What Is Laser Dentistry?

By December 9, 2022No Comments

Affordable Raleigh Tooth Whitening 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 North Carolina industry including communications, research, manufacturing, entertainment, and medicine.

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

How do lasers 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

Holly Springs dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.

If you are interested in any of these procedures, call Cary Family Dental at 919-371-4428. Dr. Allan Acton has been providing unsurpassed general and cosmetic dentistry since 2003.
