Laser Dentistry

For patients who do not look forward to needles, drilling, or numbness, Laser Dentistry, may be the right choice.
 
Laser dentistry is one of dentistry's latest advances. The Laser delivers energy in the form of light. Depending on the intended result, this energy travels at different wavelengths and is absorbed by a "target." In dentistry, these targets can be enamel, decay, gum tissue, or whitening enhancers. Each one absorbs a different wavelength of light while reflecting others. Laser dentistry can be used for both tooth and soft tissue related procedures. Often times no local anesthesia is required. Unlike the dental drill with laser dentistry there is no heat or vibration, making the procedure quite comfortable for most patients. For soft tissue (surgical) procedures it eliminates the need for suturing and healing is much faster.
 
Lasers can be used to diagnose cavities. They can find hidden decay in teeth in early stages, and in some cases the decay can be reversed through hygiene and fluoride treatment and may never need filling.
 
Areas of dental care that benefit from laser technology:
  • Cavity diagnosis and removal
  • Curing, or hardening bonding materials
  • Whitening teeth
  • Periodontal, or gum related care
  • Pediatric procedures.
  • Apthous Ulcer treatment (canker sore)
  • Frenectomy (tongue-tie release) without anesthesia or sutures
  • Root Canal and apicopectomies
  • Crown lengthening, gingivectomy and other gum corrections
 
Dental lasers have been shown to be safe and effective for treating both children and adults.
