Out of all the developments in dental technology, one of the most exciting is the dental laser. This is a very versatile instrument, and our endodontist can use a dental laser to address multiple issues with your teeth and the soft tissues of your mouth. At our endodontic office, we utilize the latest in laser technology to clean and disinfect root canals. In this procedure, a tiny filament is inserted into a canal and laser energy is used to kill bacteria in the canal to provide a better overall outcome.
Laser dentistry has many other benefits. One of the biggest advantages is that lasers are much less invasive than traditional dental instruments. Our endodontist can treat problems directly with minimal, if any, impact on the surrounding tissue. This results in less bleeding and often shorter treatment and recovery times. Laser dentistry is also more hygienic than traditional treatments and can greatly reduce the risk of infection. Laser treatments are very comfortable, and in some cases, you may not need any anesthetic.
