What is a laser dentist?

Simply put, a laser dentist replaces traditional instruments with a laser because it offers better results. There isn’t one way of describing what laser dentists do because the practice is so versatile. Depending on the wavelength, each laser is classified as either soft tissue, hard tissue, or all tissue. Different wavelengths allow the lasers to perform operations on different tissues, hence the strength. Laser dentistry is noninvasive and simplifies procedures, so laser dentists are fans of the technology.

The Benefit of Visiting a Laser Dentist for Children

Laser dentists offer many benefits for patients. As stated above, laser dentistry is non invasive, so it reduces bleeding. A laser dentist is a dream for those with dental anxiety. It eliminates needles from treatment more than 95% of the time, and reduces the need for a drill too. Eradicating those instruments from your visit takes away the “fear factor.” Switching focus to orthodontics, using a laser with your regular treatment can accelerate tooth movement. Treatment and recovery expected to be faster for both dental and orthodontic patients.

Safety Concerns

The FDA approves the safety of laser dentistry. At Band & Wire, we prioritize safety and take precautions. We rigorously train our laser dentists and they are all members of The Academy of Laser Dentistry. Laser dentists and patients wear protective eye gear, and procedures are done in a private setting.

The Solea Laser

The Solea laser is sought after because of its advanced technology. It performs hard and soft tissue procedures so it is classified as both tissue. Examples of soft tissue procedures include root canals, cavity treatment, and frenectomies. Hard tissue procedures include bone cutting, sleep apnea treatment, and working with facial aesthetics. The Solea offers better outcomes than traditional dentistry because of its advanced technology. Our pediatric patients have exhibited reduced anxiety and parents are thrilled.
