Laser/ Digital Dentistry in Hollister, CA
Laser dentistry allows your dentist to perform many traditional dental procedures safely, less invasively, and with fewer side effects? Lasers have offered the dental world a load of benefits that you’ll be able to enjoy the next time you visit our office.
How are dental lasers used?
You may have already had a dental procedure done using lasers and didn’t even realize it. Lasers can be used for a host of different dental treatments including:
- Performing biopsies
- Treating gum disease
- Removing excess gum tissue
- Exposing partially erupted teeth
- Whitening teeth
- Hardening dental resin for dental bonding, fillings, and veneers
- Treating root canal infections
- Reshaping and contouring gums and bone tissue
- Reducing canker and cold sore pain
What are the benefits of laser dentistry?
You’ll enjoy a multitude of advantages when we use laser dentistry over traditional methods. In fact, sometimes the laser is able to completely eliminate the need for a drill or even anesthesia. For many of our patients, not needing needles prior to treatment is a major plus.
Lasers are very precise instruments, more so than regular manual instruments. This means they can target and treat problem areas more accurately and efficiently. Laser dentistry can also reduce your recovery time. Since laser dentistry is more precise it can reduce the chances of post-procedural bleeding and discomfort and improve your healing time.
Dental lasers are completely safe when used by one of our trained medical staff. Before you receive laser dentistry we can provide you with protective eyewear to wear during your treatment, just as you would wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun while outside.
