Laser Dentistry in Springfield MA Laser Dentistry Springfield
Cosmetic laser dentistry is a cutting-edge way to correct periodontal problems. A special beam of light, or laser, is directed onto the problem areas and gums. Many such lasers have gained Food and Drug Administration approval (FDA) and are considered safe for both adults and children.
There are a variety of uses for lasers in the field of dentistry. Lasers can be used for cavity removal, teeth whitening and to harden bonding materials used in fillings. Surgical lasers are more accurate than a scalpel or drill, and allow the dentist to conserve as much bone and tooth as possible. Lasers can eliminate painful drilling and reduce patients’ fears about cavities. The laser vaporizes decay and is usually painless, eliminating the need for anesthesia. A low-powered laser can be used to detect tiny pits within tooth enamel that can become cavities.
