You know that you should visit our dentist once every six months if you’re interested in keeping your mouth as healthy and strong as possible. However, what do you do if you’re worried about making that visit? Luckily, there are a few things you can do—especially if it’s the drill that worries you.

You see, laser dentistry is another option that you should consider. In fact, did you know that laser dentistry has been used since the 50s? Still, in the last decade or so, laser dentistry has become much more popular—especially by those who are afraid of visiting the dentist.

Fortunately, laser dentistry can be used in a number of treatments. For example, did you know that our dentist can remove decay from inside a tooth with laser dentistry? While a dentist could use a drill to address decay, the drill would only be able to reach the visible decay. A laser can also be used in teeth whitening, and to cure and set fillings.

Still, lasers are also popular because they offer a number of other benefits. For instance, lasers allow our dentist more precision while minimizing the damage done to the other tissue in your mouth—even resulting in less bleeding. Furthermore, your mouth will heal faster if your treatment was performed with a laser.

If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of laser dentistry, please don’t hesitate to contact our dedicated team in Dripping Springs, Texas, at 512-858-7200. Dr. Heather H. Bobb and our team will gladly answer any questions you have and see if you’re a good candidate. We look forward to hearing from you!
