Laser Dentistry Q & A

Why do I need laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is the latest and most innovative solution for treating a host of dental and oral health issues. Your dentist may recommend laser dentistry to treat:

  • Soft tissue folds from ill-fitting dentures
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Gum disease
  • Overly sensitive teeth
  • Tooth decay

Sometimes, laser dentistry is used to assist with tooth extractions too. You can even opt for laser dentistry treatments for crown lengthening for a healthier tooth structure and enhanced smile.

Laser dentistry can also improve your gumline and resolve a gummy smile that may make you self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

At the office of Hyun S. Bang, DDS, your laser dentistry treatment plan is personalized to you and your condition. Your dedicated dentist may recommend a laser dentistry treatment with the Biolase Epic X diode laser platform because it:

  • Minimizes the risk of error
  • Promotes gum tissue healing  
  • Decreases issues with gum bleeding
  • Targets only damaged gum tissue, leaving healthy gum tissue untouched

Laser dentistry is also beneficial because it can whiten your teeth by several shades in a single office visit. Plus, because laser dentistry is so quick and precise, your treatment is often much faster, so you don’t have to spend too much time in the dentist’s chair.

Is laser dentistry painful?

Since the dentists at the office of Hyun S. Bang, DDS, specialize in gentle techniques, you can expect a laser dentistry treatment that causes little to no pain.

The groundbreaking technology behind the award-winning Biolase Epic X system is known for being entirely effective, yet very comfortable.

Most men and women who go through laser dentistry treatments at Hyun S. Bang, DDS, explain they don’t feel a thing and don’t need a pain pill.

Of course, depending on your procedure and needs, you can still opt for local anesthesia (lidocaine injections) or even sedation dentistry options to prevent pain and help you relax during your procedure.
