The laser is a revolutionary surgical tool that has been used in dentistry for over 25 years for various procedures. The safety and control that lasers provide allow dentists to perform precise procedures without worrying about damaging the tissue in your mouth. Lasers also seal off blood vessels and nerve endings and prevent bleeding inside the mouth, greatly reducing postoperative pain and swelling.
