Laser dentistry is the practice of using laser technology to provide dental treatment. Laser dentistry is minimally invasive, allowing your dentist to perform procedures with minimal trauma to surrounding tissues. Laser dentistry also promotes faster healing times.
The Fotona laser we utilize in our practice uses a patented Er:YAG laser that can specifically target soft tissues. Because of this, there is minimal bleeding and swelling. This laser is also able to reach the pulp of the tooth, which can mean less pain and fewer shots. The laser also disinfects the cavity, which reduces the risk of further infection.
What are the benefits of Fotona laser dentistry?
Fotona’s laser dentistry has specific benefits, such as:
- Pain-free treatment
- Less bleeding during procedures
- Reduced swelling
- Minimal recovery time
The laser specifically targets the infected tissue without affecting the healthy surrounding tissue. Fotona lasers are an excellent option for patients who experience anxiety related to dental visits, as lasers eliminate the need for needles and other numbing agents.
Are Fotona Laser Treatments Expensive?
The Fotona laser is more expensive than comparable dental lasers, but when considering its many benefits, the price difference becomes negligible. The laser can be used to treat a wide variety of dental problems, including cavities, gum disease, tooth sensitivity, dental injuries, and dental lesions.
Is Fotona Laser Covered by Insurance?
Yes! Many insurance companies cover laser treatments. If you want to get a dental procedure done, you can contact our practice and find out if the procedure is covered by insurance.
