Do you recollect the facial expression of your child upon hearing the dreadful sound of the drill in a dental clinic? Did he wish to run out of the dental procedure room? In fact, were you not equally petrified of the sharp dentistry tools that you mentally pictured, piercing through your gums and teeth even before your treatment actually began?
Now there is no need for you to fear, as the new dental laser technology is here. With the traditional methods it was really difficult and uncomfortable for the patients to sit for long hours with their mouth wide open while the dentist drilled inside their mouth. Fortunately, new Laser Dentistry techniques have been introduced because of which the accuracy has jumped leaps. The pain is negligible while the healing is really fast. The most acclaimed difference between the traditional and laser dentistry is the drilling method vs. the high-energy beam laser.
People treated with drilling method are known to face a lot more pain and discomfort than those treated with laser dentistry that had more accurate results. In traditional dentistry procedures local anaesthesia is used and the drilling metal keeps drilling against the tooth which is surrounded by very sensitive soft tissues. The vibration caused by drilling affects the surrounding region. Also, after the local anaesthesia fades away, most patients experience unbearable pain in the region that was operated upon. On the other hand, lasers are simpler. Laser dentistry involves no drilling that would cause discomforting vibrations. It is far more accurate and does not affect the local region of action. It is a fact that there is least amount of blood loss during the use of Lasers in Dentistry. The patient recovery time is much less and one can get back to work or daily life chores more quickly?
Laser treatment is cheaper than the traditional dental treatment. One may argue, how? It is because fewer dental sittings are required so the dentist has to invest lesser time. The accuracy and less painful procedures also contribute to this cost cutting, which is unimaginable with traditional dentistry.
