The Benefits of Laser Therapy
Extreme Precision & Accuracy
Compared to traditional dental tools, laser tools are much more accurate and precise. This means your dentist doesn’t have to remove as much tissue, which is better for your overall oral health and also helps speed up your recovery. It makes your treatment faster, too.
Minimal Bleeding & Pain
The high-powered laser “cauterizes” (seals) nerves, tissue, and blood vessels upon contact. There are also no uncomfortable sensations of pressure or vibration with laser dental tools. This means you’ll bleed less and you won’t feel much discomfort. In some cases, numbing isn’t even necessary for laser therapy.
Faster Healing & Recovery
All of the above benefits add up to a faster, simpler, and more effective healing and recovery process. Laser dentistry helps reduce your risk of complications after your treatment, and you’ll heal more quickly compared to traditional dental treatments.
The Laser Therapy Treatment Process
Preparing The Treatment Area
Before your procedure begins, your dentist will clean the treatment area. Numbing is not typically required, but may be provided if you’re worried about discomfort, or if you’re having a more invasive procedure performed on your mouth.
Removing Tissue With Laser Tools
All-tissue lasers can be set up to remove hard tissue like enamel, as well as soft tissue like gum tissue. Your dentist will use a specialized laser, and adjust it to remove all the necessary tissue quickly and effectively throughout your treatment process.
Aftercare & Recovery
Once your procedure is over, you’ll be sent home with a set of recovery instructions. Laser therapy has a shorter recovery period than traditional dental treatments. But it’s still important to follow your dentist’s instructions to heal more quickly, and avoid complications after your procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are laser dental treatments more expensive?
The treatment will cost the same as the dental procedure, meaning there is no additional cost for using a laser. You will be charged based on what you are completing, not how you are completing it. The cost of treatment will vary based on your individual needs, so we recommend scheduling a consultation to get a more accurate cost estimate.
How long does a laser filling take?
The length of your treatment will vary depending on the type of laser treatment you are receiving. However, in the case of laser dental fillings, laser treatments tend to be more efficient than traditional fillings. Since your doctor won’t have to wait for your mouth to be numb, they can get to work right away. A laser filling can take as little as 10-15 minutes or as long as half an hour. This will depend on the size and placement of the cavity. Your doctor will walk you through what to expect when developing your treatment plan so you can rest assured that you will stay informed every step of the way.
Does laser dentistry hurt?
No! Laser treatments are very comfortable and convenient. Plus, in most cases, you won’t need any anesthesia! Since laser dentistry does not involve physical contact with the tissue of your mouth, numbing agents aren’t usually required for patients. The laser pinpoint causes a cauterizing effect within the tissue, so there is typically very little bleeding after treatment. When patients receive anesthesia, they typically leave the office with that numb feeling still prevalent. With laser dentistry, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to work without that uncomfortable numb sensation following your appointment.
Is laser dentistry safe?
Absolutely. Dental lasers are approved by the FDA and have been found to be completely safe when used by a trained dentist. Because the laser tool conducts such a precise procedure, there is a smaller chance of bacterial infection. This minimally invasive treatment also causes little to no bleeding for patients. When undergoing laser treatments, your dentist will take precautions to ensure your safety, just as they would with any other treatment. Since laser tools emit a powerful light, they will give you special protective glasses or goggles to shield your eyes. Laser dentistry is safer and more comfortable than many other traditional procedures.
