Laser Dentistry

At Chow Dental Group, we use dental lasers to provide safe and effective treatments for a wide range of dental problems and very often used them to enhance the effectiveness of traditional dental treatments. There are several advantages to using laser in dentistry. Dr. David Chow may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia in some procedures, allowing you to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience. Laser procedures can be more precise. Also, lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies; reduce the amount of bacteria in both diseased gum tissue and in tooth cavities; and control bleeding during surgery.

How are lasers used in dentistry?

Dental lasers can be used to:

  • Reduce the discomfort associated with canker and cold sores.
  • Expose partially erupted wisdom teeth.
  • Remove muscle attachments that limit proper movement (ie: tongue ties).
  • Manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures.
  • Remove overgrown tissues caused by certain medications.
  • Perform biopsy procedures.
  • Remove inflamed gum tissues and aid in the treatment of gum disease.
  • Remove or reshape gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedures.
  • Help treat infections in root canals.
  • Speed up tooth whitening procedures.
