Lasers have been used in dental procedures since 1990. For many patients, laser treatments are safe, effective and virtually pain-free, allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience.
Lasers can reduce healing time, decrease bacteria in diseased gums and control bleeding during dental surgery. The American Dental Association (ADA) allows the use of lasers in a variety of periodontal treatment procedures, such as gum treatments.
The use of lasers for dental procedures requires special training. Shannon Oh Jamison Dentistry dentists and hygienists have been certified by the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ADL) and have received specialized training by the laser manufacturer.
Laser treatments are covered by insurance companies for approved procedures at the same rate as traditional treatments. Shannon Oh Jamison Dentistry will work with you to determine the best combination of laser and traditional treatments for your dental needs and budget.
