Lasers can now be used to treat a number of conditions easily and painlessly. Cold sores, canker sores, sensitive teeth and many other causes of mouth pain can be treated without needles in a matter of minutes. It is even possible to prevent cold sores from breaking out.
Lasers are also helpful during your cleaning. The laser can reduce the number of bacteria around your teeth from millions to hundreds, allowing your gums to heal without the irritation caused by the germs and their toxic byproducts. In some situations the laser can help stimulate the growth of new healthy tissue while also removing diseased gum tissue.
