Gain Without the Pain: The Many Benefits of Laser Dentistry
The latest technology is making dental care more effective, comfortable, and convenient. Learn what laser dentistry can do for you, from promoting healthy gums to supporting good outcomes after oral surgery.

Dentistry has changed a lot in recent decades, thanks in large part to technological advancements. With tools like sophisticated lasers, dental professionals can perform more accurate treatments with less discomfort and downtime for the patient. 

In fact, that’s precisely why our team offers laser dentistry here at LA Dentists Group in Glendale, California. With state-of-the-art technology, we don’t have to rely on tools, like drills, that might cause you discomfort. Instead, we offer a more comfortable way to get the oral care you need. 

Let’s look at a few ways laser dentistry can help you gain better oral health without the pain. 

Get healthier gums

Your gums play a huge role in your overall mouth health. Even so, roughly half of American adults over 30 deal with some level of gum disease. Left unchecked, gum disease escalates and can eventually lead to tooth loss.

Historically, dentists treated serious gum disease with uncomfortable options like scaling and root planing. We offer a different way forward. With FDA-cleared laser gum treatment, we can target the bacteria harming your gums without impacting the surrounding tissue. There’s no recovery time with this laser-assisted option and with it, we can treat gum disease with fewer visits to our office. 

Get whiter teeth

If you want to get a smile that’s several shades whiter in just one visit, ask us about Zoom! teeth whitening. This LED-supported whitening option works to break up stains, helping you get a noticeably brighter smile with a single treatment that takes just 45 minutes. 

Get better results from oral surgery

We take laser technology a step further, offering radiosurgery. With these tiny radio wavelengths, we can create controlled incisions that heal faster after procedures like crown lengthening.

Similarly, we can leverage the latest dental technology if you need a dental implant. If you have bone loss in the area where we plan to place your implant, we can apply laser treatment to stimulate the growth of new bone. This way, your dental implant has a sturdy foundation to help it last your lifetime. 

To explore laser dentistry, visit our team at LA Dentists Group. At your appointment, we can evaluate your oral health and talk with you about your smile goals. Then, we can develop a personalized care plan — using state-of-the-art technology like dental lasers — to support your healthiest, most beautiful smile.
