The word laser is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. However, common usage today is to use the word as a noun — laser — rather than as an acronym — LASER. A laser is a device that creates and amplifies a narrow, intense beam of coherent (the s ame wave length) light.

First built in 1960, lasers now range in size from semiconductor lasers as small as a grain of salt to solid-state and gas lasers as large as a storage building. They are widely used in industry, in medicine for surgery, and in communications, scientific research, and holography. The light beam produced by most lasers is pencil-thin and maintains its size and direction over very large distances.
Laser dentistry in Santa Rosa offers a number of significant benefits over traditional dental techniques. Soft tissue dental lasers are very precise, effective, and often pain free, often doing away with the need for stitches and anesthesia. Laser dentistry also minimizes bleeding and bacterial infections, causes minimal damage to the surrounding tissue and promotes faster wound healing.

State-of-the-art laser technology has allowed dentists to perform a wide variety of dental procedures they otherwise may not be capable of performing. It has also been incorporated into a number of common and not-so-common dental procedures. Laser dentistry in Santa Rosa can be used to:

  • Reduce tooth sensitivity.
  • Reshape gum tissue and bone to expose healthier tooth structure, a procedure also known as crown lengthening.
  • Reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
  • Removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
  • Painless and suture-free removal of benign tumors.
  • Low intensity dental lasers reduce pain associated with cold sores and reduce healing time.
  • A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue-tied.
  • In cases where sleep apnea is a result of a tissue overgrowth in areas of the throat (which sometimes occurs with age), a laser assisted uvuloplasty or laser assisted uvula palatoplasty (LAUP) procedure can be performed to reshape the throat and relieve the correlating breathing problems associated with sleep apnea.
