Laser Dentistry | San Diego
Today’s laser technology has transformed the way we practice dentistry. Safe and FDA-approved, dental lasers promote healthier oral tissues, combat disease, and keep you smiling longer than ever.
Advantages of Dental Lasers
Lasers significantly reduce inflammation and bleeding, allowing for faster recovery times and quicker results. In most cases, there is little to no post-operative discomfort. You can typically go back to your normal routine right away.
Medical-grade lasers provide a minimally invasive treatment alternative to everyday dental surgeries. They’re also adjustable, making them capable of treating a wider variety of conditions.
Combatting Gum Disease
Periodontal disease is the #1 cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. Through early screening and intervention, we can combat gum infections before teeth become mobile. Laser therapy is just one example. When combined with other periodontal treatments, dental lasers safely lower the bacterial load in your mouth, treat diseased tissue, and speed up healing. Our laser therapy patients typically see better results than conventional gum treatments alone.
“Gummy” smiles and uneven gumlines can make your smile seem short, irregularly shaped, or unattractive. Laser recontouring creates healthier-looking gumlines by reducing gum height to reveal a fuller tooth in that space. Adjusting your gums creates the perfect frame for your gorgeous smile.
Treating Tooth Sensitivity
Do you have gum recession/exposed roots or sensitive teeth? Lasers can effectively desensitize problem areas to reduce your discomfort.
Laser Cold Sore Treatment
Do you feel a cold sore popping up? Let us know. Treating the area during the early “tingling sensation” stage can reduce the lifetime of a fever blister by up to 50% or more.
