Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Throughout the medical field, modern advances in science and medical technology allow practitioners to do things that were only imaginable at one point. One of these advancements is medical laser technology. Laser dentistry uses a special laser system that allows your dentist to perform important dental procedures in a more effective manner and with less side effects than with conventional treatment. 

Dental laser treatments use a highly concentrated beam of light to target and vaporize the intended tissue. The precise laser beam replaces more traditional tools such as a scalpel and leads to more precise outcomes. In addition, the laser cauterizes wounds as it works, reducing bleeding, killing bacteria, and leading to quicker recovery times. 

What are common laser dentistry procedures?

Just For Your Smile uses cutting-edge laser treatments for a range of dentistry procedures, including:

Teeth cleanings 

Just For Your Smile uses laser dentistry when performing deep cleanings, ensuring that bacteria-trapping plaque is eliminated by the laser in a noninvasive manner. This replaces conventional scaling and root planing and serves to protect you from gingivitis and periodontal disease. 

Gum reshaping

The laser is an indispensable tool when it comes to gum-reshaping procedures. The laser sterilizes the targeted tissue, reducing inflammation and bleeding, and leading to shorter recovery times. 

Teeth whitening

In-office teeth whitening makes use of special, concentrated light beams to achieve more dramatic and immediate results than at-home kits. 

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry has a range of benefits compared to conventional treatments. These include:

  • Less invasive
  • Reduces pain
  • Stimulates healthy tissue growth
