What can the Dental Laser do for our patients?
This beam of light has the ability to: kill bacteria and viruses that cause mouth sores such as
cold and canker sores, treat periodontal disease by destroying the bacteria that causes it and
remove unhealthy gums where those germs live, and help with the removal of endodontic infections.
By increasing power, Dental Lasers can remove unwanted tissue such as excessive gums that create
"gummy smiles", or excess tissue that you bite when you eat. Dental Lasers can also
be used to remove tooth decay instead of the noisy drill.
A Dental Laser can also be used for biopsies of suspicious lesions, help with impressions for
crowns and bridges, detect cavities, and harden dental filling materials just to name a few.
Most importantly, many of the above procedures can be done with little or no anesthetic (no needles!).
Healing time is fast, theres usually no swelling, and almost all Laser procedures are quick
