State-of-the-Art Lasers Increase Effectiveness
When lasers were first introduced into dentistry, dentists like Dr. Michael Childers realized that they could be useful to achieve several objectives:
- Patient comfortSince lasers operate at lightning-fast speeds and do not produce heat, they are preferred by patients. This includes patients who are highly sensitive or have dental anxiety.
- Treatment resultsThe results of procedures performed with the help of a laser are extremely effective because lasers add an unseen level of accuracy and precision.
- Faster healing timeTissues that are treated using a laser heal more quickly because they experience less trauma. In some cases, the results of laser surgeries are immediate and have very little swelling or discoloration.
A Unique Level of Comfort
Traditionally, dental procedures like frenectomies, gingivectomies and teeth whitening were accomplished using metal instruments and invasive techniques. While those tools offered satisfactory results, they were not as effective, precise or comfortable as laser alternatives.
Today, lasers are considered the gold standard of care in dentistry. During his 30 years as a dentist, Dr. Childers has consistently looked for opportunities to advance his training and certifications in the use of laser equipment and laser-led procedures.
