How Is Laser Dentistry Good for Your Smile?

May 19, 2022 7:11 pm

If you don’t frequent the dental office often, besides for your routine cleaning and exam, you may not be up to date with the latest dental technology.

Dr. Orme and our team are always looking for new and improved ways to provide you and other patients with the best dental care possible to help you achieve a long-lasting smile. One of these new ways involves lasers for dental treatments!

Laser Dentistry

Though laser dentistry has been safe for public usage since 1990, recent advancements have modernized the process, making laser dentistry enhanced to handle more issues than before.

As in the name, laser dentistry uses a laser during dental treatments. Since a laser eliminates more heat than traditional practices and pressure or vibrations, your dental experience may not require anesthesia, and treatments are likely to be more precise!

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

While precision and the option for less invasive treatment are great benefits, laser dentistry also offers:

  • Faster Recovery Time
  • Minimal Post-Op Bleeding
  • Minimal Bacterial Infection
  • Reduced Chance of Infection
  • Reduced Need for Stitches

Laser Dentistry Procedures

Laser dentistry is helpful for an abundance of procedures. Different dental lasers can be used to reshape gum tissue, reshape the jawbone, improve teeth whitening procedures, repair worn fillings, and treat cavities.

Laser dentistry procedures can take less time than traditional procedures and may provide patients with a more pleasant dental experience. If you are interested in laser dentistry for one of the qualifying procedures, Dr. Orme can evaluate your oral health and determine whether or not it’s a good fit for you.

"This was the best experience with a dentist I've ever had. I had an implant done and was expecting a lot of pain. I had no pain at all. It was so refreshing to have a dentist who cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Orme and his staff at Southwest Dental Care."

- Sheryl B.

"I'm the kind of person who likes a real explanation of what's happening, even if I don't really understand half of it. Dr. Orme went the extra mile to explain everything in a casual and personable way without "dumbing it down". The office space is modern and fresh, and the staff is welcoming and characterful."

- John D.

"I worked with Dr. Orme in the Dominican Republic recently on a humanitarian trip. I watched him work hard every day at making the people feel good, creating an experience, as well as teaching those around him. He makes patients and co-workers feel good. He's positive, very upbeat, and I would recommend him strongly!!"

- Spencer C.

"He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He listens and only does what you want done without pressure. Very informative without the lecture. Dr. Orme and his staff are very friendly."
