Laser Treatment

The latest technology to improve patient care

Dental lasers are now becoming more widespread , although they have been used successfully in the USA and Germany for very many years.

Uses of Dental Lasers:

  • To create a better gum line around natural teeth, crowns and veneers.
  • To remove lesions in the mouth, such as polyps, without needing to be referred to
    hospital.
  • To remove overgrowths of gum around teeth.
  • To promote the healing of ulcers and cold sores.
  • To whiten teeth using a specialised whitening gel.
  • To sterilise the tissues in dental pockets and promote healing and bone regrowth.
  • To sterilise the bacteria in root canals during root treatments and increase healing.

Laser dentistry has the following advantages:

  • It can induce anaesthesia in the tooth so many restorations can be completed without local anaesthetics.
  • The noise is a ‘popping’ sound rather than the usual whine of a fast-speed drill.
  • Procedures that once took several appointments to complete, such as multiple fillings,
    can now be finished in just one visit.
  • Treatment can be more comfortable as there is no vibration.
  • Preventative dentistry can be more effective as smaller restorations can be prepared.
  • Tissue healing is faster and often occurs without swelling and with reduced
    post-operative pain.
