The skilled and caring team at Agape Dentist is proud to offer our patients advanced dental technologies that best suit their needs in Woburn, Massachusetts. One of the most advanced tools we use to help meet our patients’ dental needs is the technology of laser dentistry. With the use of laser dentistry and our AMD dental lasers for soft tissue, our dentist can improve the quality and efficiency of our treatments and procedures.
What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry involves the use of dental lasers to complete dental treatments more comfortably, quickly, and effectively. A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue. Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used with other dental instruments.
Lasers can be used for a number of dental treatments. During your visit, our dentist may recommend laser dentistry to:
- Treat periodontal disease by removing bacteria and infected tissue
- Cure (harden) a dental filling
- Remove the decayed or damaged portion of a tooth
- Treat cold sores and canker sores
- Speed up teeth whitening
- Recontour the gum line
In addition, there are many great benefits of laser dentistry. Many treatments completed with a dental laser are very comfortable and may not require the use of anesthetic. Dental lasers also shorten treatment time and healing time and decrease the risk of infection following treatment. Lasers can also minimize bleeding both during and after treatment, and because they are very precise, we are able to treat the targeted area without affecting nearby healthy tissues.
At our dental practice, we are dedicated to providing you with the best possible dental care. Our dentist and dental team continuously add to their education, and we are proud to offer laser dental treatment to ensure that your dental experience is comfortable and positive.
Although the laser is a very useful dental instrument, it is not appropriate for every dental procedure.
