Advanced Dentistry Techniques: What to Expect with Laser Treatment

June 10, 2024

At the office of Marshlands Family Dentistry, we use the most advanced technology to provide quicker and more comfortable treatment than ever before while achieving healthy, beautiful, and long-lasting results.

One of the most significant advances in dentistry has been the introduction of laser technology. Today, dental lasers offer a wide range of applications for treating various issues affecting the soft and hard tissues in and around the mouth.

Applications for dental lasers include:

  • Removing tooth decay
  • Treating periodontal disease
  • Addressing gummy smiles
  • Crown lengthening
  • Doing a frenectomy to alleviate tongue or lip-tie
  • Performing biopsies or the removal of oral lesions
  • Curing restorative (filling) materials
  • Activating in-office teeth whitening systems

A modern approach to dental care

The word laser is an acronym for "light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation." Lasers produce light energy in a very narrow and focused beam. Dental lasers combine this energy with water and air to cut and shape target soft or hard tissues in the mouth precisely and safely.

Unlike traditional methods involving drills and scalpels, lasers offer a minimally invasive approach that can reduce patient discomfort, swelling, and bleeding. From cavity treatment to gum reshaping and even teeth whitening, the applications of laser technology in dentistry are vast and continually expanding.

A more comfortable dental experience

One of the most significant advantages of laser dentistry is its ability to provide a more comfortable experience for patients. Since dental lasers operate without direct contact with the targeted tissues and without the heat, vibration, or discomfort associated with conventional approaches to care, they often eliminate the need for local anesthesia.

And, since dental lasers cauterize tissue as they go, they also reduce peri and post-operative bleeding and offer improved healing and recovery times with less swelling and scarring.

Precise, comfortable, and efficient care

The precise nature of laser beams allows the performance of target treatment with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency. Laser procedures consistently demonstrate improved outcomes and a lower risk of complications.

Whether removing decay, reshaping gums, or performing surgical procedures, lasers provide greater control and allow for finer detail work compared to conventional approaches to care.

A caring, lighthearted approach

At our dental office, we believe that dental care should be both effective and enjoyable. That's why we use the latest technology, like dental lasers, to make your visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
