Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry uses a concentrated beam of light to treat a wide range of dental issues. It’s a safe and effective dental treatment that has been in use since the 1990s.

Dr. Saxena is committed to staying abreast of emerging dental best practices and techniques and has received advanced training from the World Clinical Laser Institute so she can offer laser dental treatments to preserve and protect your teeth with laser precision.

What procedures are performed with a laser?

Dr. Saxena uses laser dentistry techniques to treat a variety of dental concerns including:

  • Removing decayed tissue from teeth
  • Reshaping and removing bacteria from gums
  • Performing biopsies or removing lesions from your gums
  • Treating infections during root canals
  • Removing tissue while extracting impacted wisdom teeth
  • Accelerating teeth whitening treatments

Some dental treatments can’t be completed with laser dentistry. For example, lasers aren’t effective on old fillings or to treat cavities located between your teeth. Or, if you have a large cavity that will need to be covered with a crown, you may be better off having a traditional cavity filling treatment.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry offers a variety of benefits, many of which make dental work more relaxing for you. When Dr. Saxena uses a laser instead of a drill, you need less anesthesia. When she uses a laser for soft tissue work, you have less bleeding and swelling, and heal more quickly. Lasers also reduce the number of bacteria found in inflamed gum tissue and cavities.

Laser dentistry treatments are often performed more quickly. People who have dental anxiety often prefer these types of treatments.

How do I know if laser dentistry is right for me?

Dr. Saxena provides thorough exams and consultations before recommending any dental treatments. If laser surgery is right for you, she’ll discuss your treatment options with you. Dr. Saxena is committed to providing anxiety-free dental experiences and will answer your questions so you can make the best choice for your dental care.
