Laser dentistry is a branch of dentistry that uses lasers to treat various dental conditions. All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light, which can be used as a cutting instrument or vaporizer for tissue, or as a source of heat to enhance the effect of teeth whitening agents. In recent years, laser dentistry has replaced many traditional dental practices, making treatments more precise and less painful. Dental lasers are intense beams of light that can be used to perform a wide variety of treatments, such as modeling and the removal of soft tissue. Medical professionals use lasers, which are extremely focused beams of light, to alter or remove tissue in small quantities.
Laser surgery isn't limited to dentistry, but many people have never heard of it before having it done. Dentists use lasers in a variety of procedures involving the inside of the mouth, whether to remove tissue that is too large, to reshape the gums or to whiten the teeth. Laser dentistry is also ideal for children who feel anxious or scared when undergoing dental treatment. These lasers are used to treat periodontitis, including killing bacteria and activating tissue regeneration.
