At Larson Dental, laser dentistry helps our Prescott Valley dentist address a variety of dental conditions. From deep cleaning to gum disease treatment, this innovative technology allows Dr. Larson to provide individuals with long-lasting, healthy smiles.
Uses in Dentistry
Part of the advantage of dental lasers is that this laser can be used to treat a number of conditions, even replacing the need for traditional surgical instruments in more severe applications. Some of the ways our Prescott Valley dentist uses laser dentistry includes:
- Treating gum disease
- Treat canker sores
- Remove overgrown or inflamed tissue
- Speed up teeth whitening treatment
- Perform biopsy procedures
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
There are multiple benefits and advantages when opting for the use of laser dentistry. When using lasers, our Prescott Valley dentist may be able to eliminate traditional tools and drills. Additionally, lasers allow for a more precise and less invasive treatment that speeds up the healing timeline and helps reduce symptoms after therapy. The use of lasers also helps control bleeding throughout dental procedures and helps reduce bacteria in the mouth.
Perio Tray by Perio Protect is a non-invasive approach to gum disease treatment. Unlike traditional procedures such as surgery and root planing and scaling, which require constant professional maintenance, Perio Tray can help you fight infectious bacteria by simply wearing the prescription medical device for 10-15 minutes a day.
Customized to fit each patient, the retainer-like device contains an internal seal within that carries effective medication, allowing it to travel deep beneath the gums

Are dental lasers safe?
Dental lasers are a safe, effective way to treat various types of dental diseases or complications. With lasers, your treatment is done more precisely and less-invasive.
Our team offers protective gear for you to wear while we use the laser for your procedure. This way you won’t have to worry about any other potential damages caused by the laser.
How long does a laser dentistry procedure take?
The length of your treatment with laser dentistry will depend on the procedure you’re receiving and the severity of your condition. For gum disease, your initial treatment will focus on scaling away the plaque and tartar, followed by laser treatment which only takes a few minutes.
During your initial consultation, Drs. Seth or Zack Larson will be able to provide you with an accurate estimate of treatment time. This can be decided on after an oral examination in order to best meet your needs.
