Dental Information

Laser Treatment

A dental laser is a special type of laser designed solely for use in dentistry or oral surgery. There are many variations of dental laser using different intensities/wavelengths, depending on the application or treatment.

Laser treatment more accurately targets the problem area and involves directing a beam of laser light that sterilizes the area and seals the blood vessels closed. The procedure is quick and most patients do not require anesthesia.

Though the use of laser has continued to grow since the 1960s, it was first approved for gum treatment in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the early '90s, and for teeth/hard tissue treatments in 1996. Its application has continued to grow worldwide since.

Advantages of Dental Laser Treatment:

  • Quicker healing.
  • Reduces the number of further treatments.
  • Reduction in infection risk.
  • Gentle on the mouth.
  • Reduces surgery noise level.
  • Reduces the need for anesthesia.
