Accurate, less discomfort and more versatility. For patients who are uncomfortable with needles or numbness, Laser Dentistry may be the right choice. Laser delivers energy in the form of light. Depending on the intended result, this energy travels at different wavelengths and is absorbed by a “target.” The dental laser does not generate excessive heat, vibration or pressure. Many procedures can be performed with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia and fewer numb lips! Due to the ultra fine focus of the laser we are able to remove gum and soft tissue precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This allows for faster and more comfortable healing.
