Technological advances have dramatically changed dentistry over the last few decades. Among the new technologies available, lasers have been one of the most pivotal tools in changing how we provide safe and effective dental care. At The DentaLink in Ballwin and St. Louis, Missouri, we have equipped our office with the latest dental lasers because they are incredibly versatile and offer a number of benefits over traditional treatment options.
Lasers are used for a wide variety of applications in both medicine and dentistry. They work by using a controlled beam of light energy to perform specific functions – for example, some lasers are designed to work on hard tissues such as teeth and bone, whereas others are intended to treat the delicate gums and soft tissues. Lasers can be used for preventative, restorative, and cosmetic purposes, including:
Patients and our dental team both love laser dentistry for many reasons. In addition to being a gentler and more precise method of delivering dental care, lasers sanitize and cauterize tissues as they are being treated, which helps reduce the chance of bleeding and infection. In addition, they are often comfortable enough that patients don’t need dental anesthetics!
At The DentaLink, our dental team is always happy to discuss the benefits of laser dentistry with our patients and answer any of your questions.
