Laser Dentistry. Are the two words actually compatible? Aren't lasers part of rock concerts, sci-fi movies and making metal sculptures? laser dentistryWell, laser dentistry is one of today's most innovative, effective and patient-friendly ways to treat oral health issues quickly and precisely. The National Journal of Maxillofacial Surgery says dentists have used lasers in inventive ways since 1960. Today, Dr. James Lewis in New Port Richey and Trinity, FL offers laser dentistry options. Let's explore just a few of these amazing treatments.

What worries you most?

When it comes to your teeth and gums, what concerns you? Cavities, gum disease, and appearance usually appear on everyone's list. Well, dental lasers address many of those issues, and Dr. Lewis and his team have the skills to use laser diagnostic and restorative tools effectively for the best possible outcomes.

Take, for instance, gum disease. This devastating condition is the number one cause of tooth loss among American adults, says the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. Yet, many people avoid the very thing which would heal their infected and deteriorating gum tissue--periodontal therapy. They avoid it because many traditional gum procedures involved cutting, bleeding, sutures and significant recovery time.


Difficult and anxiety producing periodontal treatments take a backseat to Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedures. Nicknamed LANAP, these innovative gum procedures use the amazing Lightwalker Laser to:

  • Gently penetrate deep gum pockets
  • Disinfect and debride gums
  • Smooth root surfaces
  • Speed healing and re-attachment of gums to tooth roots
  • Stimulate gum and bone re-growth

Done by Dr. Lewis right in office, LANAP removes the fear and pain previously associated with treating periodontitis. Results are amazing, and patients resume their normal activities right away.

Other uses of the dental laser

Besides gum therapy, laser dentistry in New Port Richey and Trinity may remove excess gum tissue for orthodontic, restorative or cosmetic reasons. Additionally, many dentists use lasers for professional teeth whitening and to prepare decayed teeth for restoration with fillings or crowns.

Frankly, laser dentistry has no downsides. Patients and oral health care providers alike love that lasers are quiet, quick, comfortable, precise, clean and conservative.

Could laser dentistry in New Port Richey and Trinity help you?

Dr. Lewis and his team can tell you what preventive, restorative and cosmetic services are best for your smile. Some may involve today's most innovative dental tool--the laser. If it's time for your semi-annual check-up and hygienic cleaning, why not call Dr. Lewis today for your appointment? Ask about laser dentistry and its many benefits. Phone (727) 372-7887.
