Laser Dentistry

Recent advances in dental technology has made laser dentistry far more popular. Since it was approved by 1990, many dentists have begun using this form of dentistry, as it provides patients with many benefits. We are proud to say that we offer laser dentistry in our office, using the revolutionary Biolase laser.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is far less invasive than traditional dental surgery methods. This results in:

  • Less pain and discomfort

  • Quicker healing times

  • Less bleeding during and following treatment

  • Reduced need for full anesthesia

  • Less need for sutures or stitches

  • Less risk of infection following a dental procedure

What procedures can be performed with the Biolase laser?

Our new Biolase dental laser can be used to perform a wide variety of procedures. This includes more than just dental surgeries such as periodontal pocket therapy. It can be used to perform a newly-approved procedure known as pain therapy. This can help to relieve the pain of toothaches or any other pain you have in your maxillofacial area.

Am I a good candidate for laser dentistry?

In general, any patient who needs dental surgery or teeth whitening is a good candidate for treatment with our Biolase Epic dental laser. However, you will need to discuss your specific dental issues with Dr. Schoening to be sure. In most cases, treatment with Biolase will result in far less discomfort and a much faster recovery time after your dental treatment.

If you have more questions about Biolase or any of the other services we offer, call our office today for a consultation. We look forward to answering any questions you may have, and helping you achieve
