Laser Dentistry

Limelight Dental prides itself on providing our valued patients with the latest dental care, using advanced dentistry techniques and equipment. Laser dentistry is one such technique that we incorporate at our office.

Laser dentistry is ideal for use in a variety of procedures, and it is known to improve efficiency in dental care as well as comfort during treatment and recovery. It can be used for patients of all ages, including patients who have pacemakers and therefore are not allowed to undergo electrosurgery due to the high risk of electrical interference.

Lasers produce minimal heat and don’t have electrical characteristics. As such, they can be used in patients who have implants or orthodontic brackets and wires.

Can be used to detect tooth decay

Laser can be used to detect tooth decay during the earliest stages, which allows the Limelight Dental team to provide minimally invasive, proactive treatment options that might help prevent cavities from forming in the first place.
Laser dentistry uses electrons, the tiny atoms inside atoms to treat a broad range of dental symptoms, focused mainly on:

Soft tissues treatments

Soft tissues treatments - Lasers offer many advantages for treatment of soft tissue problems. It is a minimally invasive procedure, compared to conventional methods that strip away more tissue. Lasers can be used to destroy harmful bacteria in the pockets below the gum line. Laser dentistry tends to result in reduced pain and bleeding, compared to conventional treatment, especially when treating sores or ulcers on the gums and lips.

Hard tissue treatments

Hard tissue treatments - In recent years, the use of lasers has been increasing in hard-tissue procedures, such as cavities and dental caries. Laser dentistry is more accurate, especially when it comes to the gums or lips. With laser dentistry, we can provide gentle dental care to patients of all ages who are afraid of needles and the dental drill. The laser vaporizes the structure of the decayed tooth. The damaged area is then filled with composite resin to restore your oral health.

Disease detection

Disease detection - Lasers can aid in the diagnosis of oral diseases by illuminating fissures and tiny pits in the teeth that cannot be found using traditional dental tools. It allows your dentist to monitor small defects. Additionally, laser dentistry is used to locate tartar (dental calculus) beneath the surface of your gums. Furthermore, laser is used to aid in the detection of early stages of oral cancer by accurately distinguishing healthy tissue from diseased tissue.
