Laser dentistry services available at Greenbelt Dental Health
In modern dentistry, lasers are increasingly being used to replace traditional dental techniques. Lasers can be used to treat various conditions in the mouth, including caries (cavities), periodontal disease, and tooth sensitivity. They also make it easier to perform certain procedures, such as root canal treatment, implant placement, and especially cosmetic dentistry treatments. Dr. Christopher Naranjo of Austin, Texas, is pleased to offer laser services at his office using the Fotona LightWalker laser device.
What are the benefits of laser dental treatments?
- Less pain for patients due to their ability to remove decayed tissue without causing trauma
- Faster healing and recovery time
- Improved accuracy during procedures
- Reduced risk of infection
- Sterilization of tooth, bone, and gum tissues
Additionally, some lasers can potentially reduce bleeding during surgery and promote healing in soft tissues such as gums. Due to these technological advances, lasers are becoming an increasingly popular option for dentists to offer their patients.
What are the risks of laser dentistry services?
Laser dentistry is not without risk, however. Make sure that the dentist you choose has experience and training in using lasers for dental treatments, as improper use of these devices can cause tissue damage or burns. Dr. Naranjo is skilled in using the Fotona LightWalker device to ensure safety and efficiency. Additionally, some laser treatments are an additional cost for patients and may not always be covered by insurance. As with any medical treatment, discuss all options with your dentist before deciding what treatment is right for you.
