What Is Laser Dentistry?

Affordable San Luis Obispo Laser Therapy for Dental Issues. The word “LASER” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?’) Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in almost every California industry including communications, research, manufacturing, entertainment, and medicine.

Lasers are now used in Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS‘s San Luis Obispo dental practice on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow Santa Maria cosmetic dentists a degree of precision that was previously impossible.

How do lasers benefit dental patients?

  • Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
  • Shorter healing time
  • Decreased chance of infection
  • Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
  • Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary

Arroyo Grande dentists use lasers in dental crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and teeth whitening.

If you are interested in any of these procedures, call Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS at 805-543-3016. Doctor Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy has been providing unsurpassed general and cosmetic dentistry since 1988.
