It eliminates the need for needles and drills using lasers instead to carry out traditional dental treatments and procedures. Lasers emit light energy in a narrow concentrated beam which reacts when it hits hard tissue or soft tissue. Hard tissue lasers can cut teeth while soft tissue lasers are used for the gums. The advantages of undergoing dental treatment with lasers is that there is little or no pain and bleeding, as well as minimal risk of trauma or damage to the surrounding teeth or tissue. Lasers can be used for cavities and tooth decay, it can be used for preventative dental treatment such as scaling and root planing and it can be used in the treatment of periodontal disease.
