Laser Dentistry – Silver Spring, MD

Traditional dental treatments are effective at improving your oral health & the appearance of your smile, but traditional dental tools can produce anxiety in some patients. Dentistry aided by lasers is a modern advancement in oral health care & is more comfortable for the apprehensive patient; it requires little to no anesthesia & provides for a much faster healing process. If you have dental anxiety & are looking for easy & comfortable dental care, Dr. Achikeh of City Place Dental offers laser dentistry in Silver Spring.

Laser Dental Treatments

Lasers have proven to offer significant benefits for dental patients. A laser is capable of pin-pointing treatment sites like a standard dental tool cannot, which means that care is more precisely targeted & tissues surrounding the affected area are quicker to heal. Dental lasers’ varying light frequencies can be used to treat both hard & soft tissue for:

  • Gum disease treatment
  • Crown lengthening
  • Root canal therapy
  • Preparing enamel on decayed teeth for fillings

Dental lasers are also used to activate bleaching agents during teeth whitening treatments. With help from a dental laser, patients don’t have to worry about noisy dental drills or receiving anesthesia. Laser density is safe, targeted, & more comfortable for those seeking to improve their oral health when faced with issues related to dental decay & disease.

LasersPeriodontal Treatment

Dental lasers are especially effective in treating symptoms of gum disease. If you are experiencing deep pockets of bacteria beneath your gum line, getting traditional care meant that you had to undergo a deep cleaning – or root scaling & planing – where plaque, tartar, & debris are cleaned out with picks & other standard tools. Laser gum disease treatment from our Silver Spring Dental office means that you get gentle care – Dr. Achikeh easily removes decay-causing bacteria & plaque buildup below the gum line with the laser’s concentrated beam of light. Laser periodontal therapy is minimally invasive & decreases any potential discomfort. Lasers also cauterize, meaning that any bleeding or extended recovery is significantly reduced.
