Effective and incredibly precise, laser dentistry has become a vital tool for a variety of dental treatments. At DC Dental Spa, we rely on laser dentistry technologies to reduce the risk of tissue damage while treating very specific areas of the mouth. Using laser dentistry, we are also able to create better experiences for patients who are afraid or anxious about being at the dentist.
The Many Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry produces many benefits, including:
- Minimized risk of bacterial infections
- Reduced wound healing time
- Minimized bleeding
When performed with laser dentistry, some treatments do not require anesthesia. Many treatments do not even require sutures. The technology also minimizes the risk of damaging the surrounding tissue when performing procedures.
How does DC Dental Spa use laser dentistry?
We use laser dentistry for many procedures. The technology is used to examine cavities and tooth decay, seal tooth roots to prevent sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, reshape gum tissue to create a strong foundation for natural-looking restorations, improve your appearance and remove folds of soft tissue caused by poorly-fitting dentures. We also use laser dentistry during dental filling procedures, eliminating the need for local anesthetic injections and drills.
Laser dentistry may be particularly helpful for patients who are afraid of certain procedures or have a general fear of the dentist. If you feel anxious before your appointment, talk to our friendly and knowledgeable staff about laser dentistry and sedation dentistry options.
Offering laser dentistry is just one of the ways we better serve your dental needs. If you have questions about the technology or would like to schedule an appointment, contact our team today!
