Since 2013, we have utilized Biolase Waterlase laser systems for hard and soft tissue surgery and cavity preparation in teeth. Laser procedures can often be done with reduced to no anesthesia needed for tooth preparation.
For surgeries involving the gums and other soft tissues, the laser cauterizes the blood vessels and nerve endings, resulting in near-painless healing and very little bleeding. This is especially advantageous in tooth extraction and implant placement.
The laser can also be used in treating periodontal disease as well as performing root canal therapy. In addition, we have an infrared laser that is extremely useful for joint inflammation and pain within musculature of the head and neck.

The laser kills germs and prepares the tooth for the filling while minimizing damage to the natural tooth. Once the laser removes the decayed section of the tooth, it's filled with a restorative material that bonds directly to the tooth and strengthens it.
Benefits include accelerated healing and reduced pain and inflammation. This is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that helps improve range of movement and physical function. It can be used on all ages with no side effects.
Laser dentistry has revolutionized dental care and can help improve comfort during dental procedures, especially for those with dental anxiety.
