In modern dentistry, lasers pack a powerful punch when it comes to making dental procedures shorter, less invasive, and more effective. What does laser dentistry mean for you and your smile? Find out more about laser dentistry and the procedures it benefits with Prosthodontist Dr. Francesco Maratta in New Haven, CT.
What is laser dentistry?
Laser dentistry replaces the traditional dental drill with Biolase Waterlase, a powerful and effective dental tool which uses a mixture of air, water, and laser energy to treat dental issues like teeth decay or gum disease. Laser dentistry is vastly flexible and dentists can use the Biolase Waterlase Iplus system for anything from treating cavities to performing oral surgery. Your dentist will use a Waterlase system with a laser wand and different attachments to achieve different results and perform various procedures.
The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
The most obvious and striking benefit of laser dentistry is its ability to be virtually painless and the fact that it often does not require any anesthetic at all and, in some cases, only minimal amounts. This eliminates the wait times for the work area to become numb and the droopy, puffy after effects of local anesthesia used in traditional dental methods. The laser’s design uses air, water, and laser energy to perform procedures. The water continuously sprays over the laser’s path, eliminating any heat or dehydration and ensuring that your procedure is almost painless. Laser dentistry is less invasive than traditional techniques and has proven to have faster healing times, less bleeding, and more effective results.
