Laser in Dentistry

What is a laser?

Lasers are high-technology devices that generate a beam of concentrated light in short pulses which remove areas of infection or tooth decay and seal off blood vessels, minimizing the chance of bleeding. Lasers are pain-free and vibration-free.

The most common types of lasers that can be found in the dental office fall into three categories, depending on the area of use:

  1. Hard tissue (teeth).
  2. Soft tissue (gums).
  3. Aesthetic dentistry procedures such as curing composite (white) filling material and tooth whitening.

What is the advantage of laser dentistry?

  • Less time in the dental chair and faster healing.
  • Reduced risk of infection.
  • Less need for anesthesia.
  • Greater precision.
  • Less noise and vibration free procedure.
  • Decrease sensitivity.
  • Less bleeding during surgery.
  • Less post-operative pain.
