What is Laser Dentistry?
Dental lasers use a beam of concentrated light to conduct a variety of dental procedures. In recent years, the use of dental lasers has increased across the country as dentists turn to this technology for unrivaled accuracy and comfort. With dental lasers, patients experience a decreased risk of infection and discomfort as well as a faster recovery time following treatment.

Treating Periodontal Disease
With dental lasers, we can address periodontal disease by providing thorough scaling and root planing. Also known as a deep cleaning, this procedure removes plaque from the tooth and root surface. We use the lasers to remove plaque and infected gum tissue, providing a smooth tooth surface for healthy gums to adhere to. The procedure helps close periodontal pockets and restores gums to optimal healthy and appearance.
Before placing a dental crown or veneer, we often need to prepare the tooth. This involves removing a small amount of tooth structure. In addition, for procedures meant to address infected or decayed teeth, we will need to remove the decayed portions and sterilize the tooth. Using dental lasers, we can remove tooth structure and decay with precision. The procedure rarely requires any anesthesia, so patients enjoy a comfortable, relaxing experience.
