Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches)
Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia by injection.
Laser dentistry reduces bleeding.
Bacterial infections are minimized
Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized
Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
Cavity Detector: Detects tooth cavities.
Dental Fillings/Tooth Preparation: Hard tissue dental lasers may eliminate the need for a local anesthetic injection and the traditional turbine dental drill. However, dental lasers are not appropriate for the replacement of amalgam fillings, onlays or crowns.
Tooth Sensitivity: Treats sensitivity of teeth to hot and cold. Soft tissue (gum) laser dentistry procedures
Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure-such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
Gummy Smile: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to make your gummy smile disappear.
Viewing Tooth and Gum Tissues: Optical Coherence Tomography is a safer way to see inside tooth and gums in real time.
Benign Tumors: Painless and suture-free removal of benign tumors from the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips.
Cold Sores: To reduce pain associated with cold sores and minimize healing time.
Sleep Apnea: In cases where sleep apnea is a result of a tissue overgrowth in areas of the throat (which sometimes occurs with age), laser treatment can be performed to reshape the throat and relieve the correlating breathing problems associated with sleep apnea.
Teeth Whitening: To speed up the bleaching process associated with teeth whitening.
