SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 24, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- San Francisco dentist Dr. Ben Amini explains how lasers are being applied in dental procedures. The use of lasers in dental practices has expanded significantly in recent years, and the technology is now used in cosmetic, restorative, and other procedures dealing with both soft and hard tissues. Compared to conventional tools, lasers offer several notable benefits, including improved treatment accuracy, reduced pain, and faster healing afterwards. CitiDent, the office of Dr. Amini, uses Biolase Waterlase iPlus lasers in a long list of applications for patients who want the superior results this technology offers in the hands of trained professionals.
The number of procedures that utilize lasers today is impressive. For restoration of decayed teeth, lasers can be used to eliminate damaged tissue comfortably before a filling is placed. Soft-tissue applications for lasers include suspected cancer biopsies or benign growths, gum reshaping, cold sore treatment, and canker sores which lasers can help eliminate or expedite healing within days. Lasers can also be used to treat pain in cases of temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ disorder. Dental lasers are effective at bio-stimulation, which involves speeding the healing process through multiple natural pathways. Finally lasers can be used to whiten teeth a lot more efficiently with better results.
A complete range of dental treatments in several specialties are offered at CitiDent. General dentistry, including check up and teeth cleaning, is available alongside restorative care services, which includes fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns. CitiDent also provides periodontics for treatment of gum disease and endodontics, including root canal therapy, for infected teeth.

The practice also offers a full selection of orthodontics, including Invisalign, as well as dental implants and other tooth replacements. Same-day versions of some restorations are available to qualifying patients.
