Have you heard about laser dentistry? Have you ever wondered why some dental offices rely on laser dentistry or what benefits you might enjoy if you choose to rely on laser dentistry? If you’re interested in learning more about this exciting new technology, please read on!

As you can probably guess, laser dentistry relies on a focused, intense beam of light being shined in your mouth. This technology can help with infected gum tissue and can help children who suffer from incorrect muscle attachment in the jaw. This attachment can hinder speech in young children. Laser dentistry can also remove jaw inflammation helping with TMJ, fight tumors, and even help with whitening treatments—and many of these treatments require less healing time than they would otherwise.

This option is especially useful for those who suffer from dental anxiety because it is minimally invasive and the laser can replace the drill in some instances. Similarly, laser treatment heals faster, doesn’t require stitches, reduces bleeding in your mouth, and generally has less painful recovery.

If you are interested in these benefits, please don’t hesitate to contact Apple Family Dental at 360-423-5580. Dr. Julia Gourley will examine your mouth and see if you are a good candidate and talk about your options with you. We’re excited to hear from you.
