Laser Dentistry

Laser therapy offers a variety of options for dental treatment. The laser delivers energy in the form of light. Depending on the intended result, this energy travels at different wavelengths and is absorbed by a “target.”

In dentistry, these targets can be enamel, decay, gum tissue, or whitening enhancers.

Each one absorbs a different wavelength of light while reflecting others. For soft tissue (surgical) procedures it eliminates the need for suturing and healing is much faster.

Lasers can also be used to diagnose cavities. They can find hidden decay in teeth in early stages, and in some cases, the decay can be reversed through hygiene and fluoride treatment and may never need filling.

Dental lasers can be used for...

  • Cavity diagnosis and removal
  • Curing, or hardening, bonding materials
  • Whitening teeth
  • Periodontal or gum related care
  • Pediatric procedures
  • Canker sore treatment
  • Frenectomy (tongue-tie release) without anesthesia or sutures
  • Root canals and apicoectomies
  • Crown lengthening, gingivectomy and other gum corrections
