Scared Of The Dentist? Laser Dentistry Will Change Your Mind
Does the thought of dental treatment make your stomach do an uncomfortable flip? You’re not alone: thousands of adults struggle with some level of dental anxiety. But you don’t have to just put up with the fear and nerves. At Sharon Dental, we want every one of our patients to feel comfortable in the office, and we’ve taken strides to help make that possible. With Laser Dentistry, we’re able to provide soothing, effective treatment that is less stressful and more comfortable than you expect.
Laser Dentistry Soothes Dental Anxiety and Fear
Did you know that for many patients, dental anxiety stems from negative past experiences? You may be incredibly nervous about the prospect of pain; have a fear of injections or despise the drill; or simply feel uncomfortable with standard dental tools and sensations.
Dental lasers help patients overcome their dental anxiety and fear. By reducing the need for anesthesia (and thus, shots), taking away some stressful sights and sounds, and performing incredibly precise work, dental lasers make the entire treatment experience more pleasant. Many patients who haven’t been able to pursue dental treatment out of fear find that a laser procedure changes the way they feel about dentistry in general.
Laser Dentistry And Your Next Dental Treatment
Sharon Dental is proud to offer patients treatment with our soft tissue laser. It’s appropriate for a wide range of treatments, as the laser is incredibly versatile. A few of its most common uses include
- Frenectomy – Some patients have bands of tissue in their mouths that restrict muscle movement. A frenectomy performed with a laser will show minimal bleeding and quick recovery time.
- Growth removal – Benign tissue growths can be uncomfortable, and patients typically want to remove their fibromas and canker sores. Lasers make this possible with a simple, fast procedure.
- Gum contouring – Reshaping the gums can be a cosmetic necessity, in order to expose more of the tooth or to make the gum line symmetrical. Contouring also corrects gummy smiles.
If you’ve been overcome by dental anxiety or fear in the past, at Sharon Dental, we would love to introduce you to laser dentistry. Simply contact us to schedule an appointment, or to learn more about laser technology.
