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 California industry including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment, and medicine.
Lasers are now used in some technologically-advanced Carlsbad dental practices on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow Encinitas cosmetic dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible.
How do lasers benefit our San Marcos CA 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
Oceanside dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.
If you are interested in any of these procedures, call La Costa Dental Excellence at 760-633-3033. Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth have been providing unsurpassed general and cosmetic dentistry since 1988.
