Treatments performed with laser dentistry can go a long way in helping us diagnose and treat dental issues. Approved by the American Dental Association (ADA), laser dentistry is used in a wide variety of procedures to ensure you receive the best dental care possible.
What is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry uses an instrument that creates a small, narrow laser for both soft and hard tissue procedures. It can help us detect cavities and tooth decay, and also eliminates harmful bacteria in a cavity before the tooth is restored with a filling.
With laser dentistry, you may not need anesthesia for a procedure. Lasers also reduce the need for sutures, healing time following a procedure, as well as the likelihood of infection setting in.

- Gum Reshaping
