LASER stands for “light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation.” The instrument creates light energy in a very narrow and focused beam. This laser light produces a reaction when it hits tissue allowing it to remove or shape the tissue. Laser dentistry is used in a variety of procedures. Lasers can make dental treatments more efficient, cost effective, and comfortable. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved laser dentistry as a treatment option for several dental conditions. It’s worth noting that the American Dental Association (ADA) currently has yet to do so, though they are hopeful about the potential of the field.Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive option (No cut- No bleed- No stitch- No Fear) where an extremely focused light beam is used to alter/ remove tissue in small amounts.
Laser treatments such as these generally aren’t more expensive than traditional treatments and are often comparable in price. In fact, they can often be less expensive because the treatment is usually completed in fewer sessions. Additionally, dental insurance usually determines their reimbursement costs based on the treatment itself and not on what method is used.
