Laser Dentistry uses a focused beam of light to remove tooth decay, treat gum disease, and much more. Laser dentistry is less invasive and less traumatic than other options, meaning that procedures are quicker, require no or little anesthesia, and require less recovery time. Often, we can perform multiple treatments in one sitting, also reducing the number of trips you need to make.
Because we don’t use cutting instruments, procedures done with a laser are less invasive and less painful than other methods. With minimal sedation, lasers immediately cauterize the tissue being treated, which leads to quicker healing time and allows patients to resume normal activity quickly, and sometimes immediately.
