Laser may sound scary and make you think of Star Wars or James Bond, but lasers used in healthcare are very gentle. Lasers use concentrated beams of light energy to target specific tissues and are the standard of care for many procedures in ophthalmology, cardiac and brain surgery, and dermatology. In dentistry, we use lasers to precisely treat both soft and hard tissue.
Lasers are quieter than drills, reduce the need for anesthetic and target tissue with a narrow beam to allow pinpoint, safe, concentrated therapy.
Benefits of lasers include, precision, reduction in pain/inflammation, and less bleeding and swelling.
