The Benefits of Lasers in Dental Care

Imperial Dental Center recently added a soft tissue laser to our practice.

Going to the dentist for procedures can be a source of anxiety for many patients. There is concern about the process and discomfort. However, dental technology has come a long way, and at Imperial Dental Center, our priority is to provide patients with the best possible dental care using the latest technologies available. That’s why we’ve recently added the STERLING® Pen Soft Tissue Laser to our practice, enhancing dental treatments with more precise, efficient, and comfortable care.

The Benefits of Laser in Dental Care
Laser dental treatments are used during patient procedures for their many benefits, including a more comfortable experience and shortened procedure and healing time.

  1. Minimized Discomfort: Laser treatments often minimize discomfort during and after procedures. They usually require less anesthesia, reducing the need for needles and making the experience more pleasant.
  2. Reduced Bleeding and Swelling: Dentists use lasers to clot the blood vessels and minimize bleeding during procedures. This also helps reduce swelling and promotes faster healing, leading to a quicker recovery time.
  3. Precision and Control: Lasers allow for more precise control, enabling dentists to target specific areas without affecting the surrounding tissues, particularly beneficial for delicate procedures.
  4. Lower Risk of Infection: The high-energy beam of a laser sterilizes the area being treated, reducing the risk of bacterial infections.
  5. Efficiency and Convenience: Laser treatments can often be completed in a shorter time than traditional methods. Patients can sometimes have multiple procedures done in one visit, saving time and reducing the number of appointments needed.
  6. Less Invasive: Lasers can perform specific procedures without incisions or sutures, making them less invasive and reducing post-operative discomfort.
  7. Enhanced Healing: The laser’s ability to promote clotting and tissue regeneration helps in faster and better healing, improving overall patient outcomes.

Using laser technology in patient treatment offers numerous advantages, so we chose the STERLING® Laser for our practice.

The Soft Tissue Dental Laser
At Imperial Dental Center, we continuously invest in new technology to provide the highest quality dental care. Adding a soft tissue laser to our practice is based on our goal to offer patients the most advanced and effective treatments available, ensuring their dental health and satisfaction. Dr. Angelova and our dental hygiene team at Imperial Dental Center have received specialized training and certification in using lasers to treat gum disease.

Soft tissue lasers are a modern tool used in dental offices to treat gum disease effectively and comfortably. These lasers target and remove infected gum tissue without harming the healthy areas, reducing pain and speeding up healing. They also help kill bacteria, promoting faster recovery and better results. Patients often experience less bleeding and swelling compared to traditional methods, making the whole treatment process smoother and more pleasant. Soft tissue lasers are a fantastic option for managing gum disease, offering a quicker, less invasive, and more efficient solution.

The STERLING® Pen Laser is a small, easy-to-use tool that can be moved around the mouth easily. It enables the dentist to perform many different dental procedures with great accuracy, perform precise tissue work, stop bleeding quickly, and speed up the healing process.
