|Dental Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) technology is a wonderful tool for dentists, and for their patients. It has been used in various types of medical procedures since 1994. Lasers work by directing energy in the form of a light. We are able to use dental lasers for surgical and dental procedures. It acts as both a cutting instrument and a vaporizer of tissue. We frequently use it for "curing" a filling, which helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth.
The advent of lasers has helped us to expand dental procedures into the non-invasive realm. Beams of light can repair many of the problems that required knives and picks in the past. Learn more about our laser procedures below:
