Laser Dentistry in San Francisco

Laser dentistry is one of dentistry’s latest advances. Laser dentistry can be used for both tooth and soft tissue related procedures. Oftentimes no local anesthesia is required. For soft tissue (surgical) procedures it eliminates the need for suturing and healing is much faster.

Laser dentistry is FDA approved and safe for dental treatment. Laser dentistry may cause less pain in certain treatments and reduce the need for anesthesia. Dental lasers have been shown to be safe and effective for treating both children and adults.

Laser dentistry works by delviering energy in the form of light. Depending on the intended result, this energy travels at different wavelengths and is absorbed by a “target.” In dentistry, these laser targets can be enamel, decay, gum tissue, or whitening enhancers. Each one absorbs a different wavelength of light while reflecting others.

Laser dentistry can be used in treatment for periodontal (gum related care), pediatric procedures, Apthous Ulcers (canker sores), frenectomies (tongue-tie release) without anesthesia or sutures, crown lengthening, gingivectomies and other gum corrections. Sunset Dentistry uses laser dentistry treatment for soft tissues only.
