What is Laser Dentistry?

Closeup of dentist using laser dentistry to treat teeth and gums.Laser dentistry is ideal for a variety of different procedures and can help to promote healthier and fuller smiles. We use laser technology to enhance your smile while providing aesthetic treatment to your gums and lips. This technology can be utilized for frenectomies, laser disinfection, crown lengthening and even to remove moles on your lips. The lasers that we use are incredibly safe and effective, so you can feel confident in the treatment being provided.

Why would Laser Dentistry be needed?

Each patient is different in what they would benefit from in our office. Laser technology is ideal for most patients of varying ages because it’s safe and less invasive than using scalpels and other instruments. Some of the reasons you may consider laser dentistry include:

  • Frenectomies
  • Crown lengthening
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Removal of moles
  • Removal of lesions
  • Laser disinfection
  • Non-invasive treatment for gum disease

LANAP® protocol

Dr. Bhandaru is LANAP® certified clinician.

The LANAP® protocol is a laser-based, non-invasive treatment for gum disease. Patients typically report less pain and discomfort during and after the procedure, compared to traditional periodontal surgery. This patient friendly procedure helps you get healthy again comfortably, without fear. Generally, the LANAP® protocol is less invasive than traditional surgery and helps maintain a beautiful smile line.

About LANAP® protocol

“The LANAP® protocol is a patented periodontal treatment, cleared by the FDA in 2004. The procedure can only be done with the PerioLase® MVP-7; this laser operates at a specific wavelength that attacks the bacteria that contributes to gum disease while leaving healthy tissue intact. Post-surgical recession and tooth sensitivity, which can be significant following traditional gum surgery, are also greatly reduced.”

Who’s a good candidate for Laser Dentistry?

Because the lasers that we use are safe and highly effective, you can feel confident in the work being done. You will first come in for a consultation and exam so that we can determine if you would benefit from laser treatment. This option is ideal for patients who want a less invasive choice when undergoing surgery. Lasers are customized to each individual patient to provide the best care possible.

What can you expect with Laser Dentistry?

The first step is coming in for a consultation and exam. Dr. B can discuss how the lasers will be used for your specific treatment. With each option, no scalpels or incisions are required, so you can feel confident in what’s being done and the treatment being provided. Carrollton Smiles offers a range of sedation options to make your time with us more comfortable. Laser technology has been a go-to option in our office because it’s easier, safer and less invasive than other methods that have been used in the past in dentistry.
