Laser dentistry

Laser Solutions

Soft Tissue Lasers in dentistry allow for many dental procedures to be performed with no noise, very little pain and fewer appointments. All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth-whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth-bleaching agents. The procedures performed with dental lasers are minimally invasive and alternative to conventional surgery.

Other benefits of laser dentistry over traditional methods can include:

  • Reduced heat and vibration

  • Less anesthesia needed

  • Faster treatment time

  • Less post-operative complications

Some of the dental treatment provided by lasers are as followed:

  • Whiten teeth

  • Reshape gum tissue

  • Biopsy or remove soft tissue lesions and ulcers

  • Eliminate pockets of infected gum tissue

  • Correct ankyloglossia (tongue-tied)

  • Remove overgrown unhealthy gum tissue

  • Frenectomy
