Novato, CA Dentist Outlines Benefits of Treatment with Laser Dentistry

Written by Dr. McConnell on Jul 28, 2014

Advances in dental technology allow us to provide dental treatments that significantly improve our patients’ comfort. The use of gentle laser dentistry is just one example of how our Novato, CA Dentist office uses state-of-the-art technology to effectively enhance the experience for our patients. By using laser dentistry we can provide our patients with important dental treatments comfortably and quickly.

Laser dentistry is an exciting advance in modern dental technology and has proven effective for:

  • Treating periodontal disease, also known as gum disease
  • Removing cavities
  • Performing root canals
  • Killing harmful bacteria and promoting the regrowth of healthy tissue
  • Safely enhance the patient’s smile when used with cosmetic dentistry treatments

There are many benefits to using laser dentistry rather than traditional dentistry in a number of important aspects:

  • In most cases, the use of any type of anesthesia by the dentist is unnecessary during laser treatment.
  • Laser dentistry can be used safely and comfortably treat children and adult patients with dental anxiety.
  • Since laser dentistry eliminates the need for drilling, the anxiety associated with the sound of a high speed drill in adults and children is also eliminated.
  • There is no invasive cutting, so laser dentistry results in minimal bleeding and requires no stitches after treatment.

By using laser dentistry our Novato, CA Dentist office is able to precisely pinpoint the areas where treatment is needed. This allows us to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible when filling teeth or performing root canal therapy. Maintaining healthy tooth structure is important for your oral health and well being.
Through laser dentistry we can provide our patients with efficient, comfortable dental treatment. Please contact our office for a free consultation so we can discuss the ways in which laser dentistry may benefit you.
