At The Silverstrom Group, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, believe in offering our patients treatment using the latest in dental technology. Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom employ the most recent breakthroughs in dentistry, including laser dentistry. Across America, more and more dental practices are incorporating this state-of-the-art dental tool. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists explain the benefits provided by dental lasers.  


What is Laser Dentistry?

Dental lasers use a concentrated beam of light specially designed or oral use. Lasers can address a number of dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, laser dentistry allows your Livingston dentists to perform minor oral surgery. Patients undergoing treatment with dental lasers report less bleeding and swelling following the procedure. Since the laser also kills bacteria, the risk of infection decreases and healing time becomes much faster.

Dental Lasers

At The Silverstrom Group, we provide three different lasers. Each one is calibrated for a specific task, offering specialized and minimally invasive treatment. Our laser dental care technology includes:

·      DIAGNOdent Laser: Requiring little to no anesthesia, this system enables your Livingston dentists to detect tooth decay in the earliest stages and offer immediate treatment.

·      Diode soft tissue laser: This laser performs oral surgery and provides gum disease treatment. Employing unrivaled precision and accuracy, the laser removes infected tissue and protects your gums.

·      Erbium hard tissue laser: In many cases, this laser replaces dental drills. Your Livingston dentists can remove tooth decay before placing a filling or crown and help keep the remaining tooth structure intact.
