Did you know that you can treat dental problems using a laser? Laser stands for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” A dental laser concentrates light energy to treat the hard and soft tissue of the mouth. We use soft tissue lasers that quickly and precisely cut the gum tissue. Laser dentistry provides general dental treatments to patients because we can prevent gum disease using dental lasers. You can learn more about laser dentistry in our Gaithersburg, MD, dental office.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry in Gaithersburg, MD
There are multiple advantages to laser dentistry treatments. Dental lasers offer:
- Quicker healing times
- Precise treatment
- Pain-free dental care
- Low chance of infections
- Minimal bleeding
- No sutures
- Soundless treatment
Lasers are a sterile, easy-to-use dental technology. Unlike traditional dental drills, they offer silent treatment. As a result, we can provide quiet yet precise treatment using a small laser to cut and remove infected tissue.
How We Use Dental Lasers
Our handheld dental lasers treat the gum tissue that supports the tooth enamel and roots. We can treat patients with gingivitis and gum disease using dental lasers. Patients with gum disease can experience symptoms such as bleeding gums, gum swelling, and gum recession. Lasers remove infected gum tissue to renew patients’ gum health.
Before treatment, we will provide you with eye protection to prevent eye irritation from the laser’s lights. Our dentists are trained in laser dentistry and ensure that patients feel as comfortable as possible during treatment. In most cases, patients will not require sedation during their laser treatment.
Removing infected gum tissue with a dental laser prevents the spread of infection because lasers are sterile. Lasers also encourage gum growth. After treatment, patients regenerate gum tissue and will notice new attachments between the teeth and gums. Laser gum treatments not only remove damaged and infected gum tissue but help develop new healthy tissue.
