Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry

The incorporation of laser into dentistry has brought many benefits to the table. It has gotten rid of several traditional practices that were time-consuming, painful, and involved a long healing period. The technology uses a strong and intense light beam to achieve the desired cosmetic and restorative results.

Yuma, AZ dentists, Drs. Thor G. Thorson, Stephen S. Garner, and Jason R. Boeskin make use of this advanced technology to make dental procedures more comfortable and less painful for their patients. A combination of state-of-the-art dental equipment and well-trained professionals makes Gild Ridge Dental one of the best dental practices in Yuma, Arizona.

Why should you choose laser dentistry?

  • Since the laser cuts and seals the wound almost immediately, the healing period is reduced drastically.
  • Tissue regeneration occurs much effectively as compared to traditional oral surgeries.
  • It helps to preserve the natural tissues of the mouth.
  • The need for an anesthetic would be reduced.
  • There would be no need for stitches or sutures.
  • The chances of contracting a bacterial infection are next to none.

What are the applications of laser in dentistry?

Removal of soft tissues: When the gums need a surgery, such as during the removal of puffy gums, a laser can be used. Dental lasers can dissolve the soft tissues to give the gums a complete makeover.

Crown lengthening: Sometimes, the excessive growth of the gums makes the teeth look much smaller than they really are. Dental lasers can reshape the gums to make the teeth look longer.

Disinfecting a cavity: Removing the decay and disinfecting a cavity used to be a complicated process. Lasers can effectively kill the bacteria near the site of the cavity prior to carrying out a filling process.

Drilling the tooth: With the use of lasers, the need for drills and anesthesia are completely eliminated. They are widely used for tooth preparation.

Tumor removal: Dental lasers can be used to remove benign tumors and reduce the risk of oral infections.

Teeth Whitening: Laser teeth whitening is a process of removing the stains from the surface of the teeth using a whitening gel and a laser to activate it.
