Laser Dentistry in Syracuse
Laser dentistry is now available at our Syracuse, New York dental practice, Martin & Winkler. Laser dentistry provides us with an alternative means of performing several dental procedures, including surgery on oral soft tissue.
Laser dentistry involves the use of a special dental laser, a high technology device that generates a beam of concentrated light, and offers many benefits over traditional procedures. Dental lasers are also low powered, which is essential for treating the delicate tissues of the mouth. An added benefit, the controlled heat and light up of the laser destroys many bacteria and viruses found in the mouth.
As the laser excises unwanted tissue, it also sterilizes the area and seals off blood vessels, minimizing the chances of infection and post-operative bleeding. In many instances, the need for local anesthetic is eliminated, resulting in more comfort for the patient during and after a laser dentistry procedure.
There are many potential benefits of laser dentistry. They include:
- Faster healing
- Reduced risk of infection
- Decreased sensitivity
- Less bleeding
- Less post-operative pain
Helping you keep your smile for a lifetime is our primary goal. Laser dentistry may be a step toward reaching that goal. If you have further questions about laser dentistry please contact us.
