We are fortunate to be able to offer our patients this cutting edge amazing technology, the dental laser. One of the highlights of this technology is the ability to perform most dental procedures without the need to get numb. This is due to the light technology which desensitizes the tooth and calms the nerve. For most procedures, we can eliminate the use of the louder traditional dental drill. The laser hand piece is able to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy tooth structure and remove exclusively the unhealthy portion. This allows you to retain as much tooth as possible. Taking advantage of this technology will make your tooth healthier and increase the longevity of your restorations. The light emitted from the laser will kill the micro-organisms (Bacteria, Viruses, and Fungus) and prevent potential issues in the future. This benefit includes disinfecting the gums with the laser which eliminates bacteria that are lodged in the gums around the teeth.

The health of our mouth directly impacts our overall health. Poor oral hygiene allows for bacteria to accumulate in the gums and eventually enter the blood stream. They travel to other parts of our body and can negatively affect our health. The health of our mouth directly impacts our overall health.
