Dental lasers emit energy that reduces inflammation, increases circulation to the cells which allows tissue to heal, and kills the bacteria that cause gum disease. The energy emitted is very low and won’t damage your cells so there is NO RISK of causing cancer. We use lasers only when they will benefit a specific site or area of your mouth and are NOT used on every patient. Lasers may be used for: tooth sensitivity, aiding the arrest of bone loss, jaw pain, canker sores, cold sores, bleeding gums, etc. We maximize the healing qualities of lasers by using them only when indicated by the patient’s specific needs.
