Dental lasers are designed and well-suited for many frequently performed dental procedures. Probably the most common use is in the area of oral hygiene, to combat and control periodontal disease. Replacing more traditional surgical instruments, soft-tissue lasers use high-intensity light to remove or reshape soft gum tissue with minimal invasiveness. This technique is very precise and effective, allowing the dental practitioner to better focus and localize the procedure (with minimal collateral involvement). Very often less or no anesthetic is needed.

For this reason, dental lasers are often used for other minor surgeries, such as biopsies and lesion removals. The precision and effectiveness of this dental technology promotes faster healing with less pain, bleeding, swelling, and risk of infection. Minimum physical trauma also tends to decrease the patient’s emotional stress, anxiety, fear, and discomfort. These and other advantages extend to other types of dental lasers that are used for other dental procedures, such as removal of tooth decay (hard-tissue laser), dental bonding, and teeth whitening treatments.
