Laser Dentistry Q&A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry involves the use of advanced dental technology to create a more comfortable, relaxing and painless experience for patients. The technology is versatile and can be used for a wide range of procedures.

The Solea dental laser, for example, allows the Avant Garde dentists to effectively remove tooth decay, improve the teeth whitening procedure and perform fillings typically without anesthesia.

With laser treatments, there’s no vibration, heat or pressure that often causes discomfort during dental procedures.

What dental procedures can be performed with laser technology?

The Avant Garde dentists use lasers in procedures to place:

  • Veneers
  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Dental implants

They’re also used for teeth whitening and to treat gum disease.

Teeth whitening

With the use of lasers, teeth can be transformed up to eight shades whiter in just one sitting. The lasers activate a special whitening solution that’s placed on your teeth and yields impressive results within an hour.

Laser gum surgery

General dentistry has advanced tremendously in its ability to treat and prevent gum disease. Lasers have now made it even better. The traditional method of treating gum disease involves pulling the gums away from the teeth and using metal tools to scrape off bacteria, tartar and plaque that’s underneath the gums.

Lasers, instead, use laser energy to break up the plaque and tartar, removing the irritant that’s causing gum disease.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

A primary benefit of using a dental laser is patient comfort and the reduced need for local anesthesia, since the procedure significantly reduces pain. Many patients are drawn to laser dentistry because it’s quick and effective and produces the best results.

Advanced dental technology like Solea also allows for better precision and accuracy to specifically target areas of your mouth. The Solea laser itself is about nine-millionths of a meter — about one-eighth the size of a human hair. Using the Solea laser to place a filling, your dentist won’t have to use any anesthesia.

With traditional dental tools, a slip of the dentist’s hand might irritate the surrounding tissue, but the laser is completely accurate, safe and comfortable. Lasers can also be used to help stop bleeding in a more intensive procedure, making messy gauze less necessary.
