Types of Dental Lasers

There are two types of dental lasers used for dental procedures which are approved by the FDA.

Hard Tissue Lasers - They are highly absorbable by tissues of the bone and useful for cutting through tooth structure.

Soft Tissue Lasers -These lasers are highly absorbable by water and hemoglobin making them more effective to be used in the more delicate tissue layers.

During Your Laser Procedure

Your laser procedure would seem just like any other dental procedure. Patients who have a tough time dealing with anxiety and fear would be administered with dental sedatives. The laser would only generate slight vibrations and would not cause any discomfort as compared to other dental tools. If the procedure creates any signs of bleeding, it would be easily wiped away. 

Patients would be advised to continue good oral hygiene habits. We will instruct you more about laser dentistry and aftercare tips.
