Laser Dentistry in Coeur d’Alene

Dental LaserDr. Orban always strives to keep up with the latest in dental technology and techniques; his goal is to provide comfortable, minimally invasive dentistry that helps his patients achieve and maintain excellent oral health. Among the many technologies he uses is a laser. Let’s talk more about how this tool may be able to help you enjoy a smile that is both healthy and beautiful.

Laser Dentistry — the Basics

A laser is an extremely concentrated, narrow beam of light. When it comes into contact with the tissues in the mouth, it causes a reaction. The result is that it enables Dr. Orban to reshape these tissues and treat various dental health issues.

Different types of lasers are available for use in dental treatments, but Dr. Orban uses a soft diode laser. It provides an efficient, cost-effective, and safe way for him to provide his patients with the excellent care they expect and deserve.

Lasers have been used in dentistry for almost 30 years. However, despite being approved by the FDA, they are still often considered an “alternative treatment.” Many dentists have yet to adopt them as one of their main tools.

Treatments that Use a Soft Tissue Laser

Dr. Orban may use a laser to do perform any of the following procedures:

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

It is possible to perform any of the above-listed procedures using traditional metal dental tools. However, a laser is often the better choice because it is extremely precise, making treatment as minimally invasive as possible. For certain procedures, a laser may even be able to reduce healing time and eliminate the need for anesthesia.

Of course, every situation is unique. If Dr. Orban plans on using a laser to treat you, he’ll be sure to discuss the procedure with you in detail so you know what to expect during your treatment. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about the laser itself, the nature of the procedure, and any other concerns you may have. We want you to commit to your treatment as an educated, confident patient.

Lasers provide a remarkable tool for dentists who want to use only the best technology in their practice. If you would like to learn more about the laser dentistry, please contact us.
