How Laser Dentistry Improves Dental Anxiety
Countless adults struggle with anxiety – and you don’t have to stay among their numbers. By accruing more positive memories of the dentist’s office, you can feel better about future procedures. Laser dentistry will help kickstart that process.
The aspect of a dental laser that patients really appreciate the most is its ability to enhance patient comfort. Lasers don’t function the same way dental drills and other traditional tools do. Instead of producing heat and friction, they cause water molecules in target tissues to vaporize, removing the decayed portion of the tooth. Soft tissue lasers cut through gums and other soft oral tissues without producing the same level of discomfort as a scalpel. Plus, the healing process will be faster and less likely to yield complications.
Because dental lasers produce such narrow beams, our dentists are able to complete your procedure without causing any collateral damage, and with fewer side effects (like microfractures) than those associated with drills.
