What Does it Do?

Laser dentistry can be used for a wide range of dental procedures, including:

  • Gum disease treatment: Laser therapy can remove infected gum tissue, eliminate bacteria, and promote gum tissue regeneration for improved periodontal health.
  • Gum reshaping: Laser technology can sculpt and reshape gum tissue to improve the appearance of a "gummy" smile or uneven gum line.
  • Tooth decay removal: Lasers can precisely target and remove decayed tooth structure while preserving healthy tooth structure, minimizing the need for anesthesia and reducing discomfort.
  • Soft tissue procedures: Laser technology can be used for biopsies, frenectomies, and other soft tissue surgeries with minimal bleeding and faster healing times.
