Pain-free Laser Dentistry
Pain-free laser dentistry
Many people are afraid of going to the dentist when many dental procedures require anesthesia injections, stitches, and lots of recovery time. Fortunately, with the advancement of dentistry, Bonita Family Dental is making dental visits less painful and comfortable. Laser dental treatment is a fast and effective method that uses heat and light to perform a wide variety of dental procedures. Even better, laser dentistry is pain-free.
Laser dentistry works with an intense beam of light energy to perform detailed dental procedures. The treatment allows dentists to eliminate decay in teeth, painlessly cut or vaporize tissue on contact, and remove the soft tissue from gums. In this advanced procedure, there is less blood loss because the high-energy light beam burns as it works.
This also reduces the recovery times and the need for painkillers. Laser dental cleaning also prevents bacterial infections by disinfecting the area and minimizing damage to the surrounding tissues.
