Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is one of the most exciting advancements in the dental field. Using lasers gives Los Gatos Dental Care practitioners a level of precision that older dental tools simply couldn’t provide. 

That precision means that the changes needed for your mouth can be contained to the exact area, minimizing the invasiveness of the procedures. Dental lasers minimize discomfort during your treatments and support the faster healing of your tissue. 

These are just a few benefits that laser dentistry offers:

  • Minimal bleeding both during and after any procedure
  • Reduced need for anesthesia
  • Fewer required sutures and stitches
  • Faster post-procedure tissue regeneration
  • Less risk for infection
  • Preservation of tooth structure

What kind of dental treatments can be performed with a laser?

Part of what makes laser dentistry so exciting is that these lasers can perform a huge number of procedures. Los Gatos Dental Care has both hard- and soft-tissue lasers to perform the widest variety of procedures with this groundbreaking technology. 

Los Gatos Dental Care uses laser dentistry for a variety of treatments, including:

  • Soft tissue reshaping to minimize gummy smiles
  • Frenectomies to improve the tongue's range of motion
  • Tooth preparation before a filling, replacing a dental drill
  • Faster tooth whitening
  • Desensitization of cold-sensitive teeth due to gum recession
  • Alleviation and prevention of herpetic lesions and cold sores
  • Biopsies and tumor removal

Is laser dentistry right for me?
