The word “LASER” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?’) Lasers are used in almost every industry, including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment and medicine.
Lasers are now used in some technologically-advanced dental practices on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow cosmetic dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible.
How do lasers benefit dental patients?
- Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
- Shorter healing time
- Decreased chance of infection
- Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
- Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary
Dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.
The latest dental technology is useless without the skill and experience necessary to deliver the best possible outcomes. Let us show you some photos of the results we routinely achieve at Vanguard Dental Group in Derry.
