BIOLASE® laser dentistry for more precise, comfortable dental care in Newport Beach, CA
Dental technologies have rapidly advanced in the last decade, and laser dentistry ranks among the top ways that technology has truly transformed the way we are able to deliver dental care. At Newport Dental Arts in Newport Beach, CA, we are equipped with the BIOLASE® laser dentistry,which enables us to treat a wide variety of dental conditions with greater precision, fewer side effects, and enhanced comfort.
What is BIOLASE and how does it work?
BIOLASE is a laser dental system that uses a focused beam of light energy to perform many different dental procedures that would typically require traditional dental tools such as scalpels and drills. Lasers have been increasingly used in both medical and dental fields because of their many benefits for both patients and providers:
- Precision: Equipped with the BIOLASE laser, our dentists can make more precise cuts and alter less healthy tissue when performing procedures compared to what scalpels and drills allow
- Comfort: Patients find laser dentistry procedures to be less painful than traditional methods, and in many cases, anesthesia is not even necessary
- Rapid recovery: The laser both sterilizes and cauterizes the area as it treats, which means there is less bleeding during and after the procedure, a reduced chance of infection post-treatment, and often no need for sutures
- Versatility: BIOLASE can be used to treat a wide array of dental issues and in many different types of procedures
