The joy of Lasers in Dentistry in Kingston-upon-Thames

There was a time in Kingston-upon-Thames when all the dentist could offer you when it came to complex procedures, was a good slicing with a scalpel and a good drilling followed by some hefty stitching afterwards and though this equipment got the job done, the trauma that was left meant some pretty hefty recovery times after the operations. But it worked, albeit a tad draconian. However, take all of these brilliant treatments and lay it at the feet of a laser and it’s like the HMS Victory doctor meeting a counterpart from the USS Enterprise. The laser has been the miracle of the century and has hopefully resigned drills and scalpels to the history books. It does such little damage to tissue when it cuts and so the wound heals fast, which is why it is great for gum contouring and the placing of dental implants. It can wipe away decay in the teeth painlessly and within a couple of minutes, but it can also be used for teeth whitening as well. It is becoming more prominent in dental surgeries, which is only good for the patient, because it has made the basic to the most complex treatments, a precise art-form.
