Lasers in Dentistry - Minimally Invasive Procedures


Dental lasers are a medical technology that emits a beam of concentrated light. When used for surgical and periodontal procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument. The procedures performed with dental lasers are minimally invasive and preferable to conventional surgery.

Lasers in dentistry allow for many procedures to be performed with no noise, minimal pain, less bleeding, faster recovery times, and fewer appointments.


Additional Benefits of Laser Dentistry:


  • Reduced heat and vibration
  • Little or no need for anesthetic
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Faster treatment time
  • Reduced damage to healthy tissues
  • Minimal post-operative swelling and discomfort
  • Fewer infections or post-operative complications

Laser Dentistry can be used for:


  • Remove areas of tooth decay
  • Eliminate infection in gum tissue pockets
  • Fuse tissues
  • Perform frenectomies (such as correction of ankyloglossia)
  • Perform extractions
  • Reshape gum tissue
  • Biopsy or remove soft tissue lesions and ulcers
