Laser Dentistry An Overview

Dr. Furgurson has incorporated laser dentistry into our Chapel Hill dentist office for the effective, accurate treatment of soft tissues with minimal side effects.

Laser dentistry has a number of advantages compared to traditional surgical techniques, including the primary benefit of reduced trauma. Laser dentistry procedures result in less bleeding and swelling, improving patient comfort during and after treatment.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry:

  • Faster treatment
  • Smaller, more precise incisions
  • Less bleeding
  • Less downtime
  • Reduced need for sutures
  • More comfortable treatment
  • Less need for anesthesia
