Pros and Cons of Laser Dentistry

Pros and Cons of Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is a technology that has made dental treatments easy for both dentists and patients. A laser is a small penlike device that emits light through an optical amplification process. It is used for various dental procedures like cavity detection, crown lengthening, nerve regeneration and tooth preparations. Laser aids in the long-term health of the patient's tooth and enables tissue regrowth. 

At Arden Dental Center, we provide laser treatments to patients who prefer accurate and less painful dental procedures. The patient can choose between traditional dental treatments and laser treatment after considering various factors like comfort and cost.
