LASER is the abbreviation for "light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation." Laser dentistry uses lasers - a focused beam of light energy to address and fix a wide range of dental conditions, including cavity detection, gum disease treatment, tissue removal, crown lengthening, tooth whitening, etc. The lasers can be used to reshape gum tissue or remove excess gum tissue in order to achieve better oral health. In some cases, the laser treatment can be used to seal exposed roots following tooth loss as a means of preventing further bone loss.

In other cases, a laser may be used to prepare a tooth for a filling, crown, or bridge placement. When preparing a tooth for restoration, the laser can be used to remove decay and prepare the tooth to be fitted with a restoration. This is often done without the need for any drilling or shots to numb the area; however, some patients may still require the use of a local anesthetic prior to treatment.

How does Laser Dentistry work?

When your dentist performs laser treatment, he or she will use a laser that has been adjusted to a very specific level of light energy output. This beam of energy will gently and precisely work on tissue or a tooth without causing any harm to the surrounding tissues. In some cases, the laser is so precise that it can be used to remove a small amount of enamel from a tooth to prepare it for a filling or other restoration. In other cases, the dental laser can be used to shave away diseased gum tissue for effective treatment of gum disease.

There are several benefits to using Laser Dentistry over other methods of dental treatment. Thanks to the precision of lasers, there is very little bleeding or swelling after the procedure, which means you'll experience less discomfort, fewer side effects, and faster recovery times. The precision of the dental laser also makes it ideal for performing delicate dental procedures like crown lengthening and reshaping. Laser treatments don't rely on heat, which means that there's little to no risk of pulpal damage, which can sometimes be a problem with other dental treatments like root canal therapy. Finally, since dental lasers can often be used in place of drills for some procedures, there's often no pain after treatment. The best way to find out if Laser Dentistry is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentist. Your dentist will be able to evaluate your condition and develop a treatment plan based on your individual needs. Call us for a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, lasers have been used in dental procedures for many years; in fact, millions of patients around the world have benefited from this efficient technology without experiencing any adverse effects. In fact, many dentists prefer Laser Dentistry over traditional treatment methods because of the improved precision, control, and reduced risk of infection.
Laser therapy is FDA-approved and has been used for decades in medical, surgical, cosmetic, periodontal, and even veterinary applications. Like a traditional drill, a laser uses water, air, or a specialized spray in order to work; however, when the laser is used it creates less noise and vibration than the traditional variants. Additionally, the wavelength emitted by lasers allows for increased visibility for the practitioner during procedures. This enhanced visibility can help the dentist maintain better control and accuracy during the procedure, reducing the need for additional invasive measures like sutures or stitches.
Lasers emit energy in the form of light waves that are designed to target a specific tissue type or structure, such as your teeth, gums, and bone. The highly focused light beam is designed to kill bacteria, viruses, and other potentially harmful microorganisms that can cause infections or disease. When used to treat gum disease, the laser can also be used to target infected pockets and remove harmful bacteria buildup within the gum line. Because these bacteria and toxins are removed, there is less of a risk of further infection, inflammation, or other dangerous side effects associated with poor oral health. Additionally, because the procedure is more precise, there is a reduced chance of permanent tooth loss due to trauma or improper cleaning of sensitive gum tissues.
The use of laser technology means that you will experience much less discomfort during your procedure when compared to traditional methods. Your dentist can use lasers to perform a variety of procedures from whitening to filling cavities.
Laser Dentistry is used to treat many common oral health issues, including tooth decay, gum disease, and the effects of teeth grinding. It’s even possible to use lasers to help conceal blemishes, eliminate snoring, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes.

No, laser treatments are not painful. In fact, many patients report the sensation as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Most patients do not feel any significant discomfort during a procedure. However, if you have anxiety over dental treatments, you can request sedation to help make you feel more relaxed. In this case, we do recommend having a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment with us.
