The Use of Lasers in Dentistry

The laser is an important device of high tech dentistry. Since the early nineties, lasers have been used in dentistry. In fact, Dr. LaFrom was one of the first dentists in California to use dental lasers  for dentistry and especially in Santa Clara County (First purchased a laser in late 1989). It is indeed an effective and hassle-free way of performing various dental procedures like cavity removal, gum reshaping, teeth whitening, hardening bonding materials and to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets. 

Dr. LaFrom, one of the most popular dentists in the Cupertino area, says that the effectiveness of laser dentistry depends on the dentist’s ability to control power output and the duration of exposure on the tissue. It allows for a highly precise treatment without causing damage to the surrounding tissues. The laser treatment also reduces the pain and the recovery time. Some of the other benefits of using laser would be that some of the laser procedures do not require anesthesia and minimizes the bleeding as well as there are chances of getting a bacterial infection. Laser treatment is also a very effective way of dealing with teeth that are sensitive. 

There are various types of dental lasers that are gradually becoming popular among the dentists. These include the laser tools like the Waterlase system, and the POWERLASE byLARES, which are used for the removal of tooth decay and damaged gums, plus we have lasers for teeth bleaching teeth. Dr. LaFrom also uses a special laser that can be used to cure composites, and a new laser called the DIAGNODENT, which helps to detect the intensity of decay.

Kurt, an elated patient, makes it a point to say “You are the best quality Dental Experts and the best people and personalities of any office facility. I really enjoy coming to the Dentist and to see you guys. I could not be happier.”
