Treating dental issues with lasers

laser dentistry edmontonLasers have been used in dentistry since 1994 and are used to treat:

  • Tooth decay. Lasers can remove decay and prepare the enamel for a filling
  • Gum disease. Lasers are used to remove bacteria and reshape gums
  • Biopsy. A biopsy is a small piece of tissue that is removed by the laser to test for cancer
  • Lesions and canker sores. Lasers remove lesions in the mouth, and can relieve pain caused by canker sores
  • Teeth whitening. Lasers can speed up a teeth whitening procedure by activating the peroxide bleaching solution

How do lasers work?

Lasers deliver energy in the form of light. In dentistry, they act as a cutting instrument as they vaporize any tissue they contact. They can also be used to “cure” a filling, strengthening the the bond between the filling and the tooth.
