Laser Dentistry in Cypress, CA
Ditch the Drill for a More Relaxing Dental Visit

Are you one of those patients that dreads going to the dentist? Fear no more. Vibration, pressure, and heat are some of the most common factors that make dental drills uncomfortable for some patients. Fortunately, laser dentistry helps eliminate those factors.

Because laser dentistry is still relatively new, only a small percentage of dentists actually use the equipment. Fortunately for our (more anxious) patients, Cypress DDS is an experienced provider of laser dentistry focused on impeccable care with a fraction of the discomfort.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Say goodbye to stitches: With laser dentistry, soft-tissue procedures that might otherwise require stitches or sutures can often do without them.

No more needles: For many procedures that might otherwise require anesthesia, laser dentistry eliminates the need.

Prone to infection? Worry not: For patients that worry about bacterial infection, laser dentistry minimizes the risk by effectively sterilizing the part of the mouth affected by a given procedure.

Reduced healing time: because lasers are often more precise and damage less extraneous tissue, healing time is often much faster

Less bleeding: due to the nature of the laser, bleeding is kept to a minimum. For the squeamish, this can be a major advantage.

Procedures Benefited by Laser Dentistry

  • Cavity Detection: using low-intensity lasers can often be used to help detect cavities early by spotting signs of tooth decay.
  • Preparing teeth for dental fillings: When it comes to dental fillings, dental lasers can often replace the need for a dental drill while simultaneously killing bacteria in the cavity, which can help improve the chance for long-term tooth stability.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: Tooth sensitivity can sometimes be caused by exposed tubules on the root of your tooth. Dental lasers can be used to seal them.
  • Lengthening crowns: Using a dental laser, your dentist can effectively reshape your gum tissue and bone in order to expose more healthy tooth surface. This is often done to aid in the placement of a dental restoration.
  • Treatment of Frenula: When a child is “tongue tied” due to a tight frenulum, laser dental tools are capable of eliminating the problem.
  • And more…
