What is Laser Dentistry


A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissues, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue.

Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1990. Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments.

Dental lasers can be used to:
  • Reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores
  • Expose partially erupted wisdom tooth.
  • Remove muscle attachments that limit proper movement.
  • Manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures.
  • Remove overgrow tissues cause by certain medications.
  • Perform biopsy procedures.
  • Remove inflamed gum tissues and aid in the treatment of gum disease.
  • Remove or reshape gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedures.
  • Help treat infections in root canals.
  • There are several advantages, dentists may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia in some procedures, allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experiences can be more precise. Also, lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional; therapies; reduce the amount of bacteria in both diseased gum tissue and in tooth cavities; and control bleeding during surgery.

    When your dentist performs a laser procedure, you will be asked to wear special eyeglasses to protect your eyes from the laser.
