Laser Dentistry

Lasers are a focus of new research and applications for the dental profession. Our office is proud to offer laser dentistry - a technology so safe and easy, it eliminates the need for anesthesia and shots in many cases.

A laser produces a very narrow and intense beam of light energy that may or may not be visible to the naked eye. A laser is ideal to perform many procedures because it is very precise, gentle and safe. The laser that our office uses does not produce heat and therefore cannot harm adjacent teeth or gums. It's even safe for babies, children, teens, and adults.

Laser dentistry can be used for many purposes:

  • Decay removal.
  • Cavity preparation.
  • Reshape "gummy" smiles.
  • Releasing tongue-ties and lip-ties
  • Relieving painful canker sores and accelerating healing time.
  • General soft tissue procedures.
  • Avoid being "numbed".
  • Avoid the shot and pain.

We are excited about our new laser dentistry technology. So are our patients when they can have their cavities filled without numbing or shots. While we do not use our dental laser for nerve treatments and crowns, many cavities can be filled with the new technology.
