At Dentistry on GreenLane our dentists use WaterLase laser technology for a number of dental treatments for patients living in the Thornhill community.
How can dental lasers help?
When used for surgical and dental procedures, lasers can offer many benefits and comforts for patients who are afraid or feel anxious around the traditional dental drill. In many circumstances, lasers can help with bleeding or swelling following oral surgery, and can potentially result in few dental visits for a more complex dental treatment.
What treatments are dental lasers used for?
- Tooth decay. Lasers can remove dental decay within your tooth and can help prepare your tooth for a filling.
- Gum disease. Lasers can reshape gums in cosmetic procedures and can also remove bacteria during a root canal procedure.
- Biopsy and lesion removals: Lasers can help relieve the pain of canker sores and can remove small pieces of tissue required for a biopsy.
- Teeth whitening. Lasers work in conjunction with professional whitening treatment. Lasers can speed up the active ingredients used in the bleaching process.
Laser are also a great alternative for anxious patients, or for children who are uneasy around the sound of a dental drill.
