Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry offers significant advantages for patients that include some or all of the following:

  • These procedures may reduce the need for anesthesia or, in some cases, eliminate it altogether.
  • Bleeding is minimized when laser procedures are implemented. Additionally, these advanced dental strategies can significantly reduce the risk of bacterial infection after surgical interventions.
  •  Soft-tissue procedures may require fewer sutures or stitches when performed with dental lasers.
  • The high degree of precision possible with dental laser treatment can minimize damage to surrounding teeth and tissues, allowing you to enjoy a faster recovery time after your procedure.

Our team of experienced professionals can help you determine the right therapeutic measures for all your dental care needs.

Facts about Laser Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease is caused by an infection of the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Over time, this condition can loosen teeth, cause bleeding of the gums and may even lead to pus-filled pockets under the gums that can cause severe pain. Laser periodontal therapy is designed to remove inflamed and infected tissue to allow healthy tissue to regenerate and to provide relief from pain for patients.

Types of Dental Laser Treatment

Lasers can be used in a wide array of dental applications. Most often, the dental laser is used to cut away damaged tissue and decayed parts of teeth to reduce the risks of infection and to provide a secure anchorage point for other dental appliances. Dental lasers can also be used to boost the whitening power of chemical bleaches and to combat bacterial infections in susceptible patients.

Laser Teeth Whitening Strategies

In combination with bleaching trays and other chemical compounds, lasers are often used to speed up the process and to provide added whitening power to these chemical compounds. Laser teeth whitening procedures can help you achieve the most beautiful smile possible.

Laser Gum Surgery for Periodontal Disease

Dental lasers are also used to reshape gums for a more attractive appearance or a healthier smile. These advanced tools can also be used to prepare teeth and gums for crowns and other dental appliances. By cutting away gum tissue that could interfere with the proper placement of these crowns, your dental technician can increase the likelihood of success for your laser procedure.

Laser Teeth Cleaning Facts

Laser tooth cleaning procedures are designed to reduce bleeding and swelling for patients, especially those suffering from advanced periodontal disease. We will work with you to determine whether these advanced cleaning treatments are right for you and your family.

Preparing Teeth for Laser Fillings

The dreaded drill is one of the most common reasons given by patients for avoiding the dentist. Laser procedures eliminate the noise, pain, and vibration associated with these common pieces of dental equipment, allowing patients to enjoy greater comfort and added peace of mind throughout their procedures.

Investing in Laser Cavity Removal

Dental laser therapies can provide added help for our patients in managing cavities and removing decayed portions of otherwise viable teeth. Our team of laser professionals can provide you with virtually painless procedures that can restore the health of your teeth while allowing you to enjoy faster recovery times and improved outcomes for all your dental care needs.

If you are considering a laser procedure to whiten your teeth, correct issues associated with gum disease, or to remove decay before the application of a crown or filling, contact us today to discuss your needs with our dental laser experts. We look forward to the chance to help you achieve the brightest smile and the healthiest teeth possible.
