Laser dentistry involves using energy-based devices to complete dental treatments. LASER, or light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation, creates a focused beam of light that targets hard and soft tissues.
With a wide range of laser devices, the team at Select Dental & Orthodontics can address functional and cosmetic dental concerns.
Select Dental & Orthodontics offers several types of lasers, including:
The Biolase EzLase 940 is a soft tissue laser that can perform oral surgery procedures with minimal heat and damage to the surrounding tissue and bone. The EzLase is also ideal for rapid teeth whitening. The team combines a hydrogen peroxide-based gel with laser whitening to brighten your smile by up to 12 shades*.
The Biolase Waterlase combines water, air, and laser energy to replace the use of a drill. This device can cut through soft tissues, bone, and tooth decay with expert precision. The team can perform multiple procedures with the Waterlase, including cavity treatments, gum reshaping, and enamel repair.
Cold laser therapy accelerates soft tissue healing and reduces pain after dental procedures. At Select Dental & Orthodontics, the team can target muscle pain from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder with cold lasers.
The team performs comprehensive dental evaluations to determine which type of laser is right for your condition.
Laser dentistry offers many advantages over traditional procedures, including:
By offering a more comfortable experience during dental procedures, laser dentistry is ideal for individuals with dental anxieties and phobias.
Before your laser dentistry procedure, the team examines your teeth and gums. They may take imaging scans, such as digital X-rays, to view your tissues and underlying bone. Most laser procedures require only minimal anesthetics to numb your teeth and gums. During the procedure, you may feel warmth and a heating sensation, but it shouldn’t be painful.
