What Is Laser Dentistry?

Categories: Laser Dentistry

Moorhead, What Is Laser Dentistry? The word ‘LASER’ is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?’) Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in almost every North Dakota industry including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment and medicine.

Dental laser can now be used in some technologically-advanced Fargo dental practices on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow your Fargo cosmetic dentist a degree of precision that was previously impossible.

How do lasers benefit our Moorhead dental patients?

  • Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
  • Shorter healing time
  • Decreased chance of infection
  • Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
  • Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary

Fargo dentists use lasers in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.

If you are interested in any of these procedures, call Designer Smiles at (701) 566-5063. Dr. Dennis Hetland has been providing unsurpassed general and cosmetic dentistry since 1996.

The latest dental technology is useless without the skill and experience necessary to deliver the best possible outcomes. Let us show you some photos of the results we routinely achieve at Designer Smiles in Fargo.
