Laser Dentistry

Council Avenue Dental and Implant Centre is equipped with a state-of-the-art soft-tissue diode laser. Laser dentistry treatments can shorten treatment, reduce discomfort, and enhance treatment outcomes.

What is laser dentistry?

Dental lasers treat numerous dental conditions safely with the use of light beams. Lasers can help reduce bleeding, swelling, and the risk of infection. Additionally, they can prevent healthy teeth and gum tissue from being affected during a procedure. Laser treatments might also reduce or eliminate the need for dental drills.

What can laser dentistry treat?

Laser dentistry can be used to treat:

  • Tooth decay
    Dental lasers can cut and shape tooth enamel more efficiently than dental drills when preparing a tooth for a filling. Lasers can also be used to support. Or to remove decayed tissue during root canal treatment.

  • Gum disease 
    Diseased and inflamed gum tissue can be cut away with minimal effect on the healthy tissue. Lasers can also help expose teeth roots to remove plaque.

  • Impacted wisdom teeth 
    Dental lasers can assist in cutting away gum tissue to expose wisdom teeth that are either stuck in the gum (impacted) or only partially erupted.

  • Sensitive teeth 
    Dental lasers can help seal tubules in tooth roots to reduce tooth sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks.
  • Gummy smile 
    The laser can be used to reshape the gum line and remove excess gum tissue to alter the appearance of your smile.
  • Crown Lengthening
    Dental lasers can reshape both gum tissue and bone for healthier tooth structure, which helps place restorations on the teeth.
  • Mouth ulcers 
    Lasers may help reduce pain or remove tissue for a biopsy from persistent ulcers or lesions in your mouth.
