Your Dentist Discusses Laser Dentistry in Hesperia CA
What is laser dentistry?
The first step to a better smile begins with the proper equipment, and at Family Specialty Dentistry, we only use the best. As part of this commitment, we specialize in laser dentistry. Laser dentistry in Hesperia CA is the utilization of high-tech dental lasers to remove tooth decay, treat periodontal disease, whiten teeth, and remove diseased tissue. Laser dentistry is also used as a treatment for sensitive teeth; we can desensitize teeth in a revolutionary way, sealing the roots of teeth. There are three highly specialized lasers: the WaterLase, a diode laser, and the DIAGNOdent.
What is a WaterLase laser?
WaterLase is a patented water laser from Biolase. It is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. WaterLase combines laser energy with water and air to cut through teeth and gum tissue. There are many benefits to using WaterLase; it is virtually painless, reduces bleeding and pain after dental surgery, and increases accuracy and precision.
What is a diode laser?
A diode laser uses heat generated from the energy of the laser to gently cut through soft tissues and dental decay. This is used as a part of dental hygiene treatments to remove plaque and tartar and during periodontal treatments. Diode lasers are also used to whiten teeth by activating a bleaching gel that absorbs into teeth to break down deep-rooted stains.
What is the DIAGNOdent?
The DIAGNOdent is one of the premier diagnostic tools in laser dentistry. With the DIAGNOdent laser, dentists are able to detect and target even the smallest areas of tooth decay. It is especially useful in finding cavities and decay on the tooth’s biting surface, an area where X-rays have a harder time detecting decay.
