Laser Treatment

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment in dentistry involves the use of concentrated light energy to perform various dental procedures with precision and efficiency. This cutting-edge technology allows for targeted treatment of specific areas in the mouth while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. Laser dentistry is renowned for its versatility, effectiveness, and ability to provide patients with a more comfortable dental experience.

Laser Dentistry Procedure

During a laser treatment procedure at West Valley Natural Dentistry, our experienced dentist will begin by carefully assessing your dental needs and determining the appropriate laser settings for your treatment. Depending on the specific procedure, the dentist will then use a handheld laser device to deliver concentrated beams of light energy to the targeted area of the mouth. The laser energy interacts with the tissues, removing or reshaping them with precision and minimal discomfort. Laser treatment typically involves less bleeding, swelling, and post-operative pain compared to traditional methods, allowing for faster healing and recovery times.

Benefits of Laser Treatment

Laser treatment offers numerous benefits for patients undergoing various dental procedures. Some of the key benefits include:

Minimally Invasive

Laser treatment is minimally invasive, requiring less cutting and trauma to the surrounding tissues compared to traditional methods. This results in less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort during and after the procedure.


Laser technology allows for precise targeting of specific areas in the mouth, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissues. This precision ensures more accurate treatment and better outcomes for patients.

Reduced Discomfort

Laser treatment often involves less discomfort during and after the procedure, reducing the need for anesthesia and post-operative pain medication. Patients experience less pain and discomfort, leading to a more comfortable dental experience.

Faster Healing

With laser treatment, patients experience faster healing times compared to traditional methods. The focused nature of laser energy promotes tissue regeneration and reduces the risk of infection, allowing patients to return to their daily activities sooner.


Laser technology is versatile and can be used for a wide range of dental procedures, including gum disease treatment, cavity removal, soft tissue surgeries, and cosmetic enhancements. This versatility allows dentists to address multiple dental issues with a single tool, streamlining the treatment process for patients.

Improved Accuracy

Laser treatment offers improved accuracy and control during dental procedures, allowing dentists to perform complex treatments with greater precision. This results in better clinical outcomes and higher patient satisfaction rates.

Reduced Anxiety

For patients with dental anxiety or fear of needles, laser treatment offers a more comfortable and relaxing alternative to traditional methods. The gentle nature of laser energy helps alleviate anxiety and promotes a more positive dental experience.

Overall, laser treatment provides numerous benefits for patients, including minimally invasive procedures, precise treatment targeting, reduced discomfort, faster healing times, versatility in treatment options, improved accuracy, and reduced anxiety. These benefits make laser dentistry an attractive option for patients seeking high-quality dental care with enhanced comfort and convenience. Call us to learn more.

Uses of Laser Treatment

Nightlase for Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Nightlase is a revolutionary laser treatment that addresses snoring and sleep apnea by strengthening and tightening the tissues of the throat. The laser energy stimulates collagen production, resulting in improved airway function and reduced snoring and sleep apnea symptoms. Nightlase is a non-invasive alternative to traditional treatments such as CPAP therapy, offering patients a more comfortable and effective solution for better sleep quality.

Liplase for More Youthful and Colorful Lips

Liplase utilizes laser technology to stimulate collagen production and enhance the natural color and fullness of the lips. This non-invasive treatment rejuvenates the appearance of the lips, making them appear more youthful, plump, and vibrant. Liplase is an excellent option for patients seeking to enhance their smile and boost their confidence without the need for injectable fillers or surgery.

Smoothlase for Reducing Aging Lines in the Face and Jowl

Smoothlase targets fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and jowl area, stimulating collagen remodeling for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment effectively reduces the signs of aging without the need for injections or invasive procedures. Smoothlase is ideal for patients looking to achieve natural-looking results and restore a more youthful appearance to their face.

Anesthesia-Free Fillings

Laser technology allows for precise removal of decayed tooth structure without the need for anesthesia, providing a more comfortable experience for patients. Anesthesia-free fillings utilize laser energy to gently remove decay and prepare the tooth for a filling, minimizing discomfort and preserving more healthy tooth structure. This innovative approach is ideal for patients with dental anxiety or sensitivity to anesthesia.

Gum Tissue Remodeling

Laser treatment can reshape and contour the gum tissue, improving the appearance of a gummy smile or uneven gum line. Gum tissue remodeling utilizes laser energy to remove excess gum tissue and create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile. This minimally invasive procedure results in minimal discomfort and faster healing compared to traditional gum surgery.

Tongue and Lip Tie Release

Laser therapy offers a safe and effective method for releasing tongue and lip ties, improving speech and oral function in both children and adults. Tongue and lip tie release involves using laser energy to precisely cut the tight tissue that restricts movement of the tongue or lips. This procedure can alleviate breastfeeding difficulties, speech impediments, and other issues caused by tongue and lip ties, allowing patients to achieve optimal oral function and comfort.
