As you probably know, many people tend to think of going to the dentist as a chore that needs to be done. Often, this is because many people find the dentist uncomfortable—especially when they hear the whirring of the drill. Our dentist, Dr. David Wilhelm, can perform your dental treatments with higher accuracy than before when using BIOLASE laser dentistry instead of a drill. This advanced tool allows our dentist to remove damaged tissues from your mouth with greater comfort for you.
Fortunately, laser dentistry can be used in a number of treatments. For example, did you know that our dentist can remove decay from inside a tooth with laser dentistry? While a dentist could use a drill to address decay, the drill would only be able to reach the visible decay. A laser can also be used in teeth whitening, and to cure and set fillings.
Still, lasers are also popular because they offer a number of other benefits. For instance, lasers allow our dentist more precision while minimizing damage to the other tissue in your mouth—even resulting in less bleeding. Furthermore, your mouth will likely heal faster if your treatment was performed with a laser.
