Dental Laser Technology In Chesterfield
Laser dentistry is effective, perfectly safe, and completely comfortable. When you choose to visit a laser dentist, you can relieve your anxiety about dental visits and dental work. Dental lasers are designed specially for oral use. They create a highly concentrated light beam full of energy that causes reactions in teeth and gum tissue. Your laser dentist in Chesterfield MO will use various dental lasers of different wavelengths for different dental procedures.

Laser Dentistry and Soft Tissue
Your laser dentist can use lasers on your soft tissue to remove, manage, and reshape it. With laser dentistry technology, overgrown or inflamed tissues can be removed with ease. Laser dentistry can also be used to treat gum disease and to keep gum tissue healthy during other dental procedures. Lasers can even be used to reshape the gums when necessary, like during the crown lengthening process. When your laser dentist uses this advanced laser technology for these procedures instead of traditional dental tools, your mouth is kept healthier because of the precision of the instruments, and you do not have to experience anxiety or pain.
Laser Dentistry and Cavity Detecting
Your laser dentist can use laser dentistry to detect tooth decay. Lasers can detect cavities much earlier than a dentist can in a traditional exam, and even faster than an X-ray can. Lasers can find over 90% of beginning cavities while X-rays usually find under 30% of early tooth decay. Like other laser dentistry procedures, the detection of cavities with lasers is completely painless. The tooth takes in the light of the laser and reflects some of it back to a sensor. This sensor can then determine how much tooth decay is occurring in each tooth. You can catch your cavities earlier so that you do not have to suffer the toothache that comes with a cavity that has become a gaping hole.
