Laser dentistry is a precise and effective way to perform many common dental procedures, and has been proven to minimize the pain and recovery time required for almost every major oral procedure.
- Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require inconvenient oral stitches, as skin can be cauterized on site.
- Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding in the mouth because the high-energy beam of light aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus reducing bleeding.
- Chances of a bacterial infection are reduced because the high-energy beam sterilizes any area it is working on.
- Damage to tissues surrounding the procedure site is minimized, creating less irritation and improving healing times.
- Wounds associated with oral surgery procedures typically heal faster and tissues regenerate at an accelerated rate.
