It’s no secret that many people are afraid to go to the dentist. Dr. Michaela Tozzi understands that and offers laser dentistry to her patients in Las Vegas, NV. Laser dentistry is almost entirely pain-free. With this advanced dental technology, there is no need for incisions, painful injections, or stitches, and there is also not a long recovery time. To learn more about what laser dentistry can do to help you to restore your oral health, schedule an appointment with our professional staff today.

What is laser dentistry?

Our Diode laser dentistry treatments use light energy to perform precise dental procedures that are usually painless. These lasers allow Dr. Tozzi to address issues and cut tissue on contact. This can remove the decay in the tooth and remove soft tissue from the gums during laser treatment for gums. Blood loss is minimal because the light beam cauterizes as it works, which means you have less recovery time. Also, laser dentistry helps prevent bacterial infections from developing since it sterilizes the area being treated and minimizes damage to surrounding tissue.

Benefits of using the Diode Laser

Laser dentistry uses high-energy light technology that is less invasive than other tools, such as drills. Cavity fillings are made virtually painless with this advanced technology. Some benefits of using this minimally-invasive technology include:

  1. There is little to no discomfort during procedures.

  2. Dr. Tozzi can accurately identify and treat dental problems, like gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth, and tooth decay.

  3. This technology reduces treatment time, which leads to little to no recovery time.

  4. Healing is sped up with this minimally-invasive approach.

  5. Patients of all ages can enjoy our relaxing environment, which makes them more likely to maintain a regular schedule of dental exams and cleanings.

Diagnosing dental problems with laser technology

Dr. Tozzi uses a variety of tools to provide the most accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for patients in Las Vegas, NV. Digital x-rays allow her to get a detailed view of her patients’ teeth that she cannot see with her eyes alone. She also uses 3D impressions to offer an accurate and more customized treatment plan for patients. An intraoral camera is used to efficiently assess overall oral health. Unlike a handheld mirror, the camera won’t fog up, which allows Dr. Tozzi a clearer picture of the tissues inside your mouth.

From there, laser dentistry helps to provide superior dental care to restore oral health from a variety of different dental problems. Regardless of the technology that is used, you can be assured that our professional team will do everything we can to make sure you are comfortable at all times.

Procedures that use laser dentistry

Laser dentistry has successfully treated a variety of dental health situations, including:

  • Cavity detection: This laser can detect cavities early.

  • Dental fillings: Lasers kill bacteria in cavities quickly and, usually, painlessly.

  • Gum reshaping: Lasers can reshape gum tissue when the gum covers too much of the teeth.

  • Impacted wisdom teeth: A laser can quickly and safely remove a painful impacted tooth and speed up the healing process too.

Will my insurance cover laser dentistry?

Most dental insurances will cover technology, such as the Diode laser. Our professional team can work with you to determine coverage and your financial obligations before any treatments ensue. During your initial consultation, we can estimate all costs, so you know what to expect at all times.
