LASER is an acronym that stands for “light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation.” In dentistry, lasers are used for a wide range of procedures to make treatments more comfortable and convenient for patients. Dental lasers can cut or reshape tissue and replace scalpels and other traditional tools to make dental procedures less invasive, safer, and more efficient.
At Essence of Dentistry, we use the most advanced technology available to stay true to our commitment to providing exceptional quality and the highest level of value to our patients. Our high-tech dental lasers minimize pain and discomfort, reduce treatment time, improve procedure results, and enhance patient experience.
At Essence of Dentistry, we use advanced dental lasers in the treatment of periodontal disease to efficiently eliminate bacteria and accelerate tissue regrowth. With lasers, gum disease treatments are minimally invasive and more efficient. Therefore, they are more comfortable and convenient for patients. Because they seal nerve endings and blood vessels when penetrating tissue, lasers also promote faster healing.
Our experienced dentists use dental lasers instead of traditional drills to provide a less invasive treatment option for tooth decay. Using a laser, they make small incisions in the tooth enamel to provide access to the decayed area of the tooth and remove it. Lasers also kill bacteria and help support the long-term health of teeth.
Our skilled dentists also use dental lasers to whiten teeth. In fact, laser teeth whitening is the most efficient treatment option and can provide instant results. Patients can frequently achieve the whitening results they desire in just one visit to our dental office in Redmond, WA.
Because they are much more precise and gentler than traditional tools and also cauterize tissue as they work, lasers minimize discomfort and bleeding. In many cases, our dentists do not even need to use local anesthesia to control pain and patients do not report any post-procedure discomfort.
Lasers precisely target problem areas within the mouth, allow for a faster recovery, and reduce the likelihood of infection or other complications. In most cases, patients experience little to no bleeding during their procedure as opposed to traditional methods.
Thanks to the precision of dental lasers, many treatments that were once invasive can be performed with little to no discomfort and require less recovery time. With dental lasers, we can provide minimally invasive treatments for a wide range of issues, including tooth decay and gum disease.
