Lasers are devices which produce a concentrated, narrow beam of energy in the form of light. Lasers have been used in dentistry since the 1990's and are a safe & effective means of assisting with a wide range of dental procedures.
The energy produced by a laser provides a controlled means of shaping and removing tissue within the mouth.
The use of lasers in dentistry removes the need for using a drill and anaesthetic in some circumstances. This relieves pain and discomfort which may be experienced through such traditional dental techniques.
Using lasers during treatment often shortens the time to heal and can reduce the symptoms and effects of dental treatments. The precise nature of laser therapy also ensures surrounding tissue is minimally affected.
