Dental lasers are recommended in a number of different cases. Here at Havasu Dentistry, we mainly use them to help patients who are at risk for gum disease. The energy of the laser is useful for eliminating bacteria in the gums as well as the blood, thus preventing the infection from spreading throughout the mouth and causing further damage. Laser dentistry is also useful for reshaping the gum line for cosmetic purposes. An advantage of using lasers for gum-related treatment is that it’s much easier to ensure that we don’t remove more tissue than necessary.
