditional methods of dentistry has manty benefits, such as:
Less painful and more comfortable
Quicker recovery times
Reduces bleeding as the laser promotes clotting
Reduced chance of collateral damage to other tissue
Guided tissue regeneration
The heat from the laser disinfects tissue and kills bacteria
Lower chance of infection and inflammation
Avoid dental drills and instruments
The side-effects of laser dentistry?
The risks of laser dentistry are far more minimal than some of the risks of traditional dentistry. The ease-of-use with laser dentistry makes it a far more appealing option for many dentists.
Laser dentistry still has the risk of infection and damage to surrounding tissue just like traditional methods, however the risks are far lower with precision lasers.
Other risks include the damage of the tooths pulp and gum injuries, however these are rare while being performed by a trained dentist.
