Amazing Laser Dentistry Discovery – Dallas
We hear about some of the more popular medical advancements on the news, or we read about them online or in the newspaper. What we don’t often hear about are the absolutely amazing discoveries that are being made in dental science. Sound boring? Laser dentistry could end the need for wisdom tooth extraction. If you’ve had your third molars removed, you know that the procedure is fairly invasive and can have a few days’ recovery time.
Scientists are learning that we may be able to zap wisdom teeth with a dental laser before they develop. Experiments on puppies and baby rats have been promising. Laser treatment actually prevented teeth from developing.
I’m Dr. Brock Lynn, and as a Dallas laser dentist, I’m excited about dental science. We’ve seen amazing developments in the past decade, many of which I use in my office today. For instance, instead of relying on a dental drill to prepare teeth for restorations, I use a dental laser. There’s no vibration, heat, or sound – the three primary sources of patient discomfort. In some cases, a laser can eliminate the need for dental anesthetic. I also use a dental laser to reshape gum tissue, so invasive gum surgery isn’t necessary. Dental lasers have improved dentistry by leaps and bounds, and the trend is continuing. It’s all very exciting!
