Laser Dentistry

What is Laser Dentistry?

All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for curing a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth-whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth-bleaching agents.

Can the use of lasers in periodontal therapy harm patients?

Yes and no. Each laser has different wavelengths and power levels that can be used safely during different periodontal procedures. However, damage to periodontal tissues can result if a laser with an inappropriate wavelength and/or power level is used during a periodontal procedure.

Will my insurance carrier cover the use of a laser in periodontal therapy?

Insurance carriers reimburse for the procedure being performed rather than the device used to perform it. Therefore, whether Dr. Kvitko uses traditional instruments for treatment or lasers, your reimbursement will be the same for that specific procedure. Before having surgery, consenting to surgery, or treatment by laser always consult with your insurance carrier to determine what procedures are covered in your plan, as well as the extent of coverage.
