What is laser dentistry?

During a dental procedure, Dr. Seguritan uses a variety of tools. Traditional dental instruments are often necessary. But sometimes, Dr. Seguritan may also use high-quality dental lasers. Laser dentistry offers added precision. He uses lasers to target small pockets of decay or infection. As a result, laser procedures are often faster and more efficient.

Many patients find lasers to be more comfortable than traditional surgical techniques. If dental visits make you nervous, laser dentistry can make your visit more comfortable

What concerns does laser dentistry fix?

During a laser procedure, Dr. Seguritan uses a targeted beam of light to remove or reshape tissue. This process can:

  • Reduce oral sensitivity
  • Remove tooth decay
  • Treat gum disease
  • Fix tongue problems
  • Whiten teeth

Lasers can also detect new cavities, kill bacteria, and remove cancerous tissue. Some evidence shows that laser dentistry may even regenerate damaged nerves or blood vessels.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your gums, laser dentistry may help. Dr. Seguritan often uses lasers to reshape gum tissue. This procedure can help you feel more confident about your smile. 

What happens during a laser dentistry procedure?

Each laser dentistry procedure is different. If Dr. Seguritan decides to use a laser during your visit, he lets you know what to expect. He helps you review your options and make the right treatment decision. Most laser procedures are completed in one short office visit. 

Many patients worry that their laser procedure will be bright, noisy, or painful — but this is not the case. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, and most patients experience little pain or bleeding during a laser procedure.

Is laser dentistry safe?

Lasers are the safest way to perform a variety of dental procedures. A dental laser heats your oral tissue. This process sterilizes your mouth and lowers your risk of infection. 

With a laser procedure, you may not need any sutures. And since lasers cause less trauma to gum tissues, you may have a shorter healing time.
