Laser dentistry involves the use of highly focused light beams to change or remove tissue, encourage healing, or achieve a cosmetic goal such as lightening the color of teeth. Laser dentistry is an excellent option for patients with dental anxiety, low pain tolerance, and children who are afraid of the dentist and unwilling to cooperate with most dental procedures.
Laser treatments operate similarly to any other dental procedure. After an oral examination you’ll receive a small amount of anesthesia to alleviate the sensation from the laser. During the procedure, your mouth with be held open with a mouth prop. You won’t feel any disturbances as you would with a drill and the procedure tends to be much quieter than most other forms of dental work.
Laser treatment offers a fast and almost painless procedure with none of the downsides of traditional methods. If you have suffered from dental anxiety and think that laser treatment might be right for you, come see us at Applewood Dental. Call us today to get started!
