FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions to get to know us better.
There are many benefits, including: bleeding is minimised when treating soft tissues, as the laser encourages blood clotting; anaesthesia may be unnecessary with some procedures; wounds can heal faster; due to its laser focus, the procedures may involve less damage to the surrounding tissues; and the laser sterilises the area, so the chance for bacterial infections is lower.
Absolutely. Dental lasers are incredibly advanced, and have been found to be just as safe, if not safer, than alternative dental tools when used by a trained dentist. As there is no drill in direct contact with your gum tissue, you won’t experience any uncomfortable vibration. Lasers are minimally invasive and are ideal for patients with dental anxiety.
