Our skilled dentist uses dental lasers to perform many of the treatments offered at our office. Laser dentistry allows us to provide quicker, more effective, more comfortable and more hygienic treatments that will resolve problems and restore your oral health and function. Laser technology may be used in a wide range of treatments, including:
- Treating periodontal disease (soft tissue treatments)
- Hardening dental fillings
- Removing decayed or damaged tooth structure
- Treating cold and canker sores
- Performing or speeding up teeth whitening treatments
- Recontouring the gum line
Most dental treatments completed using a laser do not require the use of anesthetic, although we will provide a local anesthetic if you feel that you need it. Laser dentistry also helps reduce your recovery time and decrease any risk of infection following treatment, as well as minimize any bleeding during and after your procedure. Best of all, lasers are extremely precise, allowing our dentist to treat the targeted area without affecting any healthy tissues nearby.
