Did You Know That Lasers Can Help Fix Broken Smiles?

Posted .

Did you know that lasers can help fix broken smiles? Lasers are designed to improve your oral health and are often used to prepare your mouth for dentistry treatments including dental fillings and root canal therapy.

If you have a cavity, a dental filling is needed to restore your smile and prevent a tooth from becoming infected or ultimately require an extraction. Lasers can be used to clean the areas around a tooth and help remove any decay that still lingers, and clears away bacteria from the filling site. If a root canal therapy is needed, lasers can help remove excess gum tissue and bacteria that could hamper a root canal’s success rate or lead to infection or eventual tooth failure.

With teeth whitening treatments, lasers can be used to activate specialized gels on your teeth designed to remove deep stains and discolorations. Lasers are also capable of gently cleaning your gum tissue or assisting in gum tissue removal. Lasers are highly effective at removing canker sores and lesions, and can even be used to help assist with oral cancer screenings during a cancer biopsy.
