Laser Dentistry: The New-and-Improved Way to Treat the Smile

Posted .

Here at Nicholas P. Kondon, DMD, Dr. Nicholas Kondon and our dental team are proud to use dental lasers! Dental lasers are small, hand-held tools that produce energy in the form of a light. They can be extremely beneficial for you because they can reduce your pain, anxiety, swelling, and bleeding. They can also help your dentist perform more accurate and comfortable treatments.

Because dental lasers are so beneficial and helpful in the dental office, there is a high chance they will be involved in the following treatments:

-Tooth decay removal: The laser can remove the decay from the tooth and can also help the tooth prepare for the filling.

-Gum treatment: The laser can reshape the gums after they have moved away from the teeth. This will improve the health and appearance of your smile.

-Root canal therapy: The laser can clean the surgical area from bacteria, which can lessen the chances of infection.

-Biopsy: The laser can be used to remove a small amount of tissue from your oral cavity so your dentist can examine it for oral cancer.

-Lesion removal: Lesions and canker sores are painful, bothersome, and inconvenient, but the laser can help by removing the lesions and relieving the pain from canker sores.

-Teeth whitening: The laser helps speed up the teeth-whitening process in the office. It will activate the whitening solution by heating the product and enhancing the effects.
