Laser Dentistry

Dentistry done comfortably

For patients with a fear of the dentist, the noises of drills and other dental tools can be a source of discomfort. With laser dentistry, a variety of procedures can be done with little to no discomfort by using a handheld laser. This allows patients to get the care they need without the stress they may associate with the dentist.

A long-lasting solution

Many times, patients are hesitant to go to the dentist because of the sounds and vibrations caused by the dental drill. This is why we use laser technology in our office, since it is easier, painless and quicker than traditional drills. Laser dentistry uses high-powered laser technology to power away soft and hard tissue. It can be useful in most dental appointments when a drill or even scalpel might be needed.

What is Laser Dentistry? 

Many times, patients are hesitant to go to the dentist because of the sounds and vibrations caused by the dental drill. This is why we use laser technology in our office, since it is easier, painless and quicker than traditional drills. Laser dentistry uses high-powered laser technology to power away soft and hard tissue. It can be useful in most dental appointments when a drill or even scalpel might be needed. 

Why is Laser Dentistry needed? 

The reason laser dentistry might be needed is because we need to treat either hard or soft tissue. Lasers can be used to eradicate areas of decay as well as file down and smooth teeth in preparation for crowns and bridge work. In surgical procedures, these lasers can be used to help cut through soft tissue without the trauma of a typical scalpel. The process of using a laser in dental procedures is safe and highly effective.
