What Is Laser Dentistry?

Categories: Dental Technology

Katy Laser Dentistry For Area Dental Patients The word “LASER” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?’) Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in almost every Texas industry including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment and medicine.

Lasers are now used in some technologically-advanced Katy dental practices on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow Katy cosmetic dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible.

How does laser dentistry benefit dental patients?

  • Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
  • Shorter healing time
  • Decreased chance of infection
  • Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
  • Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary

Katy area dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canal procedures, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.
