Since their introduction to the medical field, lasers have changed the way doctors and dentists offer care. With lasers, medical care is more comfortable and less invasive. What’s more, lasers give doctors more control over the entire process. As a result, results are more precise, appointments are shorter, and patients recover much quicker.
One common use for dental lasers is gum disease therapy. In the past, advanced gum disease therapy required a scalpel and stitches. Today, a dental laser can comfortably remove bacteria below the gumline without the need for stitches at all.
Gum re-contouring is also done with a dental laser. With gum re-contouring, Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley can quickly and easily remove excess gum tissue from teeth, creating fuller, shapelier smiles.
Other uses for dental lasers include:
- Cavity detection and treatment
- Curing bonding materials
- Some forms of teeth whitening
