What is a cavity?
A cavity, also known as “caries,” is an area of decay that affects the natural tooth. It is caused by acids and sugars breaking down tooth enamel, causing holes in the structure. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, patients with cavities will experience the worsening of their condition, with cavities often developing deep within the tooth. If a cavity becomes large and impacts the dental pulp inside of the tooth, it can result in a serious infection that requires root canal therapy to treat—or worse, extraction.
How can laser dentistry help?
Dr. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel are excited to offer laser dentistry for the treatment of cavities. Instead of using a dentist’s drill to remove parts of the affected tooth structure before placing a filling, we utilize high-quality, state-of-the-art laser devices designed to achieve the same results with laser light instead. This reduces pain and discomfort while ensuring proper treatment. Many patients who have cavities prepared before filling with laser devices will often not require anesthetics. Laser dentistry also reduces bleeding and improves recovery time following dental procedures. Not all dental practices have reinvested into their office to provide laser dentistry and other advanced solutions for patients.
