Lasers have many beneficial applications in dentistry. We utilize two different laser technologies in our office. First, we have a diode laser, which allows us to perform laser gum disease treatment and gum recontouring without using a blade to cut your gums. There’s less discomfort, less bleeding, and the laser can kill many of the bacteria in the area, helping control infection.
We also have Waterlase, a laser that also uses water to remove tooth enamel without the need for the loud, grating dental drill. This can make for more comfortable dental treatments, and can reduce incidental damage to your teeth.
