Lasers in dentistry allow the dental team to work without the use of anesthetics. With a dental laser there is no bleeding, no pain and no swelling. The laser uses a beam of high intensity light and can take the place of a “drill” (and associated injections) and enables the team to work in a “pain-free” environment. This results in quicker dental procedures with less post operative discomfort and quicker healing.
Dr. Bhandari uses laser dentistry for soft tissues.
Lasers, in the hands of a skilled professional, are very safe for adults and children. Safety glasses are the primary safety gear required.
There are many options when it comes to lasers in dentistry with the technology continuing to advance at a quick pace.
