Laser dentistry: what are the benefits for patients? | Washington, DC

Are you ready to experience a dental procedure performed without a drill, a scalpel or a needle!

Laser dentistry enables Dr. Andrew Cobb, a cosmetic and general dentist in Washington, DC, to treat patients for a variety of dental problems with less pain, less bleeding, fewer side effects and a faster recovery. Dr. Cobb uses a state of the art dental lasers that enables him to more accurately treat the soft tissues of the mouth, such as gum tissue, without a metal scalpel.

The dental laser allows Dr. Cobb to create accurate incisions with minimized bleeding and swelling: the heat and energy created by the dental laser can both numb the treated area and coagulate blood quickly to reduce bleeding and swelling. For patients, this can mean less pain and a speedier recovery: in many cases there is no need for anesthetics at all! Laser dentistry can effectively be used for treating gum disease, placing dental implants and other dental procedures that would traditionally require a surgical incision. The use of laser dentistry reduces or eliminates the need for using sutures- which frequently require a return trip to the dentist for removal.

For patients who suffer from dental anxiety, the use of laser dentistry can provide a much more predictable experience with less noise and discomfort during treatment. If you have been avoiding the dentist due to feeling anxious about possible treatment, Dr. Cobb can discuss how laser dentistry may enhance your dental treatment and allow you to feel relaxed and comfortable.

Dental technology continues to offer patients a better experience with more accurate results and fewer side effects. Dr. Cobb, a nationally recognized cosmetic dentist, uses some of the latest dental technologies in his Washington dental office, enabling him to perform many cosmetic and restorative dental procedures more effectively with better outcomes and less pain!
