Dental Lasers...

Our Erbium laser, manufactured by Deka, is a hard tissue laser. We use it primarily for cavities in baby teeth. It lets us fix these cavities in children without having to use a needle.
We were only the second dental office in North America to purchase a Deka CO2 laser. Our CO2 laser is used for minor soft tissue surgery. We find that using the laser as opposed to other techniques results in shorter healing times, and less discomfort.
Our Kavo diode laser is used to help diagnose small cavities. It helps us make better diagnostic decisions. It works by assigning a number to questionable spots on teeth. We can then track these spots over time to see if they need fillings or not.
