Common Questions
About Laser Dentistry



Does laser dentistry hurt?

Laser treatments are a popular choice among our patients because they are relatively painless. Lasers are also safer than the conventional treatment methods because they lower your chance of infection and promote healing. However, if you are nervous, sedation is available to ease your anxiety.

Are there any side effects to laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry has no side effects when performed by a skilled professional. Dr. Sommers is extensively trained in using lasers. He also has a great deal of experience delivering this treatment to patients with positive outcomes. He will also give you after-care instructions to ensure successful post-operative healing.

Are there any additional costs to laser dentistry?

It’s easier for us to answer this question after a thorough exam. The exact cost depends on the kind of treatment your smile needs. However, we have found that patients save money on dental care because of our laser treatments. This is often because you’ll need fewer follow-up visits and have no post-operative issues.
