Do you try to stay away from your dentist for as long as possible? Does the idea of the drill whirring fill you with dread? If so, would you be interested in learning about another option? You might want to consider laser dentistry for your future dental needs.

As you can probably guess, laser dentistry relies on a focused, intense beam of light being shined in your mouth. This technology can help with infected gum tissue and can help children who suffer from incorrect muscle attachment in the jaw. This attachment can hinder speech in young children. Laser dentistry can also remove jaw inflammation and helping with TMJ, fighting tumors, and even helping with whitening treatments—and many of these treatments require less healing time than they would otherwise.

This option is especially useful for those who suffer from dental anxiety because it is minimally invasive and the laser can replace the drill in some instances. Similarly, laser treatment heals faster, doesn’t require stitches, reduces bleeding in your mouth, and generally has less painful recovery.

If you are interested in these benefits, please don’t hesitate to contact Legacy Smiles Family Dental at 208-888-3311 . Dr. John McMurray will examine your mouth and see if you are a good candidate and talk about your options with you. We are excited to hear from you!
