What Is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is an innovative type of dental care for a variety of dental procedures that is a safe, minimally invasive, painless process that reduces healing time and kills bacteria. This treatment offers a more comfortable treatment option compared to drills and other non-laser tools.

At Withers Dental, our certified dentist and hygienists provide a variety of dental treatments and services for all patients in the South Bay. For laser dentistry-specific options, our team uses advanced dental lasers to provide a variety of treatments, including periodontal treatments and Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy. Our Gemini lasers help ensure that your treatments are precise, thorough, painless and effective as well as minimally invasive. During your visit to your local South Bay dentist, Dr. Brian and his team may recommend laser dentistry for your upcoming procedure.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Lasers can be used for a number of dental treatments and may be the best option for a variety of benefits:

  • Accelerates healing after periodontal treatment by removing harmful bacteria
  • Promotes healing after scaling and root planing by removing diseased tissue
  • Anesthesia may not be necessary during treatment
  • Reduces gingivitis due to inflammation
  • Recontours the gum line after dental procedures
  • Relieves pain related to TMJ/TMD
  • Frenectomy – Lasers can improve speech and the feeding habits of babies, children and adults by untying the tongue

There are many benefits of laser dentistry, with most treatments completed comfortably and may not require the use of anesthetic.
