Laser dentistry allows the treatment of decayed enamel and gums by directing an extremely focused light beam to alter or remove small amounts of tissue, eliminating the need for hand-held instruments like scalers and drills during treatments.
Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive treatment option and is popular with children and nervous customers who are uncomfortable visiting the dentist.
Laser treatments also have a shorter and more comfortable healing time compared to traditional procedures, making them a popular option for eligible customers.
Laser dentistry can be effective in treating:
- root canal infections
- gum disease
- gum inflammation
- misshapen gums
- wisdom teeth removal
- sleep apnoea caused by throat tissue
- damaged nerves
- oral tumours
- cold sores
