Laser Dentistry


Laser dentistry is an increasingly popular technique that involves the use of a narrow, concentrated beam of light to treat various dental conditions. Laser dentistry at Salem Periodontal Specialists, PC has many benefits and is a preferred method of treatment for many patients because it can increase comfort, improve results, and reduce the not-so-fun parts of dental treatment such as pain, noise, and vibration.

Laser dentistry is a safe, highly precise method of treatment. The laser can be adjusted to target very specific areas of the mouth, which means that the surrounding tissues are not affected. This results in a more precise area of effect, and reduces the risk of damage to healthy tissues.


Laser dentistry can provide safe and effective treatment for a variety of dental conditions, including tooth decay, soft tissue procedures, and bone reshaping. The laser can also be used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the aesthetics of the mouth.

With laser treatment, we can reshape the gums or remove excess tissue where needed, resulting in a healthier, more attractive smile. Lasers can also be used to whiten teeth, reducing the appearance of stains and discoloration in just a short amount of time.


One of the most significant benefits of laser dentistry is that it is minimally invasive. Traditional dental procedures often require drilling or cutting, which can be uncomfortable or even painful for some patients. Laser dentistry, on the other hand, uses a focused beam of light to precisely target and treat the intended area without the need for cutting or drilling. Laser dentistry from Salem Periodontal Specialists, PC increases precision and reduces bleeding, and can make your dental procedures less painful while requiring less anesthesia.

Another way you benefit from laser dentistry is reduced treatment and healing time. Using lasers, it’s possible to get more treatment completed in fewer appointments. And because our laser procedures are minimally invasive, treatment is less traumatic to the surrounding tissues, leading to faster healing times. As a bonus, lasers have been shown to stimulate tissue regeneration, which can further enhance the healing process. This means that after treatment you can return to your daily activities more quickly and with less discomfort.

The use of lasers in dentistry has also been shown to reduce the risk of infection. The high-energy light used in our laser procedures can sterilize the affected area, reducing the risk of bacterial growth and infection. This means that you’re less likely to experience complications or require additional treatment.
