Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry utilizes a laser, which is a beam of intense light energy, to remove or shape different types of tissue in the mouth, as well as to reduce bleeding and infection.

Dentists have been using lasers since the 1990s. Lasers may be used alone, or they may be used in combination with other dental instruments.

When is laser dentistry appropriate?

Dr. Ebrahimi can use laser dentistry for a variety of different procedures, including:

  • To enhance tooth whitening
  • To treat infections during root canal procedures
  • To remove or reshape bone or gum tissues
  • To remove inflamed or overgrown gum tissues
  • To treat cold sores or canker sores
  • To treat tooth sensitivity
  • To find cavities
  • To prepare a tooth for filling

If a patient needs a specific procedure, Dr. Ebrahimi will let the patient know whether laser dentistry is an option.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry offers many different benefits for patients, including less pain, more precise procedures, less bleeding during dental surgery, lower risk of infection, and shorter healing times than traditional dental procedures. In some cases, laser dentistry may even eliminate the need for drilling or anesthesia.

Who is a good candidate for laser dentistry?

Not every patient will be a good candidate for laser dentistry. Dr. Ebrahimi will be able to determine whether she can treat each individual patient using laser dentistry.

Is laser dentistry safe?

When a trained dentist like Dr. Ebrahimi is performing laser dentistry procedures, this type of dentistry is considered safe. However, patients should not undergo laser treatment from a dentist who isn’t trained in the use of this technology.

What should patients do to prepare for laser dentistry procedures?

Laser dentistry procedures don’t typically require any special preparation. However, Dr. Ebrahimi will give patients any necessary instructions when the procedure is scheduled. During the procedure, patients may need to wear protective goggles to protect their eyes from damage.

Following a laser dentistry procedure, patients may need to follow specific guidelines as they recover. Dr. Ebrahimi will provide patients with a written copy of these guidelines before they leave her office.
