What is Laser Dentistry?

Dental lasers are used to improve accuracy and reduce recovery time for a variety of dental treatments. Soft tissue lasers can penetrate soft tissue and sealing blood vessels and nerve endings, which enables faster healing. These lasers are often used in treating gum disease, tongue tie, and gummy smiles.

How Does Laser Dentistry Work?

A dental laser is a hand-held instrument that delivers a narrow, very precise beam of high-intensity light. The beam only comes into contact with the targeted area, leaving the healthy tissues intact. This also makes the instrument easier to control so the depth and cut are minimized, so your treatment is fast, predictable, and easily controlled.

Laser Dentistry Benefits

Not all dental practices offer laser dentistry, but Izadi Orthodontics is proud to offer this revolutionary treatment option to provide benefits to patients:

  • Minimal bleeding
  • Reduced recovery time
  • Less need for anesthesia
  • No downtime
  • No sutures
  • More precision, leading to better aesthetics

Is Laser Dentistry Painful?

In many cases, patients do not require anesthesia during treatment with laser dentistry. Patients often choose laser dentistry because it provides a more comfortable treatment. Treatment time and recovery time are significantly reduced, allowing you to return to your normal activities sooner.
