Innovative Dental Laser Technology
Technology has made great strides and today, lasers play an important role in dentistry and can be part of your Care Plan. Whilst not all conditions can be treated in this way, many procedures using the laser can be done without anaesthesia.
Lasers are more accurate at removing decay than conventional drills, creating a smaller amount of trauma to the surrounding tissue and to the tooth itself. And, unlike conventional fillings, laser fillings can be done in all parts of the mouth in one visit as less anaesthetic is required. Other benefits include:
- less discomfort during and after treatments
- preservation of natural, healthy teeth whilst targeting decay
- fewer visits
- protects teeth against further decay
- reduced need for needle and drills.
