OWINGS MILLS, MI, February 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Herbert Mendelson, Owings Mills dentist, has pioneered numerous techniques, and introduced lasers into the field of implant dentistry. In many cases, lasers have helped to virtually eliminate swelling and discomfort for patients. By utilizing lasers, Dr. Mendelson not only provides his patients with a kinder and gentler experience, but he also improves the accuracy and predictability of the procedures.
With the confirmation of scientific studies, lasers may be a good alternative to the traditional dental drill as anesthetic is not needed as often. The procedure is more precise and can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies. Lasers are often used for ulcer excision, gum therapy, cavity preparation and removal of decay. In the future, laser technology may be used to prevent decay by increasing the strength of the tooth. However, laser therapy cannot be used as an alternative for every procedure.
"The availability of lasers in dentistry allows us to improve the treatment options available for our patients so that we can continue to provide the best care possible. Lasers can be used for surgical procedures, while other forms of lasers are used to cure or finalize restorative materials, enhance tooth bleaching, and others to remove tooth structure for elimination of disease and restoration," said Dr. Herbert Mendelson, dentist in Owings Mills, MD.
Laser dentistry in Owings Mills can be used to enhance the effectiveness of in-office peroxide bleaching agents. Unlike conventional dental instruments, lasers are whisper quiet. Patients may experience the sound of a rush of air, since air suction is often used to keep the area cool and clean. Additionally, patients should be able to easily relax and find comfort while the dental laser is in use. Laser surgery also allows Dr. Herbert Mendelson to use less anesthesia during treatments. With Owings Mills laser dentistry there is also significantly lower loss of blood, swelling, and postoperative discomfort.
