Laser Dentistry Q&A

What is laser dentistry?

Cutting-edge laser dentistry involves using lasers to treat a variety of dental conditions. Laser dentistry may offer a more comfortable experience since it eliminates the need for drills and other instruments that dentists commonly use. 

During laser dentistry treatments at Metairie Village Dentistry, Dr. Wyatt uses a Fotona® laser to cut or remove problematic tissues. Using incredibly precise light beams, Dr. Wyatt can treat an array of oral health issues. It is worth noting that laser dentistry is FDA-approved.


What can laser dentistry treat?

Laser dentistry can effectively treat a variety of general dentistry needs. At Metairie Village Dentistry, patients can use laser dentistry to undergo:

  • Periodontal surgery
  • Root canals
  • Fillings
  • Crown removal 

Laser dentistry can also perform cosmetic dentistry procedures that improve your appearance. Laser dentistry can successfully reduce wrinkles around the lips and face.


What are the advantages of laser dentistry over traditional dentistry?

Laser dentistry at Metairie Village Dentistry offers many advantages over common dentistry techniques. Laser dentistry reduces the need for anesthesia since lasers cause less pain than typical dentistry tools. The reduced sensation of pain leads to many patients feeling less anxiety and more comfortable during dental procedures.

Laser dentistry also minimizes bleeding and swelling following treatment. This, in turn, decreases the need for sutures. Since lasers sterilize the treatment area, the risk of bacterial infections is much lower than when traditional tools are used. Dental procedures performed with laser dentistry also tend to heal more expediently.

Laser dentistry can also address sleep apnea and reduce snoring.


Is laser dentistry the right choice for me?

At Metairie Village Dentistry, Dr. Wyatt commits herself to make sure that you receive the most effective treatment possible. After performing a detailed and thorough dental examination, she discusses whether or not laser dentistry is right for you. Children can also benefit from laser dentistry treatments.
