Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry

We see patients every day that have ultra-sensitive teeth and a fear of dental procedures. Are you one of these patients? We want you to know that at Stoney Trail Dental, we are here to ease your dental worries. With our laser technology, your dentist can treat conditions in a comfortable manner as an alternative to drills and other tools that are more forceful on your gums and teeth.
Laser treatments are light energy in a narrowly focused beam reacting when it hits your tissue. Laser treatments are used for removing and shaping tissue as needed. 

Types of Laser Treatments

There are two types of lasers, soft and hard tissue lasers. Soft tissue lasers seal nerve endings and blood vessels while penetrating the tissue versus hard tissue lasers which are used to cut through your tooth’s structure.

Soft Tissue Laser Treatments

  • Gummy smiles can be altered as the laser reshapes the tissue where your gums cover too much of your teeth.
  • Crown lengthening allows us to reshape your gum tissue and bone with a laser that also helps restore the teeth and provide better oral health.
  • Treating tongue frenulum attachment is made easy with laser treatment. Your frenulum is the fold of skin under your tongue that anchors to your mouth’s floor.
    The soft tissue laser lets us take this thick or tight frenulum and proceed with what we call a laser frenectomy. You will no longer be tongue tied, have a speech impediment, or as a toddler, have difficulty drinking breast milk.

Hard Tissue Laser Treatments

  • Cavity detection is done early as the laser allows us to find tooth decay.
  • Hard tissue lasers help us prepare your teeth for treatment and let us fill them, killing cavity bacteria and adding to your long-term oral hygiene.
  • Teeth sensitive to hot or cold items can be cured with laser therapy that seals the tubules on your tooth’s root.
