LASERS IN DENTISTRY

A laser is a device that uses light energy to perform work.  Lasers are unique because they can treat targeted tissue while leaving surrounding tissue unaffected.  It is this property among others that allow your dentist to perform very precise procedures.  In addition lasers may seal off blood vessels and nerve endings during a procedure lessening bleeding, postoperative pain and swelling.  In many cases due to their gentle and precise nature lasers are used with little or no anesthetic.
