Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1994. No drills or injections needed! Dentists use lasers to treat tooth decay by removing the decay within a tooth and preparing the surrounding tooth tissue for the filling. Lasers are also used to quickly harden fillings making the recovery time much faster and more pleasant.

Lasers are also used to treat for gum disease to help reshape gums and eliminate bacteria during root canals. Another great dental treatment lasers are used for is teeth whitening. By using lasers in dental treatments they are less painful, usually no anesthetic is needed, reduced bleeding, and in general less anxiety involved.
