Laser Dentistry

Laser therapy in dentistry provides patients with a more comfortable dental treatment experience. Using laser dentistry, your dentist is able to deliver a precise treatment that is more comfortable, quicker, and provides more stunning results. 

All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for dental & surgical procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. 

By using The Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser, all the advantages and uses of laser dentistry are available to patients. The Gemini is the first dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser available in the United States. The unique dual-wavelength technology combines the optimal melanin absorption of an 810-nanometer wavelength laser with the optimal water absorption of a 980-nanometer wavelength laser.
