Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry might seem new, but dentists have used lasers for about 30 years. Today, it's a go-to for various treatments, showing how it has improved over the years to make dental care more comfortable and effective.

What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is a dental practice that utilizes lasers (focused beams of light) to treat various dental conditions. The laser serves as a precise tool for performing a range of procedures.

What Can Laser Dentistry Be Used For?

Laser dentistry is used for various dental treatments, such as:

Gum Reshaping

Ideal for addressing gummy smiles or uneven gum lines, laser dentistry allows for precise and effective gum reshaping, enhancing the aesthetic appearance of your smile.

Cavity Treatment  

Laser dentistry enables the removal of decay without the need for drilling. This approach offers a more comfortable experience for patients during cavity treatment.

Soft Tissue Procedures

Used for biopsies, frenectomies, and other soft tissue surgeries, laser dentistry provides a minimally invasive alternative with quicker healing times compared to traditional methods.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Lasers allow dentists to resect the uvula and soft palate, ensuring that the airway stays open overnight. This helps the patient to rest more easily overnight, and it can even reduce snoring!  

What Are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?

  • Minimally Invasive: Reduces the need for drills and anesthesia, enhancing patient comfort.
  • Faster Healing: Laser procedures often result in quicker recovery times.
  • Precision: Allows for targeted treatment, preserving healthy tissues.

Does Laser Dentistry Hurt?  

Laser dentistry is generally associated with less pain and discomfort compared to traditional methods. The precision of lasers minimizes damage to surrounding tissues, promoting a more comfortable experience.
