Long Island Pediatric Laser Dentistry

Long Island Pediatric Laser Dentistry


Welcome to the fabulous world of laser dentistry. We have the most combined experience in laser dentistry than any other office in Long Island and all of our doctors have received extra training after residency in lasers. We offer laser dentistry in all four of our office locations.

Utilizing this laser allows us to gently clean out most cavities without the need of using shots. It also allows us to work on multiple teeth in multiple areas of the mouth. Procedures performed with dental lasers are minimally invasive and preferable to conventional surgery. It is a more comfortable and overall superior treatment with less pain, fewer needles and less noise.

Additionally, the laser helps alleviate and eliminate painful canker sores and fever blisters, and frenectomies are done more comfortably and simply.

Our West Islip office was featured in a report about laser dentistry on News 12. Check out the video in the link below!

Laser Dentistry FAQs


What is laser dentistry?


Laser dentistry allows us to use a beam of laser light to remove areas of decay quickly and painlessly—no shots are needed! With a dental laser, we can treat multiple teeth in multiple areas of the mouth with fewer office visits. Children appreciate that there is no vibration or loud noise involved, making the process of treating cavities much more comfortable. Your child can return to eating and other activities right away without risk of biting their tongue or lip since they won’t need to be numb to receive treatment.


How does the laser work?


A dental laser uses powerful light energy to vaporize areas of decay and provide a clean surface for us to work with when we place your child’s dental filling or crown. When used for cutting soft tissue, the laser cauterizes as it cuts, which means that there’s little bleeding and no need for sutures. Although dental lasers have been used for about 25 years, they’re just beginning to become a mainstream treatment and we’re proud to offer this more precise, gentler way of doing dental work at our practice.
