What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a type of treatment that involves the use of a dental laser to perform a wide array of different procedures. A dental laser involves the use of a concentrated beam of light, no thicker than a human hair. The wavelength of the laser is adjustable, which allows us to perform several different tasks. We can cut soft tissue, tooth structure, and bone. The laser can also be used to help stimulate the growth of new tissue.

Is Laser Dentistry Safe?
While still fairly new in the dental world, laser dentistry is very safe. It is just as safe as performing treatments with traditional instruments. Just like traditional instruments, however, there are still some risks that are associated with this treatment. One of these risks is that the laser can cause damage to your eyes. We provide you with special glasses to wear during your procedure that will help to protect them. Another risk is that the wrong wavelength can cause permanent damage. We are highly experienced with the use of lasers and can take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and effective treatment.
