The Two Types of Lasers used in Laser Dentistry:

Hard Tissue Laser

We use two types of laser therapies in our office. On tooth structure we employ a hard tissue laser that uses light energy to remove decay and clean the teeth, frequently to eliminate resistant stains. The hard tissue laser can often be used painlessly with little to no anesthesia.

Soft Tissue Laser

The application of soft tissue lasers in laser dentistry allows Dr. Jaleel to perform a wide variety of dental procedures that he otherwise may not be capable of performing. Soft tissue laser technology in dentistry has become so important through incorporating state-of-the-art precision into a number of common and not-so-common procedures. Dental soft tissue lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.

The recovery time with using lasers is short and Dr. Jaleel is constantly upgrading laser equipment to provide the best oral care.
