Did you know your dentist, Dr. Van Parham, uses lasers in his office? Well, it’s true! Your dentist uses dental lasers because they are extremely beneficial for him and for every patient who sits in our dental chair.
Dental lasers are so beneficial, in fact, that they can reduce your pain, anxiety, swelling, and bleeding. They can also help your dentist perform a more comfortable, accurate, and successful treatment.
Speaking of treatments, there are many that might involve the use of a dental laser, including:
-Tooth decay removal: The laser can easily remove the decay from a tooth and it can also prepare the tooth for the necessary filling.
-Gum treatment: If your gums have receded from your teeth, lasers can reshape the tissues in your mouth to give you a more attractive and healthy smile.
-Root canal therapy: The laser can kill the bacteria in and around the area that is being worked on, which reduces the chance of infection.
-Biopsy: The laser can remove a portion of your oral tissues from your mouth so your dentist can examine it for oral cancer.
-Lesion removal: Lesions and canker sores can be very painful and inconvenient, but with the help of a laser, they can be removed and relieved in no time.
-Teeth whitening: The laser is helpful in speeding up the teeth-whitening process in the office. During the treatment, your dentist will apply a whitening solution to your teeth. Then, he will activate the solution with a laser.
