5 Important Facts You Should Know About Laser Dentistry

Laser Dental Services at Stephen J Matarazzo DMD office Quincy Area

Laser dental services can improve your overall dental experience by simplifying common treatments and expediting healing. Dr. Stephen Matarazzo in Quincy is well-versed in laser dentistry procedures and can help you get the most from these services. The following facts explain more about laser dental procedures and how they can improve your treatments.

Minimally Invasive

If lengthy dental procedures put you on edge, you will appreciate how laser dentistry can shorten your procedure. Laser dental techniques are more precise than traditional techniques, enabling Dr. Matarazzo to perform your procedure in less time and with less trauma and pain.

Capable of Treating Numerous Conditions

Laser dentistry can be used to treat all kinds of dental conditions to include periodontal disease, tooth decay, root canals, cold sores, and problems with sleep apnea and tooth sensitivity.

Dental lasers work by emitting light energy in a narrow beam to eradicate decay, reshape gum tissue, cut out lesions, or whatever is needed to treat your dental condition. If you are not a fan of the use of drills for your dental treatments, laser dental services offer a welcomed alternative to treating common dental issues.

Less Pain

As dental lasers cause less tissue damage than traditional techniques, they are less painful, which can eliminate your need for anesthesia. Lasers also sterilize the area that is being treated to reduce your risk of post-op infection, swelling, and bleeding.

Promotes Quicker Healing

Laser light prompts cellular regeneration to help gum tissue heal quicker. This can expedite your recovery from major dental treatments. A quicker recovery enables you to return to your normal routine sooner.

Beautifies Your Smile

Dental lasers can be used in conjunction with teeth whitening treatments to remove stains and give you a whiter, brighter smile. If your smile tends to show more gum than teeth, aka a “gummy smile,” lasers can be used for cosmetic gum contouring to give your smile a more attractive, balanced appearance.
