Lasers are pretty neat, and they’re not just sci-fi either. Have you heard that we use dental laser technology at Oakmont Family Dentists? Laser dentistry is an ever-expanding form of dentistry that augments traditional oral instruments with dental lasers. Here are some of the procedures where that happens:

-Lasers help reveal your teeth and gums during restorative procedures.

-Oral lasers are used in lots of procedures when the patient is frightened of traditional tools; lasers are practically invisible and quiet.

-Injured nerve endings can be restored with lasers, as can blood vessels and mouth scars.

-We can lessen tooth sensitivity by sealing the tubules at the roots of your teeth with lasers.

-If you have benign oral cavity tumors, we can remove them using lasers.

-In regards to teeth whitening, oral lasers are regularly implemented during the prepping phase.

-Tongue ties can be treated using oral lasers, empowering children to breastfeed unrestricted and to speak clearly.

-When surplus tissue growths in the throat avoid suitable amounts of sleep, oral lasers can help.
