Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry allows Dr. Eick to perform dental procedures with less bleeding and faster recovery than is possible with traditional surgery. The Waterlase laser can perform cavity preparation, gum sculpting, gum disease treatment, and other minimally-invasive procedures.

For hard tissue (teeth), laser dentistry efficiently and conservatively removes tooth decay. This eliminates the need for using a dental drill.

For soft tissue (gums, tongue, skin surface inside the mouth), the Waterlase quickly and precisely removes gum tissue and infection. For instance, we can remove infection from diseased pockets between gums and teeth with laser dentistry for gum disease treatment. To reduce gum tissue for placement of a crown or for cosmetic purposes, our laser trims away excess tissue. No stitches are required, bleeding is minimal, and because of less trauma, recovery is often faster.

Laser dentistry allows us to provide what we consider to be efficient, conservative, rewarding dental care for our patients.

From our Rocky River location, Dr. Eick and our team welcome residents of Fairview Park, Lakewood, Westlake, and the greater Cleveland area.

Most laser dentistry can be accomplished without an injection.
