Does laser dentistry hurt?
One of the many benefits of laser dentistry is that it is actually more comfortable than traditional periodontal surgery. Rather than cutting and stitches, the procedure for traditional periodontal surgery, we use laser light energy to reshape and remove any diseased tissue and promote healing. Laser dentistry allows our dentists to work with much more precision, leaving behind healthy tissue.
We make sure that you are numb for your procedure because we believe in providing exceptionally comfortable care for our patients. We also provide detailed follow-up care instructions so that you can enjoy a fast and incident-free healing experience.
Because lasers are less invasive, you will heal more quickly. Laser dentistry seals gums during the procedure, so stitches are not usually required, even for frenectomies, gingival sculpting, and crown lengthening.
We can even use a laser to prepare your gums for restoration. Because less bleeding occurs, a more accurate result is possible.
Canker sores and cold sores disappear faster with laser treatment.
