Laser Dentistry

The Future of Dental Care

When you think about the tools your dentist uses, what comes to mind? If you’re like most people, it’s probably small metal instruments and maybe even the dreaded dental drill. While these are still very useful in many procedures, Dr. Eick now has a more sophisticated option—dental lasers. No longer science fiction, lasers enable Dr. Eick to perform a wide variety of procedures with more precision, speed, and comfort than ever before.

The Benefits of 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.

The Different Types of Lasers We Use

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.
