The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

dental laserBiological dentistry is minimally invasive dentistry. And one of the newest tools we have to minimize the amount of trauma to your teeth and gums when we need to work on them is Biolase.

This state-of-the-art dental laser works on hard and soft tissues alike. We can use it in a variety of ways – for periodontal hygiene and surgery, restorative (filling) procedures, and more.

The laser lets us perform procedures with more accuracy and precision than ever. Patient outcomes improve. Pain and complications are reduced.

Less Pain & Fewer Complications

High speed drills can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth, which eventually lead to future dental problems. The dental laser reduces the risk of such damage, as well as the risk of harm to the delicate pulp inside. It’s our priority to protect its health so you can avoid potential complications such as long-term pain, infection and even root canal therapy

Laser also lets us conserve more of the healthy tooth structure by leaving surrounding areas unaffected by the treatment.

And its gentle cutting action and clotting capabilities often mean minimal bleeding, less post-op swelling, and no need for pain medication with many soft tissue (gum) procedures.

A More Comfortable Experience

When we use the laser to treat your teeth and gums, there are fewer shots and less need for anesthesia. And unlike a drill, the laser doesn’t generate heat, vibration, or pressure, so you can expect a more pleasant treatment experience.

Fewer Dental Visits

With laser technology, you can expect a much more streamlined treatment plan. We can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit and increase the bond strength for longer lasting fillings. We even have the ability to perform many procedures that were previously referred to specialists.

With laser technology, we can elevate the standard of care in dentistry and improve a patient’s quality of life.
