Lasers are among the latest instruments to be used in dentistry. Amazingly precise and fast acting, lasers offer several benefits to patients. Here is a look at some of the ways in which laser dentistry shines.
Makes Treatment Easier for Patients
When lasers are used, treatment is faster and more comfortable. Bleeding is dramatically reduced by lasers, which essentially cauterize incisions as they work. This is ideal, for example, in gum reshaping and tissue biopsy procedures. After laser treatments, recovery also occurs more quickly.
Offers Antibacterial Effects
Lasers can kill bacteria on contact, creating a valuable tool in certain treatments. This makes lasers a worthwhile addition to gum disease treatments, in which our dentist works to eliminate bacteria from the periodontal pockets and tooth roots. Before placing fillings, our dentist can use lasers to better rid decayed areas of bacteria.
Boosts Teeth Whitening Results
Our San Francisco dentist can use lasers to give patients a faster, more comfortable teeth whitening experience. After putting peroxide gel on the teeth, our dentist applies the laser to the enamel in order to activate the bleaching effects.
Lasers are a major addition to restorative and cosmetic dental care. At CitiDent, patients can receive a full range of innovative laser treatments. Patients can schedule a consultation with Dr. Ben Amini, our expert in laser dentistry in San Francisco, to find out more about our laser dentistry options.
