Laser Dentistry and Dental Phobia
You are not alone if you have dental anxiety or avoid going to the dentist out of fear of pain. This is a common issue that you do not have to deal with. Laser dentistry has revolutionized dental care to the point where procedures can be performed in such a way that you won’t even realize you’re getting work done.
Our office has allowed patients throughout the Scottsdale area to overcome their fear of the dentist after experiencing how pleasant a laser dental treatment can be.
The Laser Dentistry Experience
We can eliminate the common causes of discomfort during dental procedures – heat, pressure, and vibration – by using laser dental treatments. Many people do not require anesthesia once the problem has been resolved. As a result, we are frequently able to complete fillings without the need for an injection.
Furthermore, laser technology allows us to target specific areas of your mouth with greater precision. Because the laser is so thin, we can make very precise incisions when needed. Lasers can even be used to treat problems like tooth decay. The surrounding gum tissue, on the other hand, is not impacted or irritated in any way.
With traditional metal dental tools, a dentist’s accidental slip of the hand can irritate the surrounding tissue. Our patients can have the same dental procedures as before, but with a faster recovery time, because this risk has been removed. At the same time, our patients are more at ease than they would be if the procedure were done the traditional way.
Laser Gum Surgery
Gum disease treatment is perhaps one of the most significant advances made possible by gentle dentistry. Gum disease is so common that almost every adult will develop it at some point in their lives. The signs and symptoms usually begin with red, swollen, and bleeding gums, but if left untreated, gum recession can occur.
Receding gums are especially dangerous because they expose more of the tooth and roots, allowing bacteria to attack them. As a result, many people experience bone and tooth loss. Treating gum disease is critical for preserving your teeth as you get older. The traditional method of treatment entails pulling the gums away from the tooth and scraping the bacteria away with metal dental tools.
The procedure has been completely transformed by laser dentistry. We provide periodontic care, and our patients’ gum disease can be treated with lasers that break up plaque and tartar. This will get rid of the irritant that’s causing the gum disease all while being non-invasive.
