Laser Dentistry

Lasers have been used in dentistry for many years for a variety of applications – the most common being teeth whitening and the treatment of tooth decay, gum disease and some surgical procedures.

At Inform Dental we use two different types of lasers for treatments.

Low Level Laser Therapy is a form of Laser medicine used in physical therapy to alter cellular function in order to support and speed up the healing process in soft tissues. At Inform Dental, candidates for the use of Laser therapy include patients who suffer from neck pain, headaches, jaw joint pain, ulcers, cold sores, surgical wound sites. Low level laser therapy can also be used in orthodontics to help accelerate tooth movement.

The Picasso Laser: Picasso Diode Laser Dentistry can be used for procedures such as Gingivectomy, treatment of oral lesions, Fibroma removal, laser bleaching, and teeth whitening. This laser is only operated by trained authorised personnel & eye protection is provided for your safety throughout any procedure. Your Inform Dental practitioner will advise you if you may be a candidate for this type of laser treatment.

We invite you to discuss the use of dental lasers at your next appointment at Inform Dental.
