Laser dentistry is one of the most exciting new advancements in dentistry today. Special lasers are used to treat a diverse range of dental issues quickly and painlessly without the need for any anesthesia. We offer laser dentistry at Hudson Family Dental in Hudson, MA, where Dr. Michael Gigliotti, Dr. Jared Gittleman, and Dr. Matthew Gigliotti can effectively treat your oral health issues quickly and without any pain or discomfort.
What is Laser Dentistry?
At our dental office in Hudson, MA, laser dentistry involves the use of special lasers that emit narrow beams of light energy. These light beams can be used to treat and heal many types of oral health issues without the use of anesthesia or cumbersome equipment, such as noisy dental drills. Another advantage of this innovative dental technology is that many oral health issues can be treated in much less time than traditional methods, thereby eliminating the need for multiple dental visits.
Laser dentistry can also aid in the early detection of oral health threats so they can be addressed while they are easier to treat and before they’ve had a chance to become worse. For example, the laser beam can detect small pits and grooves on the surface of a tooth that is sometimes an early warning sign of decay. The laser can also help detect tartar buildup below the gum line where it is not readily visible otherwise.

Many types of oral health issues can be treated quickly and painlessly with laser dentistry. Multiple problems can even be treated in a single visit, such as several small cavities. Some of the dental issues laser dentistry can treat include:
