What Laser Dentistry Can Do

Laser dentistry enables us to cut into tissue and seal the incision simultaneously. This means your child will hardly bleed and will likely heal extremely quickly.

Laser dentistry has been used for the following, and more:

  • Gum reshaping
  • Identifying cavities
  • Treating gum disease
  • Exposing wisdom teeth
  • Treating root canal infections
  • Rectifying restricted tongue movement
  • Treating canker sore and cold sore pain

    The Many Benefits

    Laser dentistry is especially helpful when it comes to dealing with childrenand teens. The procedures tend to go very smoothly and are known for often being the most comfortable and fastest-healing option for patients of all ages.

    Other benefits include:

    • Anesthesia is not always necessary
    • Patients don’t typically require oral stitches
    • The laser sterilizes the gums, which keeps infections at bay
    • Patients lose little blood and face a straightforward healing process

      Nothing but the Best for Your Children

      Your child’s health and comfort are incredibly important to you, and that makes it very important to us as well. As such, we only use the most advanced and effective technology on the market. Dental procedures don’t have to be an intimidating or stressful ordeal. Dr. J Shahangian’s dental practice is founded on the belief that children should be able to develop excellent oral health in a comfortable environment that enables them to feel safe and happy.
