Laser Treatment

Laser Treatment

Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of conditions, including infections and tooth decay. The lasers can also reshape the gums or treat cold and canker sores without surgery. A dental laser is an instrument that uses light energy to perform specific dental procedures. This instrument emits a concentrated beam of light that removes tissue by cutting it off or vaporizing it. In dentistry, a laser is used for many processes, such as teeth whitening, crown lengthening, cavity treatment, and gum therapy. At Dental Specialists & Implant Center at The Woodlands, lasers are also an excellent alternative for people suffering from dental office anxiety because they can decrease stress by providing little to no discomfort and downtime following the procedure.

What Types of Issues Can Be Corrected with Laser Dentistry?

Gum Disease Treatment

Laser therapy is an effective treatment for helping to eliminate bacteria below the gum line, and it can also help reduce bleeding and inflammation to speed up the healing process.

Soft Tissue Removal

Some soft tissue growths and tumors in the mouth can be removed easily with laser therapy, reducing the need for conventional surgical methods.

Root Canal Treatment

Lasers are highly effective at disinfecting and sealing root canals. This prevents any infection from developing around the end of the tooth that has been removed, speeding up the healing process and preventing further complications.

The Benefits of Laser Treatment

Many patients choose this procedure to get a brighter smile. However, it also offers other benefits that may be just as valuable to patients. For example, this treatment option can treat gum disease and cavities. Periodontal treatment can eliminate the germs that cause these issues and reduce bacteria in the mouth. If a patient has an infection or disease affecting their oral health, the laser dentistry option may help. It works by killing harmful bacteria and removing the infected tissue. In this case, patients may only need a few treatments to restore their mouth to health.

This option is also ideal for patients who can’t stand getting their gums numbed. It doesn’t require any anesthesia to be effective, so there’s no need for an injection or numbing gel. Patients won’t have to worry about feeling any discomfort during the procedure at all. It also does not require using a scalpel or any other tool that could injure the mouth. Instead, a laser removes the infected tissue and kills the harmful bacteria. This offers patients a safer way to treat oral health issues without requiring extensive dental work.

Another benefit of using laser dentistry is that the procedure causes very little pain compared to traditional dental treatments. For the best dental care, visit Dental Specialists & Implant Center at The Woodlands at 3117 College Park Dr #230, The Woodlands, TX, or call (936) 231-8937.
