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 and tissues surrounding the affected area are quicker to heal. Dental lasers’ varying light frequencies can be used to treat both hard and 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, and more comfortable for those seeking to improve their oral health when faced with issues related to dental decay and disease.

Lasers and Periodontal 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 and planing – where plaque, tartar, and debris are cleaned out with picks and other standard tools. Laser gum disease treatment from our Silver Spring, MD, Dental office means that you get gentle care – Dr. Achikeh easily removes decay-causing bacteria and plaque buildup below the gum line with the laser’s concentrated beam of light. Laser periodontal therapy is minimally invasive and decreases any potential discomfort. Lasers also cauterize, meaning that any bleeding or extended recovery is significantly reduced.
