Laser dentistry is a safe and effective option for a wide range of dental procedures. Used in conjunction with traditional dental tools, laser instruments reduce pain during treatment and cut back on recovery time afterwards.

Laser Dentistry Uses


When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction and can remove or shape tissue. It also sterilizes the affected area, so chances of bleeding, tooth pain and tooth infection are minimal. Laser dentistry can be used to:

  • Reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores
  • Remove tooth decay
  • Desensitize teeth
  • Expose partially erupted wisdom teeth
  • Intensify whitening procedures
  • Reshape gums and removes bacteria through root canal procedures
  • Aid in gum disease treatment
  • Perform biopsies

Dental Laser Benefits


Some of the advantages of laser dentistry include:

  • Less pain: Unlike dental drills, lasers do not cause any vibrations or jarring effects.
  • Shorter recovery time: Since laser instruments are very precise, patients tend to make quicker recoveries.
  • Less damage: Compared to traditional dental instruments, lasers do less damage to surrounding tissue during a procedure.
  • More comfortable: Usually anesthesia and stitches are not needed during laser dental procedures.

Laser Dentistry Candidates


The earlier that tooth decay and cavities are detected the more likely you’ll be a good candidate for laser dental treatments that can prevent the need for more extensive procedures such as  root canals or dental implants.

Dental Lasers Safety


Dental lasers have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Compared to traditional drills, they reduce the chance of accidental injury since they are so accurate. This precision also allows dentists to pinpoint treatment, which destroys less of the tooth and causes less friction.

Laser Dentistry FAQs


How much does laser dentistry cost?

Each laser dental procedure varies due to treatment type, and other factors. Our front desk can give you an estimate, and if you have dental insurance we can see how much it may cover.

How Accurate are the Lasers?


Lasers can be refined to pinpoint accuracy and can be narrowed to make incisions as small as one-fifth of a millimeter across. They are typically more accurate than a drill.

Laser dentistry is very targeted and precise, and it has a low level of pain.
