What is laser dentistry?

Over the past few years, laser dentistry in Calgary has become more popular and widely accessed by patients seeking alternative forms to well-known dental treatments. The benefits of laser treatment are extensive but some of the main things that patients love are: that it is non-invasive, comfortable and efficient. Laser treatment works through concentrated light energy in the form of a beam to help treat and heal tissue. Laser treatment is used for both hard and/or soft tissue treatments. Some laser treatments include treating sensitivity, treating gum disease, and treating tooth decay. Additionally, lasers can also be used as a whitening treatment.

Laser treatment options: hard tissue lasers and soft tissue lasers.

Hard tissue laser treatments:

  1. Can detect tooth decay and cavities
  2. Can fight and kill bacteria
  3. Can help treat tooth hot and cold tooth sensitivity?

Soft tissue laser treatments:

  1. Can be used to reshape gums ie: if the gums are covering too much of the tooth
  2. Can help treat children or adults who have a tight or thick frenulum (the skin found right underneath the tongue that connects the tongue to the mouth floor) with laser frenectomy.
  3. Can help remove soft tissue folds from poorly fitting denture
