You will find information ranging from what causes bad breath to how to read x-rays to oral cancer.

LaserSmile™ Dental Laser

LaserSmile Dental Laser

The LaserSmile Dental Laser may be used for many dental procedures. In combination with LaserSmile whitening gel, it activates bleaching materials for effective teeth whitening in about an hour.

In addition to whitening, the LaserSmile has been approved by the FDA for use in a wide variety of procedures, especially of the soft tissues. By using the laser for these treatments, procedures will take shorter amounts of time with less discomfort. The procedures may include removing inflamed or infected tissue; reshaping the gums; troughing for crown impressions; taking tissue samples for biopsy; exposure of unerupted teeth; removal of cysts, tumors, or tissue; removal of the pulp of the tooth; and treatment of canker sores.
