Our practice aligns with the newest dental technology and uses lasers to reduce pain, tissue loss and bleeding and to provide the most advanced care possible. The use of a laser allows some procedures to be performed without the use of a drill or the need for an injection.
Lasers produce a very thin but intense beam of light energy which can be visible or invisible to the human eye. This energy beam has the ability to cut and shape soft tissues (gums, tongue, etc.) and hard tissues (teeth, caries and bone). This energy is used to achieve precision when shaping the gums, biopsying oral tissues, removing tooth decay, and killing bacteria to improve periodontal health.
