Powerful Solutions for a Variety of Problems

There are many benefits to using laser dentistry as opposed to traditional dentistry. The effectiveness of laser dentistry is contingent upon the dentist’s ability to control the laser’s output and the amount of exposure on the tissue. Precise control allows for treatment of a highly specific area without harming the surrounding soft and hard tissues. Fortunately, Dr. Tenaglia has more than 25+ years of in-depth dental experience and is highly trained and skilled in using laser dentistry to treat our patients. Using this method of treatment, we have helped countless patients successfully resolve their dental problems. We can help you, too.

Laser dentistry can be used for the following purposes, and more:

  • Removing tooth decay. The lasers are capable of removing decayed tooth substance and preparing the surrounding area for a filling, crown, or other material.
  • Treating gum disease. The lasers can be used to remove bacteria and reshape gums while root canal procedures are underway.
  • Lesion removal or biopsy procedure. Our lasers can remove tiny pieces of skin tissue to later check for cancer, remove mouth lesions, and relive pain associated with canker sores.
  • Teeth whitening procedures. Our laser can be used to enhance teeth whitening by activating peroxide bleaching solutions, thereby speeding up the overall process.

The additional benefits of laser dentistry are endless. For instance, procedures performed using lasers generally do not require stitches or sutures due to their noninvasive nature. Also, many laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia since nearly all of them are painless. There are rarely any bacterial infections that occur because the laser is a beam of intense energy that sterilizes the site. Also, surrounding tissues are rarely affected in any way that could be harmful and wounds typically heal faster using laser dentistry.
