Applications of Laser Dentistry
Lasers have a wide application in dental science allowing the dentist to perform surgeries with ease and with minimal effects on the patient. It helps remove harmful bacteria hidden between gum lines, manage gum disease, and discard infected gum tissues. The laser also helps cauterize blood vessels, seal delicate nerve endings, sanitize the area, reduce any pain, swelling, discomfort and ensure a speedy recovery. The use of the laser also encourages the growth of new, healthy gum tissues.
