How is laser dentistry different from traditional forms of treatment?
Many patients find laser dentistry to be more relaxing than traditional tools such as drills. Lasers also offer dentists a higher level of precision with tremendous power. Some patients find that the healing associated with laser dentistry is much more rapid than traditional dental procedures, and lasers make it easier to control bleeding.
How can I verify that my dentist is qualified to use a laser?
Consult with your dentist regarding their laser training. They should have completed courses directly from the equipment manufacturer, and many dental schools also offer specialized laser training and credentials. One of the most noteworthy organizations is the ALD, or Academy of Laser Dentistry.
