The many purposes of laser dentistry

Lasers are used in many areas of medicine and are becoming more integrated into dentistry. Our team at Portland Dental is excited to incorporate laser dentistry into our office for various benefits.

How is laser dentistry used at Portland Dental?

Drs. Kaveendra Ranasinghe and Cameron Schwab utilize lasers in our office for a variety of services. These include the following:

  • Treating gum disease. Laser periodontal therapy allows patients with gum disease to effectively treat the infection by targeting bacteria in the mouth. This treatment is often combined with antibiotic medication to restore a healthier smile!
  • Treating canker sores and cold sores. Both of these oral lesions can be treated thanks to laser light energy, bringing you comfort and confidence in a shorter period.
  • Boosting professional teeth whitening. Our in-office whitening integrates laser light energy to remove deep staining and discoloration within the natural tooth enamel, ensuring dramatic results.
