Laser Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: Yes! Dental lasers allow Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom to remove infected gum tissue with accuracy and precision. In some cases, a procedure using dental lasers may require little or no anesthesia.

Question: Will dental lasers aid in the prevention of tooth decay?

Answer: Yes! Dental lasers can be used to help your Livingston cosmetic dentists detect teeth susceptible to tooth decay. Lasers also help remove the decay and preserve the tooth structure. With dental lasers, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom can also prepare a tooth to receive a filling and even help cure the filling.
