Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry uses targeted light energy to treat various issues that affect the teeth, gums, and tongue. Lasers are safer and more precise than traditional dental tools. As a result, Dr. Cucereanu can provide more accurate treatment and reduce the risk of surgical complications, like bleeding, swelling, and pain.

What services does laser dentistry provide?

Dr. Cucereanu offers a wide range of laser dentistry services, including:

Treatment of gum disease

Gum disease occurs when plaque –– a combination of bacteria, food particles, and saliva –– builds up on your teeth and beneath your gums. Laser dentistry provides an effective way to destroy harmful microorganisms and prevent the infection from spreading.

Cosmetic gum contouring

If you have excess gum tissue that results in a “gummy” smile, Dr. Cucereanu might recommend cosmetic gum contouring. Laser gum contouring is less invasive and more comfortable than traditional techniques. It also requires less downtime.


If your child has a short lingual frenulum and it affects their ability to nurse, speak, or swallow, Dr. Cucereanu might recommend a frenectomy. 

During a frenectomy, he uses targeted light energy to release the tissue that connects your child’s tongue to the floor of their mouth. Releasing the frenulum enhances the tongue’s mobility and your child’s quality of life.

Treatment of hypersensitivity

If you have extremely sensitive teeth and they don’t respond to over-the-counter treatments, like desensitizing toothpaste, Dr. Cucereanu might recommend laser dentistry. Laser dentistry can strengthen your enamel and provide an extra layer of protection for your teeth.

Treatment of oral ulcers and abscesses

If you develop an ulcer on your tongue, gums, or the inside of your cheek, you might also qualify for laser dentistry. Targeted light energy prevents ulcers from forming, and it encourages your body’s natural healing process. 

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry provides a wide range of benefits compared to traditional techniques, including:

  • Reduced need for stitches and sutures
  • Reduced need for anesthesia
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Faster healing
  • Less damage to the surrounding tissue

What’s more, after laser dentistry, there’s no downtime. You can return to work and other activities right after treatment.
