Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches). Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia.
Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss. Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on. Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized. Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
