Laser Dentistry

34Laser dentistry is cutting edge technology utilizing lasers to treat a wide range of dental issues. This is important, because a dental laser can replace the more traditional instruments, such as the drill, with a higher accuracy rate.

Some additional benefits of a dental laser includes a reduction in symptoms, quicker healing, a reduction in bacteria found in gum tissue and cavities, and minimized bleeding during surgical treatments. You also may be able to avoid stitches. Best of all, with certain procedures, no anesthesia is required at all.

Laser Dentistry Services

Cavity Detection | Scanning your teeth with a laser allows for tooth decay to be identified more accurately than with the use of a traditional dental instrument, such as a pic.
Fillings | Lasers can be used in place of a turbine dental drill and the need for anesthesia. They can kill the bacteria in a cavity and prepare a tooth for dental fillings.
Crown Lengthening | A soft tissue laser can reshape gums, while a hard tissue laser can reshape bone, preparing a foundation for the placement of restorations.
Canker and Cold Sores | Reduce the discomfort and accelerate the healing of canker and cold sores.
Biopsy | Dental lasers can be used to perform biopsy procedures.
Benign Tumors | Remove benign tumors from soft tissue, such as gums and palate, without the need for sutures.
TMJ/TMD Treatment | Reduce inflammation and discomfort associated with TMJ/TMD.
