Laser therapy in dentistry provides patients with a more comfortable dental treatment experience. Using laser dentistry, your dentist is able to deliver a precise treatment that is more comfortable, quicker, and provides more stunning results.
Benefits of laser therapy
There are several benefits to receiving a laser therapy dental treatment.
- Many laser treatments do not require anesthesia, and the recovery time is much quicker than with traditional treatment methods.
- Treatments are more comfortable.
- There is less potential chance of bacterial infection because laser treatments are so precise.
Soft tissue laser treatments are done by Dr. Donohue to help sculpt and shape the gum tissue around beautiful dental work. In this way, it would be a cosmetic procedure. Soft tissue lasers can also be used to relieve a condition called, "tongue tied" where the ligament beneath an adult's or child's tongue prevents them from speaking clearly. Lasers can also be used to remove pathology for a painless biopsy. The advantage to using a laser is no bleeding, very little post-op discomfort and anti bacterial, for faster and better healing of the gums.
Dr. Kristen Donohue is trained and certified by the Academy of Laser Dentistry.
