Laser Dentistry

Safe, Effective and Cutting-Edge Dental Treatments

Lasers have been used for more than 20 years to safely and effectively treat a number of dental issues. Several dental problems can be managed using laser dentistry:

  • Tooth decay: Lasers can remove decay and prepare the tooth for filling.
  • Gum disease: Lasers can remove bacteria caught between the gum tissue and tooth.
  • Cancer screening and lesion removal: Dentists can use lasers to remove a small amount of tissue for a biopsy if cancer is suspected. Also, lasers can remove and reduce future outbreaks of canker sores.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Lasers are often used as an alternative to traditional dental procedures and surgeries for the following reasons:

  • Eliminates or reduces the need for anesthesia
  • Shortens recovery time after treatment
  • Helps ease patient anxiety
  • Keeps more healthy tissue intact
  • Results in less bleeding and inflammation following treatment

In some cases, traditional treatments are necessary, however, lasers can be combined with traditional treatments for an optimal solution. Dr. Edeer and the Aesthetic Design Smile team will be happy to discuss the options with you.
