Dr. Heather H. Bobb is pleased to utilize laser dentistry in Dripping Springs, Texas, for your convenience and benefit.

Dental lasers are generally used to remove tooth decay, treat gum disease, remove lesions, and whiten teeth. This is a great tool that reduces anxiety in patients because they are afraid of the dental drill. With this instrument, energy will be projected in the form of a light, and it will gently treat the area that it is directed toward. It is a very beneficial product because it:

• Causes less pain compared to traditional dental tools
• Helps patients feel more comfortable in the dental chair
• Reduces bleeding and swelling
• Preserves as many healthy sections of your mouth as possible

Throughout the treatment, the laser acts as a cutting instrument, and it also sterilizes the areas it is working on. This reduces the risks of infection and also gives your dentist the comfort she needs while performing the dental treatment.

If you would like to learn more about why dental laser use is beneficial, please feel free to give us a call and talk to a member of our team! We are happy to teach you and answer any questions you have.
