Laser Dentistry

In the past, gum treatments could be fairly complex, required incisions, and warranted extensive recovery time.

However, with today's technology, we offer advanced laser dentistry, which allows for more precise and comfortable periodontal treatment.

How Does Waterlase Work?

The Waterlase laser is a replacement for the traditional scalpel technique previously used to treat periodontal issues. Waterlase uses laser energy, air, and water to provide precise, virtually painless care. The laser provides a continuous stream of water during treatment to keep your teeth and gums hydrated and lower your level of discomfort, while carefully eliminating conservative amounts of infected or excess soft tissues.
Waterlase® laser dentistry.
Dental lasers have several applications, like eliminating the look of a "gummy" smile.

Excessive Gum Tissue
