Laser Dentistry Technology
By Patrick Casey on July 23, 2012
A modern breakthrough in dental technology, laser dentistry treatments are a quicker, less painful way to create and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. Laser dentistry can be successfully used to both treat and diagnose dental concerns, and offers many benefits for patients. When you meet with Dr. Patrick Casey at our Montreal cosmetic dentistry center, we can determine if laser dentistry is an ideal treatment method for your personal smile goals.
What Is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a cutting-edge, FDA approved method of dental treatment that uses a precise, high-energy beam. Laser dentistry technology can be used to complete a variety of cosmetic and restorative treatments, including soft and hard tissue procedures, as well as diagnostic tests for oral health and cavity detection.
Why Choose Laser Dentistry?
At Smile Montreal, we can use laser dentistry to improve the appearance and health of our patients’ smiles. Lasers also allow Dr. Casey to clean away decay and cavities without the use of a dental drill. Laser dentistry is a state-of-the-art treatment method that offers many benefits patients should consider. Dental treatments that utilize laser dentistry technology feature many advantages, including:
- Minimal pain and bleeding
- Faster, easier recovery
- Quicker procedures
- Less invasive treatment
- Less anesthesia required
- Instant laser sterilization
- Extreme precision
- No stitches needed
Laser Dentistry Cosmetic Treatments
Laser dentistry is an increasingly popular cosmetic dental treatment for patients with soft tissue concerns, including “gummy” smiles. When patients want to reduce the appearance of the gums in their smile, laser dentistry is the quickest and most comfortable method available. Unlike traditional gum removal methods that often require incisions and stitches, laser treatments actually seal off nerve endings, prevent bleeding, and minimize inflammation. Recovery times are also drastically reduced. Laser dentistry can also be used to reduce the appearance and discomfort of cold sores. Using laser dentistry, Dr. Casey has successfully enhanced the smile aesthetics of our Montreal reconstructive dentistry patients.
Laser Dentistry Restorative Treatments
When patients are suffering from cavities or tooth decay, laser dentistry can be used to safely remove bacteria while leaving as much healthy tooth surface in place as possible. Lasers can also be used to erase infections from root canals. Unlike traditional dental drills, lasers do not vibrate, resulting in the less damage to surrounding teeth, less pain, and less bleeding. Laser dentistry is an excellent treatment for gum disease, and can also be used to aid in exposing wisdom teeth.
Laser Dentistry Diagnostic Treatments
Lasers dentistry technology also provides a simple, pain-free diagnostic tool. Lasers are an ideal method of early, non-invasive cavity detection, allowing treatment before the cavity progresses and requires more extensive care.
