Laser Dentistry

We are proud to offer laser dentistry, which uses cutting edge technology to provide more comfortable, precise, and efficient dental care. NV Microlaser® is used for a variety of procedures, including:

  • Crown lengthening
  • Gingival (gum) resculpting
  • Easing tongue and cheek attachments
  • Cold sores and canker sores
  • Gum disease therapy

Are Lasers safe?

Diode lasers have been used in dentistry for over twenty years. Each year, they are improved upon with more sophisticated technology. Dental lasers are also required to comply with international safety regulations. You will be provided with required safety glasses before any laser procedure. They are specially designed to protect your eyes for added peace of mind.

What are the benefits?

Laser dentistry has a number of benefits, but one of the most important is patient comfort. No one likes to get shots, or have sore gums and teeth. Since most patients do not need anesthesia, there are no painful shots or numb lips afterward. The NV Microlaser® actually aids in the clotting of exposed blood vessels, which means less bleeding and less post-operative swelling. This also reduces overall healing time, as well as the need for pain medication.

The NV Microlaser® is also used to promote gingival health by reducing periodontal pockets. Before, this usually required gum surgery; with laser dentistry, there is no need for painful stitches or sutures. Other patients feel they have a “gummy” smile or that their teeth look too short. Laser dentistry allows your dentist to reshape the gums with little trauma to this sensitive area of the mouth. The end result is teeth that appear longer, making your smile more attractive.

It is clear that laser dentistry has become the ideal choice for patients – 97% of people who have had NV Microlaser® treatment would recommend it to their friends and family! Do you live in or around Rochester? Call us today to schedule an appointment and find out more about laser dentistry.
