Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry in Brownsville, TX

While dental lasers have been around since the 90’s, they have certainly come a long way since then. Who knew that lasers would  end up becoming such an easy way for dentists to perform many traditional dental procedures more safely, less invasively and often with fewer side effects? At Ancira Family Dental we have seen these benefits and become experts in a branch of restorative dentistry called laser dentistry. Painless, fast and accomplished with no anesthesia, laser dentistry precisely treats hard and soft tissue dental issues. You can take advantage of these benefits the next time you visit our office!

How are Dental Lasers used?

This is a great question! Perhaps you’ve already had a dental procedure done using lasers and you didn’t even realize it. Lasers can be used for a host of different dental treatments including:

  • Reshaping uneven gum lines
  • Treating infected gums (due to periodontitis or tooth abscess)
  • Treating decayed enamel and dentin, the inner layer of a tooth's structure
  • Fixing small cosmetic issues such as pitted enamel
  • Performing biopsies
  • Hardening dental resin (for dental bonding, fillings, and veneers)
  • Treating root canal infections
  • Reducing canker sore and cold sore pain
  • Addressing multiple problems, such as several small cavities, in one visit

What are the Benefits Associated with Laser Dentistry?

You’ll enjoy a multitude of advantages when we use laser dentistry over traditional methods. In fact, sometimes the laser is able to completely eliminate the need for a drill or even anesthesia. For many of our patients, not needing to get needles prior to treatment is a major plus. Lasers are also more gentle than traditional dental equipment. The lack of the dental drill, and its noise and vibration, as well as the lack of anesthesia, injections and their side effects such as a numb face or "fat" lip means that many patients much prefer laser dentistry for the convenience and comfort it provides.

Lasers are also very precise instruments, more so than regular manual instruments. This means it can target and treat problem areas more accurately and efficiently. And just in case this wasn’t enough, laser dentistry can also reduce your recovery time. That’s right! Since laser dentistry is more precise it can reduce the chances of post-procedural bleeding and discomfort and improve your healing time.

Dental lasers are also completely safe when used by one of our trained medical staff. Before you receive laser dentistry we will provide you with protective eyewear to wear during your treatment (just as you would wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun while outside). Afterwards, most patients are able to resume their normal activities, such as school and work, right away with no restrictions on what they eat and drink.
