Benefits of Laser Dentistry

We recently introduced a diode laser into our practice here at Krengel Dental! Laser dentistry brings a plethora of benefits to your oral health and overall experience when visiting the dentist. Let’s explore the full range of advantages below.

How Does Laser Dentistry Support Oral Health and Patient Experience?

  • Faster Healing Times

One of the best advantages of utilizing a laser to complete oral care practices is the comfort it brings to patients. Laser dentistry causes less pain and discomfort compared to traditional dental tools and because of this, patients experience faster healing times.

  • Reduced Infection Risk

Conventional metal dental tools, when used during a procedure, often cause abrasions in the gums leaving room for infection to occur. In comparison, lasers sterilize the desired area eliminating bacteria that exists. This results in a reduced risk of infection.

  • Less Discomfort

We recognize that visiting the dentist can be a stressful, uncomfortable experience for some patients. However, as we discussed above, the utilization of laser technology is less painful than traditional tools. And in many cases, they can eliminate the need for anesthesia. 

In Which Procedures can Laser Dentistry be Implemented?

Unfortunately, not every condition can be treated with our diode laser but there are still a great many for which the laser can be implemented!

  • Tooth Decay

Any tooth with a great deal of decay can be treated by using lasers to hollow out the tooth, ridding it of decayed matter. This process is made more efficient and safe with our new technology.

  • Gum Disease

Laser dentistry is hugely beneficial to those who suffer from gum disease. In many cases, lasers can pinpoint and remove harmful bacteria from under the gum tissue which reduces bleeding, promotes healing, and treats symptoms of active gum disease. 

  • Yellow Teeth

Yellowing or browning teeth can be quickly whitened with the help of lasers. During this procedure, lasers activate the peroxide substance applied to lessen the discoloration. 

Krengel Dental is thrilled to provide you with a more safe and comfortable dental experience with the use of our new diode laser. Are you interested in an advanced alternative to metal tools? Contact our office today!
