What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is the use of lasers in dental treatments. Dental lasers can be used for a number of procedures and treatments; our skilled dentists will determine whether a laser would be beneficial in your treatment. At Huckabee Family Dentistry, we can use laser dentistry to aid in:

  • Removing the decayed or damaged portion of a tooth
  • Speeding up the teeth whitening process
  • Treating gum disease
  • Hardening (curing) a dental filling
  • Reshaping and recontouring the gum line
  • Treating cold sores and canker sores

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry in Kansas City, Missouri holds many benefits that can make your dental experience more efficient and comfortable. Dental lasers minimize bleeding during and after your dental treatments, and they often aid Drs. Sam and Melanie Huckabee in completing treatment in shorter amounts of time. Laser dentistry is very comfortable; in fact, anesthetic is not needed for some types of laser dental treatment. Dental lasers lower your risk for infection after the treatment, and the results delivered through laser dentistry are very precise.
