Laser technology: the future of dentistry has arrived

Lasers have been used successfully for years for a wide variety of medical treatments ranging from visual surgery to cosmetic procedures. Now laser technology allows your dentist to work faster, with improved precision while providing ultimate comfort.


When using the laser, your dentist can perform multiple procedures in one visit, so appointments for follow-ups and visits to another specialist are often not necessary.

Lasers are the most precise and versatile tools available to dental practitioners today. In most cases, the laser can effectively replace the handpiece and other dental instruments for a range of procedures including:

  • Supra and subgingival tartar removal

  • Preparing the cavities to receive the filling

  • General soft tissue procedures including smile reformation


Because of their high intensity light beam, lasers can often eliminate the use of needles and handpiece. 


Significantly faster and less painful dental procedures, less postoperative discomfort and greatly reduced healing time.

Laser Technology: Frequently Asked Questions

What is dental laser?   


The dental laser is a highly concentrated beam of light energy of a specific wavelength.  The extreme precision and intensity allows this light to have predictable and specific reactions when it comes into contact with the hard and soft tissues of the body. The use of the laser in dentistry is dependent on its wavelength.

Is the laser safe?

In the hands of a properly trained dentist, lasers are very safe to treat adults and children.  In fact, protective eyewear is the only safety measure recommended to take.

Is it really painless?

With laser treatment, anesthesia is rarely required so pain associated with needles can be eliminated.  Laser light replaces the cutting action of the handpiece. Its efficiency allows it to work quickly and precisely on targeted tissue producing very little heat and relatively no pain.  This precision makes the laser less likely than the handpiece to cause accidental  injuries to surrounding tissues, including the tongue, cheeks or other teeth.

What procedures can the laser perform?

Our laser performs a variety of dental procedures on soft and hard tissues, such as teeth and bones as well as gums. This laser is also excellent for treating all types of cavities and for performing surgery on gum tissue.

How our laser improves dental treatments?

In addition to providing ultimate comfort for the patient, our laser has several advantages including:


  • Effectiveness and accuracy of results for a shorter treatment time

  • Minimal bleeding and faster healing with less postoperative pain

  • No numbness, so multiple areas can be treated in one appointment

  • Reduced risk of infection due to the sterilizing effects of the laser
