The most advanced technology in the dental care field is the use of laser dentistry for any number of procedures ranging from the treatment of periodontal disease to the precise placement of dental fillings. This cutting-edge technology has transformed oral health care to the point that a wide array of procedures can now be performed with almost no discomfort to patients.
A very attractive feature of laser dentistry at Brooklyn Smile is that it can be used to correct damage to smiles without causing patients dental anxiety. This is especially helpful to patients looking for ways to minimize dental phobia. You know that your smile is one of your most valuable assets, and avoiding necessary dental work such as dental cleanings or routine fillings can put your smile at risk. Instead of avoiding the treatment you need because of your dental fear, choose a dentist near you in the Bayridge area like Brooklyn Smile that offers laser dentistry as an option in treatment modalities. Because the laser is incredibly thin when in use, it allows us to precisely target the areas of your mouth that need treatment. Precision matters in a lot of things, and it especially matters in dental treatment!
You already know how important a professional cleaning is to the health of your smile. But when a laser is used in conjunction with that professional cleaning, two things are accomplished. First, the light energy that’s produced by the laser breaks up the plaque and tartar that have accumulated on your teeth much more efficient than old-fashioned dental tools. And second, laser cleaning ensures minimal bleeding and swelling during the procedure.
Anesthesia is used for tooth extractions to minimize pain or discomfort. An injection of a local anesthetic is generally sufficient for this procedure, but if more than one tooth is being removed, general anesthesia can be used. A simple extraction is when the tooth has fully erupted and can be removed gently to preserve the bone around it for a later tooth replacement. Stitches may be placed after the tooth has been removed and the site will have to be treated with care for a few days. You will receive instructions on how to treat it to aid healing.
