What Is No Shot Laser Dentistry, and How Does It Work?

Do you know that laser dentistry is less grueling, less painful, and less invasive? Innovations in the field of laser technology have helped highly skilled dentists to make the dentistry experience not just painless alone. Laser dentistry is relatively fast and the recovery time is quick. No drill, no short dental filling is one of the most popular laser dental procedures. In our previous blog, we have explained 4 safety measures to follow before taking safety measures for novocain dentistry in Brea. Let's understand more about this revolutionary innovation that offers painless dentistry.

What Is Laser Dentistry?

It is a modern technique employed to perform dental procedures using a laser. A dentist who specializes in general dentistry can get training on using lasers for dental procedures and become a laser dentistry specialist. A lot of dentists are now offering laser dentistry primarily because it provides painless and noiseless dental procedures.

How Does Laser Dentistry Work?

A hard tissue laser can cut through the hard structure of the tooth using water. It is relatively more precise than a traditional drill. The laser wavelength is absorbed by the minerals in the tooth whereas soft tissue laser is absorbed by blood hemoglobin and water. Soft tissue laser causes mild or no pain as it seals the nerve ending. Meanwhile, a hard tissue laser does not generate noise or heat and does not cause any pain.

Types of Laser Dentistry in Brea:

Two types of lasers are used by laser dentistry in Brea: hard tissue lasers and soft tissue lasers. For procedures like dental filling, a hard tissue laser is used to cut and prepare the surface. On the other hand, soft tissue laser is used for the procedures that require reshaping gums, correcting tongue ties, performing biopsies, or removing lesions or ulcers.

Reason to Opt for Laser Dentistry and Shot-free Dentistry in Brea:

Many people avoid visiting the dental office due to fear of pain and the scary sound of the drill. Even when procedures can become painless with the shot, many people are more scared to even take the shot. Shot-free dentistry removes the fear of the shot and further pain during the procedure.
