t Sherwood Dental, we have invested in our patients by purchasing the latest technologies for our Oakville, ON practice. That includes integrating modern methods into our facility to improve healing and outcomes. We are excited to announce laser dental treatments
at our practice using a dental laser called the Waterlase Biolase.
What is laser dentistry?
The focus of laser dentistry is to offer solutions for common dental problems with laser light energy. Lasers are used in several areas of medicine and continue to be an excellent solution for many medical concerns. It has also been integrated into dentistry as a treatment for soft and hard tissues in the smile. That includes gum tissues and teeth. The Waterlase Biolaser device used in our practice offers solutions for many dental problems and continues to be the first line of defence against periodontal disease and tooth decay.
What is laser dentistry used for?
There are many approaches that may integrate laser technologies. For hard tissues, the Waterlase Biolase device can be used for the teeth and bone. The device can treat cavities by preparing the area, removing damaged tooth structure, and disinfecting the inner canals before placing a dental filling. Soft tissues, such as the gums, can also be treated with the Waterlase Biolase, allowing the dentist to cut gum tissue to contour them or kill bacteria associated with periodontal disease. Regardless of how it is used, our team has extensive training and experience in using laser dentistry to our advantage in treating patients.
What are the benefits of laser dentistry?
Advantages of laser dentistry include:
- Fewer side effects
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Convenient treatment of bacteria and infection
- Less bleeding following procedures
- Protection of healthy tissue due to precision cuts
- Preparation of teeth for fillings and root canals
- Faster recovery times
- Faster and more precision treatments
Does laser dentistry hurt?
Laser dentistry is far more comfortable for patients and reduces the need for anesthesia in some instances. Our team is well-versed in using laser devices for dental work and can ensure comfort from start to finish with our gentle techniques. Patients can still ask about sedation methods if they are dealing with dental anxiety before their appointment.
