The doctors at Smileville Family Dental are proud to offer the latest technology available for restorative and periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
Dental Laser Benefits:
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
Reduced Risk of Infection
The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated
Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, topical anesthesia is used. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.

Dental Laser Uses:
Dr. Sharafi, Dr. Dadkhah and Dr. Lin can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, soft tissue exposure of the teeth, osseous surgery, and gum grafting. Our doctors are also able to use laser technology as a way to regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth. There is a much lower chance of gum disease returning when laser therapy is used as opposed to traditional surgery.
