Here are 8 reasons why you should try laser dentistry:
1. A more pleasant, more comfortable dental experience
Sadly, many people put up with the pain of conventional dentistry – or worse, forego essential dental appointments altogether for fear of pain or blood. With modern laser dentistry techniques, you’ll be amazed at how there will be fewer injections, less drilling – and with commonly performed gum procedures – less bleeding. Visiting the laser dentist is a pleasant, comfortable experience.
Heat, pressure, and vibration are the three main causes of dental pain that are associated with the traditional dental drill. At Finer Smiles Laser Dentistry in Melbourne , we use the Biolase Water Laser, which allows us to treat teeth and gums with incredible precision, without generating any painful heat, pressure or vibration, which means the need for anaesthetics is substantially lessened. Put simply, there is less need for needles – and fewer numb lips!
2. Less bleeding and fewer stitches
With common procedures such as gum treatments, laser dentistry is ideal as there will be less bleeding. With lasers, the ‘coagulating capability’ is increased, so there is a lot less blood. High energy light beams from the laser assist in the clotting of the blood vessels in a way that is simply not possible with conventional dentistry practices. Because of this, requirement for stitches is considerably reduced.
3. Less swelling and post procedure pain
As the laser causes less interference with your tissues, there is less bleeding, bruising and swelling, and consequently less pain when you leave either of our Melbourne-based clinics. So, you can make the most of your day without hiding a swollen face or feeling that you can’t show your face in public.
4. Less need for anaesthesia
You’ll be delighted to know that, for some procedures, anaesthesia won’t be necessary at all, so there will be no numb face, no dizzy head, and best of all – more money in your pocket!
5. Less chance of infection
One of the brilliant benefits of laser is that the high energy beam sterilises the area we are working on and there’s far less chance of infection – another advantage over traditional dentistry and more peace of mind for the nervous patients out there.
6. Fewer Visits to the Dentist
Because laser dentistry is less invasive, time is saved, enabling you to have several procedures in a single session, rather than having to come back for repeat visits – it saves you time and money!
If you’re looking for a dentist in Melbourne, laser dentists are certainly a recommendable choice as lasers are used so effectively and economically for a vast array of dental procedures. As well as gum treatments, laser is brilliant for hard tissue procedures such as cavity preparation, decay removal, surgical procedures involving bone, cosmetic dentistry and even root canal work.
8. Precision and safety
The precision of the laser enables us to remove only the damaged parts of the tooth, leaving the rest intact. Traditional dentistry relies on drilling, which often involves removing large amounts of the tooth to complete the procedure, all the while potentially causing cracks and pain. Laser precision means e can maximise the effectiveness of the treatment while minimising disturbance to your teeth. It’s more accurate and safer all round for the health of your teeth.So there you have it – perfect teeth, pain-free.
