Laser Dentistry

In laser dentistry, dental procedures are performed using lasers. The use of lasers allows many dental procedures to be performed with great precision, few complications and very little pain. Lasers are versatile tools that can be used in the following dental procedures:

  • Cavity detection
  • Tartar removal
  • Dental fillings
  • Gum surgery
  • Dental implants
  • Teeth whitening

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Benefits of laser dentistry over traditional dentistry may include:

  • Minimal or no need for anesthetic
  • Little or no bleeding
  • Faster treatment time
  • Reduction in bacterial infections
  • Less post-operative pain and swelling
  • Less damage to surrounding tissue
  • Reduced need for medications or antibiotics after treatment

Many patients find that laser dentistry is preferable to traditional dentistry, with its use of drills and other invasive tools. Pain and swelling are greatly reduced; the laser beam's accuracy means that damage to surrounding tissue is minimized; and several procedures can be performed during a single appointment, resulting in fewer dental visits.
