Modern dental techniques make treating oral health conditions much easier and less invasive. At Proud Smiles in Sandy Springs, GA, we strive to provide the highest standard of dental care, and we use laser dentistry to increase treatment accuracy and effectiveness and minimize patient discomfort and recovery time.
What is Laser Dentistry?
Dental lasers are used to improve accuracy and reduce recovery time for a variety of dental treatments. The laser itself is a hand-held instrument delivering a very precise beam of high-intensity light only to the areas to be treated, leaving healthy tissues intact. This also means that the depth and cut are minimized to provide quick, predictable treatment with minimal down time.
Laser Dentistry Benefits and Uses
Not all dental practices offer laser dentistry, but Proud Smiles is proud to offer this revolutionary treatment option to provide benefits to patients:
- Minimal bleeding
- Reduced recovery time
- Less need for anesthesia
- No downtime
- No sutures
- More precision, leading to better aesthetics
We also use laser dentistry to treat several different types of oral health conditions:
- Tongue ties and lip ties
- Gum contouring and bleaching
- Mucocele removal
- Cold sores
Is the Laser Painful?
In many cases, patients do not require anesthesia during treatment with laser dentistry. Patients often choose laser dentistry because it provides a more comfortable treatment. Treatment time and recovery time are significantly reduced, allowing you to return to your normal activities sooner.
