Laser Assisted Dentistry

Has the Holy Grail of dentistry finally been found?

No doubt laser-assisted dentistry has a lot to offer especially for patients who hate drilling, the high speed drill noise that comes with it and the numbing injection or are just scared to death going to the dentist.

The downside is, at least for the dentist, the high cost of dental laser equipment.

The benefits of laser treatment don´t just stop at needle-free drilling and noise avoidance – it goes much further and offers less pain after surgery, less bleeding during and after treatments, less bacterial infection, often no sutures are required and the healing after surgery is much faster.

Unfortunately the laser still can´t cut amalgam fillings, inlays, crowns or any other metal work.

Let´s hope more dentists will see the benefits of laser assisted dentistry and will offer this treatment for their clients.
