How does electrosurgery help in general restorative dentistry?

Primarily through its ability to control bleeding, for example, in operculectomy, in exposing a sub-gingival carie, or reducing inter-proximal granulation tissue. The ability to pressurelessly lance abscesses or fistulous tracts, the ability to plane or reshape edentulous tissue for prosthetic patients, and the ability to accelerate spot bleaching and desensitizing treatments are advantages as well. Of course, the ability to sculpt tissue for aesthetic crown lengthening alone or in conjunction with veneer placement are valuable enhancements for today’s general restorative practice.
