A majority of patients are normally anxious before consulting with a dentist. Laser treatments provide less stress, particularly for children ,and allow better coordination of treatment planning and follow-up.
In many cases, the drill can be eliminated altogether thus reducing disagreable side effects( noise, vibrations and pressure.) Anaesthesia becomes unnecessary for many procedures, hence, less fear of needles. Soft tissues are less inflamed and swelling is reduced, thus eliminating undesired side-effects of classical dental treatments.
The newest generation of lasers also provides relief for sensitive teeth.
The practitioner as well as the patient need no longer wait for the anaesthesia to take effect, thus enhancing the use of time for multiple treatments and eliminating unnecessary extra appointments.
Laser permits the practitioner to propose otherwise unavailable treatments such as periodontal , esthetic and microdentistry
