Why Choose Downtown Family Dental of Leesburg for Laser Dentistry?

What is Laser Dentistry?

A laser is a highly focused, narrow beam of light. Unlike regular light that spreads out over a wide area, lasers concentrate a lot of energy into a very small area, which is what allows them to make incisions in soft tissues. In dentistry, lasers are normally used in place of traditional cutting instruments. Since they vaporize the tissue they come in contact with, they tend to cause little to no discomfort, and they make it easier for the mouth to heal after the procedure.  This makes dental lasers very versatile and appropriate for various treatments.

Indications for Laser Dentistry

 One common use of laser dentistry is treating gum disease. When aimed at the affected parts of your mouth, the laser can remove infected gum tissue and kill harmful bacteria to prevent the condition from growing any worse. We may also use a dental laser in place of traditional dental instruments for a variety of treatments that involve soft tissues. If you ask about laser dentistry during your next appointment, we can go into more detail about the treatments we offer using this technology.
