What treatment can be done using a dental laser?
Early Cavity Detector: Low intensity dental lasers may be used for the early detection of cavities a reliable, non-invasive laser that looks inside a tooth surface for bacterial contaminants and measures the decay. It is highly effective in detecting cavities at an early stage where teeth are most vulnerable.
Fillings: Dental lasers may eliminate the need for a local anesthetic and the traditional dental drill. Lasers used in dental filling procedures are able to kill bacteria located in a cavity.
Periodontal Surgery: Dental Lasers can reshape gum tissue and bone to expose healthier tooth structure. Crown lengthening provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations and gum reshaping will improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
Sensitivity: Dental lasers may be used to seal tubules (located on the root of the tooth) that are responsible for hot and cold tooth sensitivity.
Whitening: Low intensity lasers may be used to speed up the bleaching process associated with teeth whitening
Benign Tumors: Dental lasers can be used for the removal of benign tumors from the oral cavity and is usually painless and suture free.
