Important Uses of Laser Dentistry

Posted .

In this age of modern dentistry, most people have heard of laser dentistry. However, dental lasers can perform many services that you may not have previously considered. In fact, here are four unconventional but transformative functions that laser dentistry can perform:

Treatment of Cold Sores

If you frequently develop painful cold sores, laser dentistry may be able to ease your discomfort. In addition to reducing the pain caused by cold sores, laser dentistry speeds up the healing process so that you can be free of your cold sores sooner.

Oral Tumor Removal

Benign tumors that occur in the soft tissues of the mouth should be treated as soon as possible. As long as they are benign, they can often be eradicated by a dental laser.

Cosmetic Gum Contouring

You can have a “gummy smile” if too much gum tissue hides your teeth. Fortunately, Dr. Samuel D. Knight can help you achieve a more pleasing smile by using a dental laser to recontour your gum line.

Teeth Whitening

Laser dentistry can be paired with traditional tooth whitening treatment to address and reduce dental stains that have penetrated deep into the tooth enamel.
