Dental lasers used in Red Bank, New Jersey area practice
Visiting the dentist can be a daunting experience for any patient. The sound of the drill, the numbing of the mouth, and the idea of having someone in one’s personal space can make any patient consider backing out of their next appointment. But routine visits and certain treatments are necessary to maintain a patient’s oral health and wellness, and with this in mind, Dr. Glenn A. MacFarlane of Red Bank, New Jersey, proudly offers the use of dental lasers to make each visit a positive experience!
What are the benefits of dental laser treatment?
Dental lasers are used in many areas of dentistry to provide treatment that would otherwise be performed manually with certain dental tools. The dentist’s drill, for example, is replaced with a laser device. Instead of using a drill to remove decayed portions of a tooth and prepare it for the placement of a dental filling, a laser device can instead break down the hard tissues with less discomfort, sometimes eliminating the need for anesthetics. Advanced laser dentistry offers precision, comfortable care for patients who need treatment of the soft and hard tissues of the mouth.
What are dental lasers used for in dental practice?
Dental lasers are incredibly versatile and can be used to achieve oral health and wellness. They may also be utilized in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of the smile. Below are just a few of the ways in which dental lasers are used in our practice:
- Treating canker sores and cold sores
