Laser Dentistry

    Laser dentistry employs focused light beams for precise and minimally invasive dental procedures, offering reduced discomfort, quicker healing, and enhanced precision in treatments like cavity removal or gum surgery.


    Patient Assessment and Consultation

    Evaluate the patient's oral health and specific dental issue.
    Discuss the benefits, risks, and expectations of laser treatment.
    Address any questions or concerns the patient may have.


    Pre-Treatment Preparation

    Ensure the patient is comfortable and adequately informed about the procedure.
    Administer local anesthesia if necessary, depending on the procedure and patient's pain tolerance.


    Soft Tissue Modification

    Use the dental laser to precisely target and modify soft tissues, such as the gums.
    Common procedures include gingivectomy (gum reshaping) and crown lengthening.


    Hard Tissue Procedures

    Employ the laser to perform procedures on hard tissues (teeth and bone).
    Treat cavities, removing decayed tooth material while preserving healthy tooth structure.


    Periodontal Treatment

    Perform non-surgical periodontal therapy using lasers to remove bacteria and diseased tissue from periodontal pockets.
    Laser energy may promote gum tissue reattachment and reduce inflammation.


    Teeth Whitening

    Utilize laser energy to activate whitening agents and accelerate the teeth whitening process.
    Enhance the patient's smile by reducing discoloration and stains.


    Biostimulation and Healing

    Apply low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to stimulate cell regeneration, reduce pain, and accelerate healing.
    Biostimulation can help with post-operative discomfort and promote tissue recovery.


    Post-Treatment Care and Follow-Up

    Instruct the patient on proper oral hygiene practices and any specific post-treatment care.

Overall, Laser Therapy is a more comfortable procedure for accounting for treating periodontal disease and reduces the need for large instruments and painkillers.

    It’s hard to beat the dentist I had growing up which created a positive impression of dentists for me — but West Lakes I’m Chaska has done it!
