Experience the New Age of Oral Healthcare with Laser Dentistry
The days of drills and sharp picks may be coming to an end as dental technology continues to progress in new and exciting ways. Many patients fear the sound and jarring feel of the dental drill, so much so that some require sedation for even the most non-invasive procedures. Here at Robert L. Holloway, DDS, Dr. Robert Holloway, and his team are happy to offer our patients the latest in laser dentistry, such as laser filling of teeth and laser teeth cleaning.
The Future of Dentistry is Here
Laser dentistry has been around since 1989, with the technology becoming more versatile yearly. Today, lasers can treat various dental conditions and are a gentle and comfortable option for those who have difficulty tolerating the drill.
Many people don’t know this, but “laser” represents the scientific phrase “light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation.” A laser instrument emits invisible light energy in dentistry within a focused, narrow beam.
Lasers can be used in place of a drill in certain situations to penetrate hard and soft tissues. The tissues react upon coming in contact with the laser as it’s reshaped or removed. A few procedures laser dentistry is used in include:
- Treatment of tooth decay
- Treatment of hypersensitivity
- Treatment of gum disease
- Whitening teeth
- Treatment of tongue frenulum
- Treatment of “gummy smile”
- Removal of soft tissue folds
- Crown lengthening
Lasers have become a cost-effective, efficient, and comfortable way to treat patients who often report feeling little to no discomfort during a procedure. For patients who used to require heavy sedation, many have found they no longer need it when being treated by a laser.
Other uses for laser dentistry include
- The removal of benign tumors.
- Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
- Treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD)
- Nerve regeneration
- Treating cold sores
