What Is Laser Dentistry?

Diaganodent Dearborn The word ‘LASER’ is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?’) Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in almost every Dearborn industry including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment and medicine.

Lasers are now used in some technologically-advanced Dearborn dental practices on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow Dearborn cosmetic dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible.

How do lasers benefit our Dearborn dental patients?

  • Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
  • Shorter healing time
  • Decreased chance of infection
  • Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
  • Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary

Dearborn dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, Diagnodent decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.
