Highland Park St. Paul General Dentist Explains Laser Dentistry Benefits

Written by Drs. Mark and Rachel Malterud on Dec 3, 2013

Our Highland Park St. Paul General Dentist uses lasers to provide our patients with important dental treatments comfortably and quickly. We are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to treat a variety of common dental issues.

Laser dentistry is an exciting advance in modern dental technology and has proven effective for:

  • Treating periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • Removing cavities
  • Performing root canals
  • Killing harmful bacteria and promoting healthy tissue regeneration
  • Safely and effectively enhancing your smile when used in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry treatments
Laser dentistry also offers our patients a number of benefits over traditional dentistry in several important aspects:

  • The use of any type of anesthesia is usually unnecessary during laser treatment.
  • Laser dentistry is safe and effective for use with patients who have special needs like children and adult patients who fear visits to the dentist.
  • Laser dentistry eliminates the need for drilling, so the anxiety associated with the sound of a high speed drill in adults and children is also eliminated.
  • There is no invasive cutting involved, so laser dentistry results in minimal bleeding and requires no stitches after treatment.
By using laser dentistry your Highland Park St. Paul General Dentist can pinpoint the precise areas where treatment is needed. This helps us to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible when filling teeth or performing root canal therapy. Maintaining healthy tooth structure is important for your oral health and well being.
Through the use of laser dentistry we can provide our patients with efficient, comfortable dental treatment. Please contact our office for a free consultation so we can discuss the ways in which laser dentistry may benefit you.
