LASER THERAPY Q&A
What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy uses innovative technological instruments that emit light to help target and treat several dental conditions. The word LASER stands for light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation. This means the production of focused and amplified light creates the desired effect.
What are the benefits of laser therapy?
Laser therapy produces numerous desirable outcomes in dentistry. This treatment is more efficient and accessible than other alternatives, namely drills, which can increase patient anxiety and lead to delays in seeking help. Laser therapy also helps keep soft dental tissue intact because of its minimally invasive design. Laser therapy treats many soft and hard tissue conditions, including:
- Dental pain
- Nerve damage
- Hypersensitivity in the oral cavity
- Poor wound healing
- Teeth discoloration
- Gum disease
The use of laser therapy continues to increase, replacing and outshining non-laser alternatives, which tend to be more costly, require longer recovery times, and induce more significant pain.
