We offer one of the latest technological advances in dentistry, the dental laser. This precise technique uses energy in the form of light for many dental procedures. It allows dentists an effective way to treat a targeted area while limiting exposure to surrounding tissues. The laser is delivered in different wavelengths to the site to absorb light, while at the same time reflecting different wavelengths.
Typical laser dentistry treatments include placing dental fillings or tooth preparation, gum or soft tissue treatments, better viewing of teeth and gums, as well as speeding up bleaching processes during teeth whitening. This technology provides our dentists with more accuracy and control when compared to traditional dentistry techniques.
There are many benefits with laser dentistry:
• No stitches or sutures for soft tissue dental procedures.
• Anesthesia is not required for many laser techniques.
• Procedures tend to me more comfortable for the patient.
• Wounds or targeted areas heal faster.
• Bleeding and bacteria infections are minimized.
• There is no damage to the surrounding tissue.
Patients will benefit from early cavity detection with our laser dentistry DIAGNOdent machine.
Our dentists also utilize the DIAGNOdent diagnostic laser. This hand-held, safe, and pain-free laser technology detects cavities when they are very small. Ultimately, these cavities may never need to be filled. If caught early enough, the tooth may be restored more cost-effectively using a sealant, hygiene, or fluoride treatment.
