What is Laser Dentistry?

We use laser technology in our office since it is easier, heals more readily and quicker than traditional care. Laser dentistry uses high-powered laser technology to power away soft tissue. It can be useful in most dental appointments when a scalpel might be needed.

Why is Laser Dentistry needed?

The reason laser dentistry might be needed is because we need to treat soft tissue. Lasers can be used reshape the gums to improve the appearance, reduce attachments that limit tongue movement, treat an herpetic lesion, or remove a lesion from where the lip has been bit. 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.
