While it may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, our Grand Haven dentists can sometimes use lasers to help patients maintain healthy teeth and gums. Laser dentistry is FDA-approved and safe for patients of all ages. Laser dentistry is minimally invasive because it cauterizes as it cuts, reducing bleeding and recovery time. A laser uses concentrated light energy to cut through soft and hard tissue.
Lasers are often an effective substitute for dental drills, scalpels, and other invasive tools. Our dentists will be able to determine if lasers are appropriate for your unique diagnosis.
For example, we may replace a drill with a laser when preparing a tooth for a filling. However, keep in mind that laser treatment can’t be used for everything. For example, we can’t use dental laser treatment to eliminate cavities that are hiding between your teeth.
Many of our patients appreciate that they are able to return to work or school after their appointments. Laser dentistry is highly precise, which means we don’t have to cut through as much hard and soft tissue to fix oral health issues. For example, during gum surgery, a laser makes more precise incisions than a scalpel. Because of this, the recovery time is often minimal.
At Grand Haven Smiles, laser dentistry is just one of the ways we’re revolutionizing the dental exam to give you the highest possible level of dental care. To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Haven, MI laser treatment dentists, give our office a call at (616) 209-4704.
