The Modern Alternative to Traditional Care

Laser dentistry is one of the many ways we help make patient experiences at our office more convenient and comfortable. Common treatments, such as for a “gummy” smile or gum disease, can now be performed with our diode laser instead of the traditionally invasive scalpel-and-suture methods. This not only allows for faster and more efficient treatment, but helps those fearful of scalpels or associated pain to receive the dental care they need. This modern alternative also helps minimizes trauma to healthy gum tissue during treatment and reduces bleeding and swelling afterwards. Laser dentistry is so gentle, in fact, that though we offer sedation, it is rarely needed. With laser dentistry, your treatment is less painful, more effective, and more convenient, with improved healing and recovery times!

Dr. Myers Talks About Laser Dentistry

Comfortable, Innovative Care

Innovative laser dentistry improves experiences for a number of treatments, though the most notable is laser gum therapy for gum disease. With the aid of dental lasers, diseased gum tissue is eradicated without trauma to surrounding healthy tissue. Along with treating gum disease, we use our dental laser to perform the following procedures:

Laser Dentistry

Soft Tissue Recontouring

Laser recontouring can improve a “gummy” smile by reshaping the gum line to be more pleasing and symmetrical, helping to balance the tooth-gum ratio. Recontouring can also be used to access areas of the teeth where too much gum tissue is present to address areas of concern below the gum line.

Laser Dentistry

Gingivectomy

A laser gingivectomy benefits patients with gum disease by removing the gum tissue that has been damaged by bacteria. The laser is used to rid the gums of diseased tissue and recontour the gum line for a more healthy and balanced smile.

Laser Dentistry

Frenectomy

A laser frenectomy removes the small fold of tissue (frenulum) from the upper lip between the two front teeth or under the tongue. This helps the lip and tongue to move more freely, allowing for better speaking and eating, especially for breastfeeding infants.

Laser Dentistry

Herpetic lesions

Herpetic lesions, or cold sores, can be successfully treated with a dental laser, which works to destroy the virus that causes these cold sores to form. Many times, the laser treatment is so effective, the probability of the lesion forming in the same area is greatly reduced.

Minimally-Invasive Treatment, Optimal Health

Dental lasers require that the doctor using them be trained and certified in use and safety protocols, as well as procedural techniques and operating parameters. Dr. Dan Myers is skilled in providing high-quality care through laser dentistry and is experienced in a wide range of procedures using the diode laser. Choosing this alternative to traditional methods can greatly increase your comfort and safety during treatment and helps jump start the healing process and regeneration of soft tissue. We can advise you on the best treatment method for your condition and help you achieve optimal oral health with our minimally invasive options!

I have been going here for over 9 years. I love the staff. From Dr. Myers to the front office, they are all top notch. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to get back in a room for what ever procedure I am having. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lauree W.

Best dentist ever! Dr. Myers and his staff are amazing. I have had dental challenges in the past and have been judged by other dentists. I never feel judged when I go to the dentist now. Dr. Myers also gives the least painful numbing shots that I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!

Chris G.

Dr meyer abd his staff have been an amazing group for the 13 years I have been there. Today specifically I was in an extreme amount of pain and they made immediate accommodations for me , and all though the procedure was not present they were compassionate , kind , and informative throughout the process. I love these people and all they have done for me!

Thomas J.

Very pleasant experience. Very kind, caring and professional. I had mixed results from my whitening. Looks like some of the bleach stuck better and therefore whitened better. They took some x rays and suggested a crown which I may look into soon. We'll see how the money flow is. But I will definitely look to them for future needs.

Michael S.

I am so glad I went to cosmetic dentistry for my procedure. Dan Myers and staff made me feel comfortable. For me, the procedure was a bit stressful but I knew I was in good hands. I felt like it would never end. Yet Dan Myers never lost patients. I have been to other dentists but there is no other dentist I would rather have treating me.

Murray L.

Dr. Dan and his staff are friendly, professional, and efficient. I rarely spend time in the waiting room. I'm usually greeted by first name as soon as I walk in the door and a dental chair is already waiting for me. No high pressure sales here, just a straight-shooter dentist and a rock star team. Highly recommended.
