Laser vs conventional dentistry; here’s why you should ask for Laser treatment when you visit your dentist
Your local laser dentist
Whilst conventional dentistry has offered a way to maintain your oral hygiene for many years, like many things, the industry has evolved and the advances in technology are taking oral health care to the next level.
At Advanced Dental Care Clinic in Oxenford we’re passionate about everything dentistry, and whilst for many people laser dentistry has come out of the blue, for us it’s been a much-anticipated service that we’ve offered to our clients for over 15 years!
Why settle for old school methods when there are so many benefits to laser? It’s a no-brainer really.
Firstly, what is laser dentistry?
Laser dentistry is quite simply a focused beam of light that is used to alter or remove small amounts of tissue, whilst laser has been used in the medical industry for years, it’s also used in the dental industry.
To become a laser dentist every dental professional must complete specific training to apply their skills to the new technology.
What procedures can laser dentistry be used for?
Laser dentistry can be used for, but not limited to the following procedures: gum disease treatment, fillings, crowns, onlays, root canal treatment, gum lifts, crown lengthening, and tongue-tie treatments.
Why consider laser dentistry?
- Laser dentistry has practically replaced the need for needles and drills, and whilst we are very careful and gentle with all our clients, we know that some people just hate the sounds, noises and vibrations that come with conventional Laser dentistry can offer an alternative that usually doesn’t require anaesthetic or the drill.
- Laser dentistry is more comfortable, without the need for needles and drilling, lasers can reduce swelling and bleeding, so you can experience a more comfortable procedure.
- Recovery is usually quicker, again because of the reduced swelling and bleeding, but also because laser can focus on the specific treatment area without needing to remove healthy tooth/tissues to get to the affected part.
- Treatment time can usually be shortened, and recovery time is usually minimal in comparison to conventional
- Laser dentistry’s use of the high-energy laser beam sterilises the treatment area to reduce the risk of infection.
