Everyone wants their smile to look as good as possible. When your smile looks beautiful, you have more confidence about yourself. You know that brushing and flossing your teeth is extremely important for keeping your smile healthy. Your smile will not look its best when your teeth and gums are not in good health. By taking care of your teeth at home and visiting your dentist at least twice a year, you can avoid the oral health concerns that can cause damage to your teeth and cause problems with the way that your smile looks. Your dentist has so many treatment options that can dramatically improve both the health and the appearance of your smile.
One of the latest advancements in dental care in Bonney Lake, WA comes in the form of laser dentistry. Through laser dentistry, many of the procedures that once were risky and caused pain for the patient are much easier. A laser can be used in many of the dental treatments that your dentist provides. With the use of a laser, there is no need for anesthesia and much less pain and risk for infection.
A laser can be used to remove tissue and bone. It can shape the gums and the teeth and can be used in cavity treatments. Unlike the old methods of using needles and drills, the dentist can now use a precise laser beam to remove the cavity, without hitting the nerves and causing pain. This can allow for more precise control over removing the cavity so that the patient does not have to endure painful drilling and the pain from the needle injections in the gums.
Laser dentistry can also be used to remove diseased and inflamed gum tissue. It can treat painful canker sores and shape the teeth for a crown. While laser dentistry is not for every patient or every dental condition, it can be used in many different treatments. As more and more dentists are making use of this new technology, the availability will increase. If you are interested in learning more about laser dentistry, contact Buckley Dental Care today.
