Why Laser Dentistry is So Popular
- Posted on: Jul 15 2018
It used to be that the only thing laser was popular for was in the cosmetic industry, but times have definitely changed and laser is now used in almost every health-related industry. From lip rejuvenation to treating gum disease, Paul Peterson uses laser technology to help patients achieve the smile of their dreams. So, what exactly is laser dentistry and why is it so popular?
What’s Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry can be used to treat a variety of different oral concerns in patients. Here at our office, Dr. Paul Peterson uses laser dentistry primarily to treat sleep apnea, periodontitis, and to even help remove cavities. Although each of these treatments are very different from each other, every laser treatment that Dr. Peterson performs uses precision to help solve the oral issue without interfering with the surrounding gums or tissues.
Why Is It So Popular?
In most instances, when laser is a treatment option, Dr. Peterson will recommend it because it’s fast, easy, and effective. Plus, because laser is typically more precise than other treatments, it cuts down on recovery time. Also, laser can also usually be done faster than other more traditional oral procedures. Another reason why patients choose laser for things like cavity treatments is that it doesn’t involve any drilling or shots to prepare your tooth for the filling.
In addition to performing laser to treat these oral conditions, Dr. Paul Peterson also uses it for cosmetic purposes like adding more collagen to your lips, cheeks, under your eyes, and other areas of the face.
