Dr, Hugh Flax from Flax Dentistry answers a reader’s question about laser dentistry.

Flax, DDS, Hugh_cred Brian Crumb

Q: Is laser dentistry really pain free?

A: Unlike drills, which require patients to have anesthesia, most patients don’t need anesthesia and experience no pain with laser dentistry. In fact, most patients don’t feel anything when having a dental procedure done with a laser. New advancements in laser dentistry, such as the new Solea CO2 laser, mean that lasers are more precise than ever before. The precision of the CO2 laser prevents nerve damage and allows more of the natural tooth to be preserved.
