What is laser dentistry?
Laser dentistry uses today’s modern technologies to achieve amazing results! Lasers are used at Clarendon Dental Arts for cleaning the teeth and gums when problems such as periodontal disease have occurred. Periodontal disease, or “gum disease,” is a damaging condition for the smile. It can impact all areas of the smile, including the teeth, gum tissues, and jaw bone. With proper care and preventative maintenance, many patients can avoid developing this problem in the first place. However, when it does occur, it is best to seek treatment as soon as possible with a dentist who offers laser cleanings.
Laser light can be used in many areas of medicine and is great at targeting areas of the smile that may be impacted by bacteria. Periodontal disease is essentially an infection. With treatments such as laser periodontal care, patients can target the bacteria once and for all and bring their smile back to health. Laser treatments offer precision care with amazing strength to fight bacteria that may be contributing to the infection. Patients can combine laser dentistry along with antibiotics to address periodontal disease in more than one way.
Why laser dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a wise investment, as it can provide thorough cleaning of the teeth and treatment of bacteria contributing to disease. Laser dentistry is comfortable, results in less bleeding, and allows the dentist to address the problem directly where it resides. This precision is unmatched by any other instruments used in the dental practice and continues to be a popular treatment for this and many other oral health conditions.
