Lasers in Dentistry – Minimally Invasive Procedures


Dental lasers are a medical technology that emits a beam of concentrated light. When used for surgical and periodontal procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument. The procedures performed with dental lasers are minimally invasive and preferable to conventional surgery.


Benefits of Laser Dentistry:


  • Reduced heat and vibration
  • Little or no need for anesthetic
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Faster treatment time
  • Reduced damage to healthy tissues
  • Minimal post-operative swelling and discomfort

Laser technology can be used to:


  • Reshape gum tissue
  • Biopsy or remove soft tissue lesions and ulcers
  • Eliminate infection in gum tissue pockets
  • Fuse tissues
  • Perform frenectomies (such as correction of ankyloglossia)
