The word “laser” may put science fiction weapons in mind, but Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, it’s one of the advanced forms of dental technology we use every day.
In this blog post we’re going to discuss laser dentistry. It may sound scary, but laser dentistry provides a fantastic alternative to drills. Many procedures performed with lasers don’t require patients to be medicated, allowing for quicker healing times.
Many patients become apprehensive while waiting for a shot of painkiller before a dental procedure. Laser dentistry allows for a more relaxed, less stressful dental visit. Our patients also welcome going home without a numb mouth or drool dripping down their chin.
Lasers have actually been used in dentistry for many years. It used to be they were only used on soft tissue, but today laser technology can also be used on teeth and bone. They’re perfect for minimally invasive procedures.
Lasers aren’t likely to replace a high-speed hand piece, at least not anytime soon. But they’re a great tool, and are part of the advanced technology at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.
