We use laser dentistry in our practice for hard and soft tissue procedures. Laser dentistry is painless and can be used to correct many problems. In most cases, we can treat patients without the need for an anesthetic shot.
Using laser dentistry as opposed to other forms of surgery does have its advantages. Lasers can control the amount of bleeding during the treatment and can sometimes remove gum tissue without causing bleeding. In laser dentistry, there may also be less swelling and pain following the surgery, as the laser can seal blood vessels and nerve endings.
