Lasers aren’t just reserved for science fiction movies any more. This technology can be used in many applications to help improve the quality and care of the dentistry that we provide. Here at Park West Dental Associates, we use laser dentistry for a better dental experience.
Laser dentistry can take on many forms for numerous treatments. One of the lasers we use in the office is the DIAGNOdent. This is a cavity-detection laser that can detect signs of decay sooner than any other method, allowing us to save more of your original tooth structure. It’s also more comfortable because we won’t need to use a dental hook to examine each of your teeth unlike the traditional method.
We also have a soft-tissue laser that we can use to lengthen crowns, perform gum grafts, reduce gum tissue, and to treat gum disease. Laser dentistry also results in faster healing because there is less bleeding and no need for stitches.
If you’re interested in learning more about laser dentistry and how it can help improve your dental experience, please give us a call. We want to provide our patients with the best dental care possible, and this is a great example of how technological advances help make this possible.
