Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is becoming one of the greatest trends in oral health care. It’s a cutting-edge technology that’s convenient and effective for cosmetic enhancements as well as for general dentistry issues. It allows your dentist to treat a variety of oral health concerns while allowing you to stay comfortable and relaxed.

Uptown Dental & Orthodontics uses a soft tissue diode laser, which has revolutionized chairside dentistry. Its treatments deliver painless, precise accuracy, and you experience a faster healing process than traditional methods offer. Laser dentistry is also individualized to your specific condition. 

What does laser dentistry treat?

Uptown Dental & Orthodontics uses laser dentistry to address:

  • Gum disease
  • Reshaping gums
  • Removing overgrown tissue
  • Cold sores
  • Preparing a molar for imaging
  • Cavities
  • Ulcers
  • Tongue-tie
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
  • Benign oral tumors
  • Sleep apnea
  • Nerve regeneration

Laser dentistry doesn’t require incisions that can create a risk of postoperative infections. It can also help prevent future oral health issues.

At Uptown Dental & Orthodontics, laser dentistry offers you the highest standard of care with superior results.

What is a laser dentistry treatment like?

During a laser dentistry procedure, your dentist uses a state-of-the-art laser system that delivers focused light beams guided by computers to treat your condition. Anesthesia typically isn’t needed. However, your dentist at Uptown Dental & Orthodontics offers nitrous oxide to help you relax during your procedure.

Laser dentistry offers you an efficient and comfortable experience.
