Since 1994, dentists have been using lasers in a variety of treatments, and are constantly finding more uses for them. Lasers are becoming more and more popular in other fields of medicine, but few people realize they are vastly becoming more useful in dental medicine as well.
Teeth whitening treatments can be bought or purchased nearly everywhere these days, including your local grocery store. However, in an in-office whitening treatment, lasers may be used to activate the whitening gels.
Lasers are also used to clean and prepare teeth for fillings and root canal therapy. If any tissue or bacteria needs to be eliminated or eradicated, lasers can do the job efficiently. If gum tissue needs to be extracted and used for a cancer biopsy, one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is with the use of a laser.
