How Lasers Are Changing Your Dental Visit

At McNeely Family Dentistry, we strive to make our patients’ experience one of comfort, convenience, and ease. We know that many people have anxiety about dental appointments because of sensitive gums or teeth. Fear of painful procedures may keep some from getting the necessary care they need. For this reason, we are always working on finding new and improved ways to treat our patients. We’ve been very successful at enhancing beautiful smiles while cutting back on time and discomfort.

One of the technologies we employ to do this is using laser treatments during a variety of services. Lasers may sound like a thing of the future, but this innovation has been trusted for years. Soft tissue laser treatment was approved for use by the FDA in 1990 and has changed dentistry for the better, eliminating pain and helping patients feel at ease. Here are just a few reasons you’ll appreciate this cutting-edge technology.

  • With soft-tissue laser technology, there is no need for scalpels or sutures.
  • Healing time is faster and less painful.
  • The procedure is minimally invasive.
  • We can use this tool for a variety of treatments, including root canal therapy and gum surgery.

If you have yet to experience soft tissue laser technology during a dental treatment, we know you’ll be surprised and relieved to find that it improves your experience in our office and speeds healing time at home. For our anxious patients, we’d love to answer any questions you may have about this safe and effective process.

If you’re in need of a dental procedure, please know you’re in good hands with us. Contact us today to schedule a consultation if you’re in need of a service. We’ll walk you through each treatment so you know what to expect. Rest assured, lasers are safe, effective, and will help you feel at ease.
