Your Dental Laser Dentist In Seattle, WA
Say goodbye to those invasive and messy dental tools. Say hello to the high precision dental laser!
Did you know you can improve your dental experience dramatically by choosing laser dentistry? Laser dentistry promotes less bleeding and faster healing times. A dental laser is also more accurate and comfortable than the basic dental drill.
Find out more below about how we incorporate laser dentistry into our Seattle dentist practice.
Laser Your Way to Healthy Teeth!
We use dental laser technology for laser teeth cleanings and laser periodontal therapy. In the past, deep teeth cleanings involved scraping and potentially painful bleeding. Not anymore!
Laser teeth cleaning works differently. Instead of using sharp tools for scraping, a dental laser vaporizes the harmful bacteria and cleans the damaged gums. Laser dentistry can quickly return red and swollen gums to complete and total health.
You don’t have to cut or drill your teeth to achieve the perfect smile. A dental laser is the more efficient choice!
Soft Tissue versus Hard Tissue Lasers
Soft tissue lasers are frequently used to treat the gums. During a laser gum disease treatment or a gum reconstruction, the dental laser removes damaged material without harming the healthy gums.
Soft tissue lasers are also used to detect the earliest signs of dental decay and oral cancer. They can even remove small sores or ulcers from the mouth in no time.
Hard tissue lasers work to gently remove dental decay. Hard tissue lasers can prepare the teeth for new dental work by roughening them, or “etching” them. They can also excavate fissures in the teeth for the placement of dental sealants.
