At our biologic dental practice, Evergreen Dental Wellness in Annandale, Virginia, we embrace laser dentistry as a cornerstone of our commitment to gentle, patient-centered care.

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry utilizes focused light energy to perform various dental procedures with precision and minimal discomfort. It is used for treatments ranging from cavity removal and gum disease therapy to teeth whitening and advanced treatments like oral surgeries. It represents an advanced approach to dental care, enhancing patient comfort and treatment outcomes.

Common laser dental treatments:

  1. Soft Tissue Procedures: Laser technology enables precise and efficient soft tissue surgeries, such as gum contouring, frenectomy (removing tissue that restricts tongue movement), and crown lengthening. These procedures promote optimal gum health and enhance the aesthetics of the smile
  2. Cavity Removal: Laser cavity removal offers a precise and comfortable alternative to traditional drilling methods. By using focused laser energy, decayed tooth structure is efficiently vaporized, preserving healthy enamel and minimizing discomfort for patients
  3. Gum Disease Treatment: Laser-assisted periodontal therapy targets and removes bacteria and infected tissue from the gums, promoting healing and reducing inflammation. This minimally invasive approach preserves healthy gum tissue and facilitates quicker recovery compared to traditional methods
  4. Dental Extraction: Laser-assisted oral surgery can significantly reduce post-op pain, infection and faster healing time because laser light energy will surgically cut and coagulate at the same time and it has far superior disinfection capabilities
  5. Endodontic Treatment: Laser-assisted endodontic treatment is the most advanced technology adopted in Endodontics. Laser light energy can reach all the apical delta area and effectively control the amount of residual bacteria otherwise impossible to eradicate that can be a source of focal infection even after with other conventional treatment methods. 
  6. RELEASE TONGUE TIE: Tongue tie release especially at the early age like infants will significantly increase the quality of life for the rest of that person’s life.  By releasing the tongue from the attached frenum when he/she is a baby, it will affect the amount of nutrition intake because it will facilitate tongue movement freely. Then while a child is developing, correct tongue placement will improve proper development of the upper arch so it can affect phonetics, occlusion, and esthetics of the person. Quick Laser tongue-tie release will help to reduce any post op comfort and fast healing.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry:

  • Precision: Allows for highly targeted treatment, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissues and preserving tooth structure
  • Comfort: Often less invasive and produces minimal discomfort, reducing the need for anesthesia and postoperative pain medication
  • Faster Healing: With its precision and minimally invasive nature, laser dentistry promotes faster healing times and reduced downtime for patients, allowing them to return to their daily activities sooner
  • Reduced Risk of Infection: Laser energy sterilizes the treatment area, reducing the risk of bacterial contamination and postoperative infections
