Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry refers to using advanced dental instruments that produce a very narrow, intense beam of light energy to make certain procedures simpler and more convenient. The most common uses of laser dentistry include treatments for gum disease, treatments for tooth decay, and professional teeth whitening.

Dr. Schroeder uses laser light to repair soft tissue — such as your gums — or hard tissue — such as decayed material on your teeth.

Laser dentistry is one of the fastest growing trends in the field of modern oral health care.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

There are many reasons why laser dentistry is one of the fastest growing, most popular trends in modern oral health care. Here are some of the most exciting benefits of laser dentistry:

  • Less pain in many cases
  • Less need for anesthesia
  • Reduces dental anxiety since there’s no dental drill
  • Minimizes bleeding and swelling in the soft tissue treatment area
  • Preserves more sections of the healthy tooth during cavity removal

With the use of dental lasers, procedures are generally completed in a more timely manner, saving you valuable time in your busy schedule.

What is the Waterlase® system?  

Dr. Schroeder uses the Waterlase® dental laser system to perform a variety of procedures. The Waterlase combines water, air, and laser energy that makes dental work safe and convenient. The laser sprays out water and air that keeps your teeth hydrated and cool, preventing overheating and delivering a pain-free experience every time.  

The Waterlase system also enables Dr. Schroeder to use minimal, and often no anesthetic at all. It’s also highly efficient, allowing for gentle procedures that can typically be completed in a single in-office visit.

Is laser dentistry safe?

Yes, laser dentistry with Dr. Schroeder is perfectly safe. In fact, procedures performed with laser dentistry are more precise and efficient than dental work done with traditional instruments. Laser dentistry is safe and effective for patients of all ages.
