Laser Dentistry

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry at Holistic Periodontics uses cutting-edge laser energy to complete several restorative and aesthetic oral health treatments. Dr. Civelek uses a laser to treat tooth decay, gum disease, discolored teeth, extremely sensitive teeth, and soft-tissue problems.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry with Dr. Civelek at Holistic Periodontics offers the following oral health benefits:

  • Reduced need for invasive procedures
  • Whiter teeth
  • No pain
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Highly effective results
  • No more tooth decay
  • Reduced mouth bacteria
  • No more gummy smile
  • Aesthetically pleasing teeth and smile
  • Reduced snoring due to sleep apnea
  • Easier breathing at night

Laser dentistry is a revolutionary treatment that offers exceptional precision and accuracy, with a low risk of complications.

Dr. Civelek can use a laser to remove decay, bacteria, and diseased soft tissues. He can use laser dentistry to whiten your teeth, restructure your gumline, reconstruct soft tissues responsible for snoring, and improve the appearance of your smile.

Is laser dentistry right for me?

Dr. Civelek tells you if you’re a candidate for laser dentistry after discussing your oral health history, reviewing your symptoms, and examining your gums and teeth. He asks questions about your desired outcome and recommends dental imaging procedures as needed to get a more in-depth view of structures inside your mouth.

What happens during laser dentistry?

You relax in a comfortable chair during laser dentistry procedures. Dr. Civelek numbs the treatment area to ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort. He also offers you a sedative to help you relax.

He uses a laser to remove decay and diseased tissues, repair tissues, and complete other periodontal treatments efficiently, in many cases, without the need for a scalpel.

What should I expect after my treatment?

After laser dentistry procedures, you could notice some tenderness or swelling at the treatment site. If you’ve received a sedative, have a friend or family member drive you home after your procedure. Follow Dr. Civelek’s instructions to ensure the best results, and attend your follow-up appointments.
