Modern technology has proven to be optimal over conventional methods. Patients benefit from minimally invasive procedures by experiencing less discomfort, less need for local anesthesia (freezing) and a higher chance of tooth success.
One of the reasons that patients need freezing is due to the friction produced when removing tissue or tooth structure. Dental lasers eliminate friction resulting in procedures being done without numbing the area. Depending on the situation, patients can expect an improved experience by having little to no freezing, however more complicated procedures might still require some. Patients report that the laser is quieter than the drill and they experience little to no sensation which results in a more improved dental experience.
Being able to perform procedures with little to no freezing speeds up appointment times which is beneficial to both the dentist and the patient. Patients can expect to enjoy a faster, pain-free experience during laser dental treatments.
