Laser Dentistry

We've seen truly wonderful innovations in dental techniques and technologies over the last twenty years, but the most amazing of all might well be the use of lasers in a wide variety of procedures.

Gum Laser Therapy

In our practice, we use the ND:YAG Laser technology, which provides the most patient-friendly, state-of-the-art periodontal (gum) treatment there is. We use the ND:YAG Laser to treat periodontal disease by eliminating infection and healing your gum tissue.

The first step is to remove the tartar from the root surface of your teeth using an ultrasonic scaler. Next, using the ND:YAG Laser, we direct a small amount of light energy through a tiny fiber which is gently placed between the gum and the tooth. This light energy practically eliminates the disease causing bacteria and diseased gum tissue responsible for the periodontal (gum) breakdown. After the area is thoroughly cleaned, the body can heal the area naturally.

This use of laser dentistry is not only highly efficient and effective, it's also virtually painless. And since periodontal (gum) disease is such a serious oral and systemic health problem, any advance in its treatment is terrific news.

Laser Sculpting

In some cases teeth have excess gum tissue covering them, creating a "gummy smile", making the teeth appear short. With a procedure called crown lengthening, lasers can reveal a beautiful smile.

Laser dentistry painlessly sculpts away excess tissue revealing beautiful, healthy, and well-proportioned teeth, liberating a naturally winning smile. Plus, the laser seals and heals as it sculpts, making recovery fast and easy to tolerate.

Our laser dentistry patients come to us from San Diego, San Marcos, Encinitas, Escondido and Rancho Bernardo.
