Laser dentistry 'ideal for nervous patients'

Cosmetic dentistry
A growing number of consumers are benefitting from laser dentistry, but many still do not know much about the techniques involved, it has been claimed.

Rahul Doshi and Ashish Parmar offer laser dentistry at their private dental clinic, the Perfect Smile Studios & Academy.

The treatment involves a beam of concentrated light which can be used to accurately remove areas of infection or tooth decay.

Mr Doshi revealed: "Laser dental patients tend to be much more comfortable during and indeed after treatment.

"This is ideal for nervous patients as it reduces the need for dentist drills, injections and discomfort."

One of the main advantages of laser dentistry is that it reduces treatment times - something that nervous patients claim is a "huge help", Mr Doshi added.

It can be used for a range of purposes, including the removal of dental caries, sterilisation of infected root canals and gum treatment.

As well as laser dentistry, the Perfect Smile Studios & Academy also offer sedation treatment for nervous patients, which can be administered orally or intravenously to make dental treatment a more relaxing experience.
