Laser Dentistry Myths – Debunked!  

MYTH #1: “Most laser treatments use anesthesia.”  

Research shows that approximately 95% of dental laser procedures can be performed without anesthesia. However, patients who request anesthesia usually struggle with dental anxiety.    Thanks to the advancements in modern dentistry, dentists can now optimize the laser beam for various procedures. Moreover, the latest equipment is ideal for faster cutting at computerized controls and low settings.  

MYTH #2: “Dental lasers aren’t as effective as the traditional drill.”  

Contrary to some people’s belief, dental lasers can cut through dense oral tissue the way traditional tools do. Most patients claim that laser dentistry produces better results than the conventional drill. What’s more, dental laser devices make procedures such as tooth decay and enamel removal to install fillings and veneers as quick and painless as possible.  

MYTH #3: “Laser dentistry isn’t safe.”  

Dental lasers aren’t anything like the ones you see in a Star Wars movie because the beams of light aren’t shooting from blasters and lightsabers that get out of control. The dental professionals who use them to treat patients were extensively trained to handle the equipment without compromising their safety.   

MYTH #4: “You’ll be exposed to cancer-causing radiation.”  

Did you know that sunlight is even more harmful than any treatment involving laser dentistry? Since dental lasers use amplified light rather than harmful ionizing radiation, they generally interact with the human body the way ordinary light does. Moreover, modern laser devices eliminate the risk of burn by using selective photo-thermolysis technology.    Woman Gets Laser Dentistry Palm Beach Gardens
