How Lasers Improve
Your Dental Experience

Many people associate lasers with science fiction movies and tv shows, but it’s increasingly being used in dentistry. We’ve invested in laser dentistry in Norfolk, NE to give you more precise treatments, more comfortable visits, and fewer follow up appointments. With our laser technology, we are minimizing our need to use more traditional methods to address your smile problems. That means less cutting or stitching!

What Is
Laser Dentistry?

Laser stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. It emits a narrow beam that is used to remove infected gum tissue, eliminate bacteria or hardened tartar on the teeth, and offer pain relief with deep tissue therapy.

You’ll find that we use lasers for a variety of treatments you may need at our practice. We use lasers for gum disease treatment, tongue tie proocedures, teeth whitening, TMJ disorders, preparing your teeth for crowns or veneers, and so much more. Find out how you’ll benefit from our use of modern technology by scheduling a free consultation.

Discover the Benefits of Laser Technology

Since lasers damage less of soft tissue, treatments are more precise and there is less bleeding. There is also less of a risk post-procedure infection and your healing time is much faster.

With lasers involved in your dental care, your time in the dental chair is shortened and you avoid uncomfortable cutting or sutures usually necessary for certain treatments. Many patients who struggle with dental anxiety find their appointments are less stressful. Plus, since lasers only have a light pulsing sound, you won’t hear the noisy drill! In fact, some don’t even have a need for sedation any longer.
