One of the modern dental technologies we use at our office is laser dentistry. Unlike traditional dental surgery that results in scarred tissue, laser dentisty causes the tissue to regenerate and heal much faster. There is also less bleeding. It seals cuts as the dentist works so you won’t need stitches after any procedure. Our patients can expect to experience less discomfort and anxiety as a result. By using laser dentistry at our office, we’re giving patients a faster and more comfortable dental procedure.

If you’re interested in learning more or would like to know if Dr. Hill can use laser dentistry for your next procedure, please don’t hesitate to give our dental office in St. Louis a call at (314) 678-7876 to schedule an appointment or learn more. You can also email us if you prefer.

Although it sounds like something from the future, using a laser in the medical field is actually quite common. Generally speaking, the use of highly focused light beams to remove or alter tissue in small amounts. Dentists use lasers inside the mouth to complete a wide variety of dental procedures. Our patients prefer it due to the increased level of comfort they receive. In addition, lasers don’t make a noise like a drill. Patients can experience a more comfortable procedure, less bleeding, no stitches, a fast recovery, and less anxiety. What’s not to love about laser dentistry?

Advantages of Laser Dentistry

There are many advantages of laser dentistry. To start, it gives patients less pain and discomfort during their procedure. Since there are less pain and discomfort, it usually also helps reduce anxiety, especially because it is quiet, unlike a dental drill. Most patients don’t require any anesthesia.

Laser dentistry makes it easier to preserve tooth structure because it allows for the most precise cuts. Dr. Hill will only remove the necessary amount of tooth structure from your mouth. It also reduces the likelihood of infection post-op. The dental laser also creates a more sterilized environment because the laser kills bacteria with use.

Laser dentistry also helps your dentist complete procedures much faster than with traditional tools. This means you will spend less time in the chair. Patients also experience less bleeding, a faster recovery period and don’t require any stitches. We’re proud to offer these amazing benefits to our patients so they can have a better overall experience with us.
