Laser Dentistry

Lasers use light energy to assist us in soft tissue procedures. Old methods involve cutting tissue, stitches, bleeding, increased healing times, and scar tissue. With lasers, we can remove or shape tissue as necessary. Lasers can be especially useful in orthodontics to assist teeth in eruption in order to progress treatment. We can also use lasers to sculpt overgrown tissue painlessly and with faster healing times than traditional gum surgery. Some other advantages include:

  • Less pain in many instances.
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Minimizes bleeding and swelling
  • Preserves more healthy tooth structure during cavity removal
