Are you afraid of the dental drill? If so, laser dentistry is here to save the day!

Laser dentistry in Detroit, Michigan, is a branch of dentistry that has been around for about 10 years. It has been making more and more patients feel more relaxed and comfortable in the dental chair. Not only does it provide comfort, but it can also:

-Remove decay inside a tooth and prepare the surrounding enamel for the dental filling

-Kill bacteria and reshape the gums during a root canal treatment

-Treat gum disease

-Perform a biopsy, which involves removing a section of your oral tissues so it can be examined for oral cancer

-Relieve pain from canker sores and remove lesions from the mouth

-Quicken the teeth-whitening process by activating the bleaching solution

As you can see, lasers can aid in many dental treatments. Lasers can also make visiting your dentist more convenient, especially because they can:

-Reduce the need for anesthesia by causing less pain compared to a dental drill

-Reduce anxiety in patients who are afraid of the dental drill

-Minimize swelling and bleeding during soft-tissue treatments

-Save more healthy tooth enamel while placing a dental filling

Laser use in dentistry is beneficial in many ways. If you have any questions or if you would like to learn more, please call Dr. Golden Laser Dental at 313-371-9880 and talk to your dentist, Dr. Richard Golden, or a member of our team. We are happy to help you!
