Laser Dentistry Baton Rouge

Laser Dentistry Baton Rouge A laser is an instrument that generates a focused beam of light. Laser energy causes a specific reaction when it comes into contact with soft and hard tissues of the mouth. In keeping with his commitment to provide the most effective, efficient, and comfortable dentistry, Dr. Kurt LeJeune has invested in a suite of laser devices at Cypress Dental in Baton Rouge, LA.

Use of lasers in dentistry

Lasers became part of dentistry in the early 1990s, and recognizing vast benefits, Dr. LeJeune was an early adopter.

Lasers can be used alone, or in conjunction with other dental instruments and modalities. Often, no anesthetic is needed for laser procedures, and there is little bleeding or swelling for:
  • Cosmetic gum contouring.
  • Disinfection of teeth contaminated with oral bacteria.
  • Exposing wisdom teeth that have not erupted fully.
  • Improvement in cold and canker sores.
  • Relief of facial pain and muscle soreness.
  • Removal of diseased tissue and sterilization of pockets to treat gum disease.
  • Reshaping of gum and bone tissues for crown lengthening.
  • Stimulation of healing at surgical sites.
  • Treatment of root canal infections.

Additional advantages of laser dentistry

In the hands of a qualified practitioner, laser dentistry is extremely safe and precise. There is little risk of injury to surrounding tissues, and healing time is reduced. Laser dentistry may eliminate the need for drilling, alleviating concerns some patients have with the sound, sensation, heat, and smell. Overall, laser procedures are more relaxed experiences.

Dental lasers are powerful tools in the modern dentist’s armamentarium. However, there is no single laser instrument that is suitable for every use, and lasers are not appropriate for all procedures. Dr. LeJeune has the training and experience to use laser dentistry for reduced chair time, speedy recovery, optimal outcomes, and happy patients.
