Laser Therapy Q & A

How can lasers improve dentistry treatments?

Traditional dental surgical procedures relied on scalpels to cut tissue and dental drills to remove decayed tooth tissue. Laser technology uses concentrated beams of light to alter tissue, an approach that offers numerous benefits. 

Some of the advantages of laser therapy include:

  • Ability to eliminate bacteria
  • Less bleeding
  • More precise tissue alteration
  • Quieter treatments
  • No need for anesthesia for many procedures
  • Swifter healing

While laser therapy is not the right approach for every set of dental needs, it can be a wonderful tool for many and makes dental treatment far more enjoyable.

Many industry experts believe that laser therapy is the future of dental care, and it might one day eliminate the need for any form of anesthetic in most procedures. 

What is SoleaⓇ, and how is it used in dental practice?

The Solea Dental Laser is a carbon dioxide laser treatment platform approved by the FDA to treat hard and soft oral tissues. Some of the dental procedures that can be performed using the Solea low light laser therapy system include:

  • Gingivectomy
  • Fillings
  • Crown lengthening
  • Frenectomy
  • Ulcer treatment

The Solea laser can also be used in conjunction with scaling and root planing to deliver a deep cleaning to the surfaces of your tooth roots beneath the gum line. 

What are some benefits of the WaterlaseⓇ treatment system?

Waterlase is an innovative treatment platform that combines the power of lasers with pressurized water to perform precise and painless dental procedures. Incorporating water into laser dentistry helps reduce the heat produced in many laser treatments, preventing pain. 

The Waterlase system allows dental treatments to be performed without anesthesia. That means your dentist may be able to address areas of decay during the same visit they are detected. 

Waterlase treatments can remove decayed tooth tissue without disrupting the surrounding healthy tissue. That helps reduce the risk of creating minor cracks with traditional drilling. Fewer cracks mean fewer spaces for bacteria to invade your tooth tissue.
