Laser Dentistry is one of the most advanced dental treatments today. Laser uses a unique technology that combines focused light and thermal energy for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience. Laser dentistry allows your dentist to perform a wide range of procedures with benefits including:
- Faster healing time and less trauma to teeth and gums
- Less anesthetic for most procedures
- Less post-operative discomfort
- Making dental care a more relaxing experience for you
The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Laser treatments provide patients with greater comfort, less bleeding, faster healing, and better results than conventional treatments.
Your Laser Dentist can often get you in and out of the dental chair faster! With Laser Dentistry, more can be completed in a single visit.
Laser Dentistry provides consistency, safety, and precision for better management of soft tissue conditions.
What Can Laser Dentistry Do?
Laser Dentistry may be used to treat your gums or other soft tissue in your mouth. It can also help to:
IMPROVE YOUR SMILE WITH TEETH WHITENING
Get a more confident smile! Laser Whitening is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective and fast. In just 20 minutes, your teeth will be dramatically whiter.
REMOVE ORAL LESIONS
Canker sores and cold sores can be painful making it difficult to talk and eat. Your Laser Dentist can safely and efficiently treat sores on your lips, tongue, inner cheek and gums — often relieving pain immediately.
If you are experiencing pain and discomfort, Laser works as a therapeutic device that helps to temporarily increase your blood circulation as well as to temporarily relax your muscles within 5 to 10 minutes of treatment.
TREAT GUM DISEASE
Laser Dentistry may be recommended as part of your treatment plan during the early stages of gum disease to help control the bacteria in your mouth and prevent the progression of this disease.
PROVIDE ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL ORAL SURGERY
No one wants surgery, but when oral surgery is required, a scalpel and stitches can cause pain and discomfort. Laser Dentistry is a gentler alternative providing patients with less pain and faster healing.
