What do you know about laser dentistry? You’ve probably heard of it, but do you ever wonder exactly what it is? For example, do you know what benefits you could enjoy if you decide on laser identity? Is laser dentistry safe? If you’ve ever had questions such as these, we’re happy to help.

Many practices have decided to rely on laser dentistry, at least in part, because of their versatility. In fact, many treatments that required a drill can now be done almost exclusively with lasers. Generally, this leads to a more enjoyable experience for many treatments. For example, laser dentistry can be used to help with infected gum tissue and can help children who suffer from incorrect muscle attachment in the jaw. This attachment can hinder speech in young children. Laser dentistry can also remove jaw inflammation by helping with TMJ, fight tumors, and even help with whitening treatments—and many of these treatments require less healing time than they would otherwise.

This option is especially useful for those who suffer from dental anxiety because it is minimally invasive and the laser can replace the drill in some instances. Similarly, laser treatment heals faster, doesn’t require stitches, reduces bleeding in your mouth, and generally has less painful recovery.

If you are interested in these benefits, please don’t hesitate to contact Shoals Smile by Design at 256-314-0676. Dr. Jamine Rogers will examine your mouth and see if you are a good candidate and talk about your options with you. We’re excited to hear from you.
