Did you know that as of the early 1990s, lasers have been successfully implemented and used in a variety of dental treatments? Not only are lasers highly effective at making extremely precise treatments, they are widely effective in a broad array of dental procedures to ensure your smile gets the treatment it needs. 

What uses do lasers have for your smile? Listed below are some of the widely accepted uses of laser dentistry:

— Cancer Biopsies: For oral cancer biopsies, lasers can be deployed to remove a small amount of tissue from a person’s cheek.

— Oral Ailments: Lasers are often set to precisely eliminate painful lesions and sores from inside a person’s mouth.

— Cavities: When dental fillings are obligatory, lasers can be used to clear the decay around cavities and prepare a tooth for a filling.

— Root Canal Therapy: When root canals are needed to save teeth, lasers are often implemented to remove excess bacteria and tissue to ensure the area is clean for the root canal therapy to be successful.

— Teeth Whitening Treatments: With many types of professional teeth whiteners, the gel used can be activated with a light source such as a laser.
