Our Legacy Smiles Family Dental dental team wants you to have the best dental experience possible, and we never want you to feel uncomfortable or nervous in the dental chair, which is why we proudly use laser dentistry at our office.

Laser dentistry in Meridian, Idaho, is very beneficial for your dentist, Dr. John McMurray. It can aid in many dental treatments, like:

-Removing decay inside a tooth and preparing the surrounding enamel for the dental filling

-Killing bacteria and reshaping the gums during a root canal treatment

-Treating gum disease

-Performing a biopsy, which involves removing a section of your oral tissues so it can be examined for oral cancer

-Relieving pain from canker sores and removing lesions from the mouth

-Quickening the teeth-whitening process by activating the bleaching solution

Laser dentistry is very helpful for your dentist, but it’s also helpful for you, especially because it can:

-Reduce the need for anesthesia because it reduces the pain felt during treatment

-Lower the anxiety in patients who are terrified of the dental drill

-Minimize bleeding and swelling during treatments involving the soft tissues

-Preserve more healthy tooth enamel while removing tooth decay and placing a dental filling

As you can see, laser use in dentistry is beneficial in many ways. If you would like to know more or if you’re interested in knowing what type of laser your dentist uses, please feel free to call our office today at 208-888-3311 . The sooner you call our office, the sooner you’ll know all about dental lasers! We look forward to helping you.
