Laser Dentistry

Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments.

They are a major help in many aspects of dentistry providing accuracy, speed and improved care. This means that the patient undergoes a less invasive procedure, in a shorter time with more precise results and optimal healing.

At Lonsdale Dental Practice, we are proud to deploy a number of laser technologies helping with procedures including tooth decay, fillings, gum disease, root canal treatment and general sterilisation and healing.

Diagnodent (Laser Caries Detector)
– detects early decay that would not be seen on an X-ray allowing the dentist to adopt a preventive treatment to strengthen the teeth or seal the teeth to prevent further decay

Healing Laser – uses laser light to encourage healing

Fotosan Laser – uses light to disinfect an area

Biolase Laser – is used to cut soft tissue and can be used for many treatments rather than a scalpel blade
