Lasers in Dentistry – Minimally Invasive Procedures

Laser endodontics provides gentle treatment with the utmost precision. The Fotona LightWalker Laser is one of the most advanced dental laser systems available today – and it is capable of addressing endodontic concerns involving soft and hard tissue procedures. It uses a combination of light energy, water, and air to target and treat specific areas. 

With laser endodontics, you don’t have to worry about things like pressure, heat, or vibrations that you typically feel with traditional dental procedures. Instead, it operates smoothly, without noise, and without coming into direct contact with the tooth or the soft gum tissue. In other words, procedures handled with laser endodontics lead to a comfortable dental experience.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Endodontics

Can root canal treatment be done through laser?
Laser endodontics is used in tandem with traditional root canal techniques to remove the infected pulp and disinfect the tooth. This is an effective way to treat ailing teeth successfully – with a decreased risk of recurring infection.
Is laser endodontics less painful?
With traditional endodontics, a local anesthetic is given to remove any discomfort during the procedure. With laser treatment, the anesthetic may not be necessary. At Advanced Endodontics, we always make sure that our patients have a comfortable dental experience.
How does laser treatment reduce the chance of infection?
Lasers sterilize the area they are focused on which allows them to reduce the interaction with bacteria during procedures – and, as a result, reduce the chance of infection.
