Laser Dentistry

What is laser dentistry? If you’ve never heard of this innovative type of dental care, now is the time to learn. Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive option when you’re facing gum surgery, hypersensitivity, or other oral issues. 

Most issues laser dentistry treats are related to the gums. Some of these include:
  • Canker sore and cold sore pain treatments.
  • Treating root canal infections.
  • Treating gum disease.
  • Removing gum inflammation.
  • Gum reshaping.
  • Biopsies.
  • Lengthening crowns.
  • Dealing with restricted tongue movement.
  • Reshaping the gums to create a more pleasing smile.
  • Removing folds in oral soft tissues caused by dentures.
  • Exposing wisdom teeth.
  • Removing throat tissue that causes sleep apnea.
  • Removing benign oral tumours.

We choose laser dentistry because of distinct benefits that make the procedures go more smoothly, and also reduce discomfort and healing time for patients.
  • Patients are less likely to require sutures
  • Anesthesia may not be necessary
  • The laser will sterilize the gums, making infection less likely
  • Less damage to gums shortens the healing time
  • Patients lose less blood than traditional surgery
