Laser Decay Detection
Laser dentistry enables us to effectively and efficiently address our patients’ needs. For example, the DIAGNOdent cavity-detection laser shows areas prone to decay at the earliest stages. Another form of laser dentistry, our soft-tissue laser, allows our periodontist to correct damage from gum disease and to perform oral surgery procedures. With the soft-tissue application of laser dentistry, patients don’t need stitches after surgery because the laser seals as it cuts. Patients usually recover more quickly, feel less pain, and experience less bleeding with laser dentistry.
