Proven Technology, Comfortable Care

Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine and dentistry for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, procedures. Also for dental surgery with faster recovery and less pain.

Patient Comfort
Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since cutting both hard and soft tissues (teeth and gums) with the laser does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia.

Less Bleeding & Swelling
Due to its conservative, gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the laser performs many soft tissue (gum) procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-op swelling.

The laser is extremely versatile. It can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures. From decay removal, cavity preparation, root canals, smile design and gum surgical procedures and many others.

Cavity Detection.- Laser is frequently used at our office to determine the amount of damage on the tooth surface by bacteria. Laser cavity detection has been on the dental field for over ten years now ( Diagnodent )
