If you’re interested in maintaining a healthy smile, you probably understand that there are several things you’ll need to do, such as visiting our dentist. Fortunately, modern dentistry makes these visits more comfortable and efficient. For example, did you know that many treatments can be performed with lasers? This can make treatments even less intrusive and more efficient.
Our team can use lasers to treat many areas of your mouth. Laser dentistry is often used as part of a number of treatments, including treating gum disease. Laser dentistry can also be used as part of wisdom teeth removal and other extractions.
However, laser dentistry can be used for a number of less common treatments. For instance, did you know that laser dentistry can be used to help children whose jaw is hindering speech development? Similarly, laser dentistry can be useful for addressing TMJ disorder by helping with inflamed jaw muscles. Lasers are also used in the teeth whitening process.
Laser dentistry can also be useful because it tends to reduce recovery time and is often less painful. In fact, many treatments that are performed with lasers can be done without anesthesia. Furthermore, implementing lasers can reduce bleeding, damage to surrounding tissue, and the need for stitches.
If you’d like to learn more about laser dentistry, please don’t hesitate to contact CrossPointe Dental by calling us at 801-224-7337. Dr. Damon P. Swenson and our team will be happy to answer any questions you have. We’re eager to hear from you soon.
