The use of lasers in dentistry possesses several advantages over the pneumatic dental drill. Aside from being able to replace the traditional drill in some cases and helping to reduce patient anxiety by eliminating its annoying sound, laser dentistry offers other tangible benefits. Safe and effective, laser dentistry is generally less painful for patients and requires no or less local anesthesia and sedation dentistry. Additionally, any discomfort following a procedure is minimized and healing times tend to be shorter with laser dentistry than with older traditional methods. Dr. Walbom uses a Sirona diode laser to achieve effective, pain-free results for his patients. With laser dentistry, patients can expect greater comfort and less time spent in the dentist’s chair.
