Laser Dentistry

There are several advantages to laser procedures. A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes into contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. LASER stands for Light Amplification by Simulated Emission of Radiation.
Laser are used in Dentistry to:

  • reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores
  • expose partially erupted teeth or wisdom teeth
  • remove muscle attachments that limit proper movement (frenectomy)
  • manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures
  • remove overgrown tissues caused by certain medications
  • perform biopsy procedures
  • remove inflamed gum tissues and aid in the treatment of periodontal disease
  • remove or reshape gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedures-help treat infections in root canals
  • speed up tooth whitening procedures

There are several advantages to lasers. Faster healing, quicker tissue regeneration and reduced need for sutures are just a few of the benefits. Lasers can also reduce the amount of bacteria in both diseased gum tissue and in tooth cavities as well as control bleeding during surgical procedures.
