About Dental Lasers:

Dental lasers can improve your oral health with their ability to kill bacteria, reduce inflammation, and help your gums heal better. These dental lasers are highly focused beams of light that can be used to cut, remove, or shape tissue. In certain dental cases, lasers can also be used to remove decay, treat gum disease, perform root canals, and even whiten teeth.

The dental hygiene lasers we use at Jefferson Dental & Orthodontics are absolutely painless and require no numbing. They are also completely safe and can be used on both children and pregnant patients.

The laser kills bacteria that will be loosened up during your teeth cleaning so you don’t swallow it, allowing it to enter your bloodstream. These lasers also reduce tooth sensitivity and bleeding as well as aid in reducing inflammation.

Lasers for teeth cleaning

For a regular cleaning:

During a regular laser cleaning, your hygienist will simply move the laser along your gum line to kill bacteria and promote gum healing. There is virtually no sensation and no pain. You shouldn’t feel a thing!

For a deep cleaning/periodontal therapy:

These dental lasers are also amazing when it comes to a non-invasive alternative to gum surgery, which is usually needed for severe periodontal disease. The laser can reach bacteria that dental instruments cannot, making it a very effective way to treat gum disease. The dental laser also creates a healthy environment for your gum to reattach to your tooth and significantly reduces bleeding and even promotes healing. Most of our patients see drastic improvement in their gum health and appearance in just a few days after treatment.

During a periodontal therapy appointment, your hygienist will point the tip of the laser along your gum line, between your teeth, and in between your teeth and your gums to reduce bacteria and stimulate blood flow and healing.

At Jefferson Dental & Orthodontics, laser therapy for a regular cleaning or for a cold sore starts at only $50! Pricing may vary based on the state of your gum health and will be discussed with you prior to starting treatment.

If you’re dealing with cold sores on your lips or around your mouth, laser treatment can help speed up the healing process and provide relief from symptoms such as pain and itching. With laser treatment, the outbreak will also stop getting worse, meaning you shouldn’t need additional treatment. The procedure takes only a few minutes and the cold sore typically clears up in 3-5 days. The best part? The process is totally painless and costs just $50.

When your hygienist removes the plaque and bacteria buildup between your teeth and gums, it can leave a visible gap where the plaque was sitting. This gap is only temporary, but can be helped along by our laser treatment, which helps your gums heal and reattach to your teeth faster. The laser treatment also eliminates remaining bacteria, preventing it from entering your bloodstream and causing further problems.

  • Soft tissue lasers are a specialized type of dental laser used for procedures that involve the soft tissues in the mouth, such as the gums. These lasers are specifically designed to target and remove soft tissue with extreme precision, making them ideal for procedures like gum reshaping and removal of excess tissue. The use of soft tissue lasers can result in faster healing times and less discomfort for patients compared to traditional surgical techniques.
  • Hard tissue lasers are similar to soft tissue lasers, but they are used to cut through hard tissues in the mouth, such as the teeth. These lasers use a highly focused beam of light to remove small amounts of tooth structure for procedures like fillings, crown lengthening, and reshaping of the teeth. Hard tissue lasers are also less invasive resulting in a more comfortable experience for the patient.

Overall, laser dentistry offers a number of benefits for patients, including reduced pain and discomfort, faster healing times, and improved precision and versatility in dental procedures. At Jefferson Dental & Orthodontics, we are committed to providing our patients with the latest technology, like lasers, to improve their health and overall experience. After you try laser dentistry, you won’t ever want to go without it!
