Compared to the traditional dental drill, lasers:
May cause less pain in some instances, so reduces the need for anesthesia.
May reduce anxiety in patients uncomfortable with the use of the dental drill.
Minimize bleeding and swelling during soft tissue / gum treatments.
May preserve more healthy tooth during cavity removal.
The disadvantages of lasers are that:
Lasers can't be used on teeth with fillings already in place.
Lasers can't be used in many commonly performed dental procedures.
For example, lasers can't be used to fill cavities located between teeth, around old fillings.
Lasers cannot be used to remove defective crowns or silver fillings, or prepare teeth for bridges.
Traditional drills may still be needed to shape the filling, adjust the bite, and polish the filling even when a laser is used.
Lasers do not eliminate the need for anesthesia.
Laser treatment tends to be more expensive.
