What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry refers to dental procedures and treatments involving the utilization of specialized laser technology. For example, Dr. Burman can use precise and safe, controlled laser energy to remove or alter hard and soft tissues.

Many decades ago, the power and impressive abilities of lasers were introduced to the field of dentistry. Laser dentistry can often help you achieve a better treatment outcome.

Some lasers cut harder tissues in the mouth, such as your bone and teeth, while others, by design, work on soft tissues.

What dental treatments involve lasers?

Laser technology has over 20 uses in dentistry that are cleared by the FDA and Dr. Burman was instrumental in the FDA trials for the use of an Erbium: YAG laser for the removal of decay. Currently, he incorporates laser technology for several purposes, such as to:

  • Cut and remove soft gum tissue
  • Remove tooth decay
  • Reshape the gums for cosmetic purposes
  • Remove excess gum tissue and release overly tight muscle attachments in your mouth
  • Prepare cavities for filling placement
  • Prepare the tooth for a root canal
  • Treat cold sores, oral ulcers, gum infection, and periodontal disease
  • Release tongue attachment for someone who is tongue-tied
  • Remove non-metal crowns more conservatively and quickly
  • Disinfection and D
  • Reduce wrinkles, increase collagen, plump lips, tighten the skin under the chin and neck

Burman Dental, L.L.C., can also use lasers for gum recontouring, placing veneers, fillings, dental implants, crowns, fibroma removal, gingivectomy, laser gum surgeries, and frenectomy procedures.

Dr. Burman can use laser technology to remove the infected gum tissue lining around your teeth and support healthy gum tissue to treat periodontal disease.

What are the advantages of laser dentistry?

The use of lasers in dental procedures and treatments delivers myriad benefits, such as:

  • More efficiency
  • A reduction in bleeding and swelling during and following surgical procedures
  • Less discomfort and less downtime
  • Complete efficient multi-quadrant dentistry

Dr. Burman can complete multiple fillings in a shorter amount of time and soft tissue procedures usually in one single visit using laser dentistry. It often allows patients to leave the dental office without the numb feeling.

Laser dentistry can help to create a more relaxing, comfortable, and painless experience for patients. The versatile technology delivers unique wavelengths, depending on the procedure. With laser treatments, there’s no heat, vibration, or pressure that often causes discomfort during traditional dental procedures.
