FAQs of laser dentistry

How does laser dentistry work?

Precision technology that makes use of intensely focused light energy is laser dentistry. Dr. Anna Vaysman offers patients an efficient way to receive dental care by performing a variety of operations using laser dentistry technology.

Dental lasers come in two different varieties. While soft lasers are appropriate for the more delicate tissues, hard lasers are used to cut into teeth and bones. As they work, lasers shut your blood vessels and nerves, which results in very little discomfort.

Dental laser applications are still growing and improving. Anna Vaysman, DMD, possesses the knowledge and expertise necessary to employ laser methods safely and effectively.

What benefits do laser dental procedures offer?

Compared to other techniques, laser dentistry provides a number of benefits. Soft tissue laser treatment frequently doesn’t require stitches afterward, and for some treatments, anesthesia may not even be required.

Lasers promote blood clotting, resulting in significantly reduced bleeding, and they have a sterilizing effect that lowers the risk of infection. Laser dentistry reduces harm to the tissues around the wound, and the wounds it creates heal more quickly because laser radiation encourages tissue regeneration.

How are lasers used in dentistry?

Many procedures can be accomplished with laser dentistry, including:

  • Reshaping gum tissue
  • Excisional and incisional biopsies
  • Exposure of unerupted teeth
  • Gingivectomy
  • Hemostasis and coagulation
  • Periodontal pocket removal of diseased, infected, inflamed and necrosed soft tissue
  • Reduction of gingival hypertrophy
  • Lengthening of Soft tissue Crown
  • Releasing a tight frenulum
  • Eradicating soft tissue folds created by incorrectly fitted dentures
  • Leukoplakia

The use of laser technology is changing dentistry in a number of important ways. OCT, for instance, provides a safe method of inspecting the interior of your teeth and gums.

Laser dentistry offers a more comfortable alternative for treating aphthous ulcers (canker sores) and cold sores (herpes virus), as well as the painless removal of benign tumors from your gums, palate, lips, and cheeks.

With the use of photobiomodulation or low-level laser therapy, damaged blood vessels and nerves can heal more quickly, and laser-assisted uvuloplasty (LAUP) is a cutting-edge method for treating sleep apnea.

Dr. Vaysman is truly a local treasure. Sometimes “extracting” a positive dental review from a patient can be difficult, but I can assure you of the numerous local dentists, she wears the “crown”.
