Dr. Lieberman is proud to offer laser dentistry. He believes visiting the dentist does not have to be a painful and uncomfortable experience. During traditional dental drilling the cause of pain is related to heat, vibration and pressure. Lasers do not produce heat, vibration or pressure, making it nearly pain free.
A lot of people associate a trip to the dentist with the sound of the high-pitched dental drill, but Dr. Lieberman has another tool at his disposal: a dental laser. While not commonly associated with dental treatment, lasers have been used in dentistry since the early 1990’s.
One of the most common uses of dental lasers is as a tool to kill bacteria – the laser is powerful enough to kill bacteria beneath the surface without removing the tissue, this is a way to treat infected or diseased tissue that would otherwise be difficult to reach with normal tools.
The dental laser provides a number of advantages for both patient and dentist – the laser is quieter than the drill, allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed experience. The bacteria-killing nature of the laser and its more precise use can lead to better results and shorter healing times. When used by a trained dentist, the dental laser is a fantastic technical advancement that both patients and dentist can appreciate.
