We use dental lasers to perform a variety of techniques, including preparing cavities for fillings and performing complex surgeries with little pain and minimal anesthesia.

DIAGNOdent Laser Technology

DIAGNOdent is a safe way to detect tooth decay in its earliest stages. The traditional methods of finding cavities through probing and x-raying are only between 50–75% accurate. But the DIAGNOdent uses laser technology to find dental decay before it has a chance to spread or cause pain.

A computer readout is available to the dentist as he uses his light from a laser diode to shine on the teeth, giving immediate feedback. Using laser technology, we can repair and treat cavities (removal of decay), pediatric dentistry problems like crooked or spaced teeth, fix bone issues that affect your mouth, deal with gum disease, and more.

With this laser technology, you should expect to experience a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Reduced Bleeding
  • Maximized Comfort
  • Faster Appointments
  • Reduced Need for Local Anesthetic – No Injections!
  • Complete Multiple-Phase Treatment in One Sitting
  • Minimized Need for Specialty Referrals

Keeping your gums in good health is one of the most important things you can do for yourself, as research has shown that people with gum disease have an increased risk for additional health conditions, including diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Patrick Vuong uses laser dentistry to treat a wide range of gum diseases with greater precision.

Most patients also prefer laser treatments because they are faster and less painful than conventional and surgical gum treatments.
