What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser is a pain-free and effective way to kill bacteria in the gums and prevent or treat periodontal issues. Laser therapy targets and reduces the bacteria that causes inflammation and bleeding, as well as increases the healing process. Laser can be used to focus on specific pockets in the gums that show signs of infection. It can also be used around the entire mouth as a preventative treatment of the gums.

Why is Laser Dentistry needed?

We use laser to kill bacteria, heal portions of the mouth, and prevent future bacterial accumulation that causes periodontal disease. Laser therapy can also be used to treat cold sores, root sensitivity and TMJ pain. All treatments are painless and long lasting and can usually be performed at your routine dental visit.

What Happens during Laser Dentistry?

The first step is to have you come into our office for your appointment. We will sit you comfortably in one of our operatories. The laser treatment you receive will be determined by your individual needs. Lasers can be used in various ways at your dental appointment including for periodontal issues, TMJ pain and even cold sores. We use a small handheld device and laser technology to stimulate healing, relieve pain or remove bacteria under the gums. We can use this type of technology when you come in for your routine hygiene visit or at a separate appointment for more in-depth treatment. You will find that the procedure is quick and pain-free.

If you think you might benefit from laser dentistry, call us today so that we can get you in for a consultation appointment.
