Laser Dentistry in Nashville

laser dentistry NashvilleNashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry – Dr. Dennis Wells currently offers laser dentistry for some cosmetic procedures. Lasers have been used by dentists for decades to treat a number of issues. Although FDA approved, laser systems have not received the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance as an alternative treatment. The ADA seal ensures to dentists that a laser device meets their standards of safety efficiency. The ADA, however, states that it is cautiously optimistic. Still, many dentists are using lasers to treat:
  • Can be used to remove decay within a tooth and prep surrounding enamel for placing of a filling.
  • They are used to reshape gums and remove bacteria during root canal procedures.
  • They can be used to extract a biopsy for testing, and to remove lesions in the mouth.
  • Lasers are obviously great for in-office teeth whitening procedures. Peroxide bleaching solution can be activated and enhanced by laser energy, speeding up the process.
How Do Lasers Work in Dentistry? All dental lasers deliver energy via light waves. They can act as a cutting instrument or vaporize tissue. And when used for teeth-whitening they act as a heat source to enhance the effect of bleaching agents. What Are the Pros and Cons? Pros Dental lasers:
  • May cause less pain so less need for anesthesia
  • Can reduce anxiety in patients who do not like drills
  • They can help minimize bleeding in soft tissue operations
  • They can help preserve healthy teeth during cavity removal
Cons Disadvantages are:
  • Cannot be used on teeth with existing fillings.
  • Cannot be used in many commonly performed dental procedures including some cavities, old fillings, or preparation for a crown.
  • Standard drills may still be needed to shape fillings, adjust, and polish teeth.
  • Lasers do not completely eliminate the need for anesthesia.
  • Laser treatment tends to be more expensive, and the cost of the laser can be much higher than a dental drill.
