An Evolution in Dental Care
For a Whiter, Brighter Smile
Reno Laser Dentistry
While they may sound like the stuff of science fiction, lasers are actually a very practical tool in dentistry, offering many benefits over traditional tools in certain situations. As dentistry has evolved, we’ve evolved with it in order to bring our Reno dental patients the latest in dentistry that improves results and cuts down on healing times while reducing pain and anxiety during their visits.
Here at Brosy Family Dentistry, we use laser dentistry to help improve patients’ overall dental health. Dr. Erin Anderson believes laser dentistry can help patients heal faster and help them have an overall better experience - especially when more extensive work (link to cosmetic services) is needed. Explore the benefits of laser dentistry in our Reno office below.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Lasers are essentially pulses of light that deliver energy to a precise location in the mouth. They are often used in dentistry for cutting and vaporizing tissue during surgery. They provide a quick and efficient method for tissue management allowing for greater dental success.
Our patients can benefit from this technology in several ways. In some procedures involving the soft tissue of the mouth, lasers can lessen or eliminate the need for painful, itchy stitches. Lasers also can eliminate the need for anesthesia in some treatments. Dental lasers also reduce bleeding, as the beam encourages blood clotting at the site of exposed blood vessels.
Other benefits include minimized bacterial infections post-procedure, thanks to the sterilizing effects of the laser’s high energy beam. This also reduces damage to surrounding soft tissue and promotes faster healing of wounds and nearby tissue. Their specific uses are endless - from reshaping gums to preserving teeth during cavity extractions and everything in between.
It is our goal at Brosy Family Dentistry to offer a comfortable, inviting experience, and lasers help us achieve this with many patients of all ages. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you owe it to yourself to see how things have changed … for the better.
