Laser Dentistry

 Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures whilst minimising pain and recovery time. Some of the common procedures which can be assisted with laser dentistry include:

  • Crown lengthening
  • Gummy smile correction
  • Muscle attachment removal
  • Removal of benign tumours
  • Treatment of cold sores

Benefits of Laser Dentistry?

Here are some of the major benefits associated with laser dentistry:

  • Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches).
  • Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia.
  • Laser dentistry minimises bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
  • Bacterial infections are minimised because the high-energy beam sterilises the area being worked on.
  • Damage to surrounding tissue is minimised.
  • Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
