Laser Dentistry

A soft tissue laser produces a highly focused laser light that can be used to change soft tissues in the mouth. This laser can make very small incisions when the beam is focused on the tissue. The laser beam has a natural sterilization effect, evaporating bacteria, viruses, and fungi, leading to fewer local infections. Our Dental Hygienists may use the laser by placing its microfiber tip just under the gum line, where it releases heat and disrupts bacteria that causes gingivitis.

This is a gentle and cool laser with such a short pulse that your nerves never have time to notice it, so you’ll feel no pain. It penetrates to microscopically shallow levels, which makes it very precise, and it works silently. A huge benefit of using this laser is the ability to remove decay without using a traditional “dental drill”, often without the need for dental freezing.
