What to Expect

Our dentist seeks first to understand your unique needs to map a personalized treatment plan for you. To perform a soft tissue laser procedure, Dr. Amy Nabi uses a laser as a cutting instrument. The laser works by vaporizing any soft tissue that it comes into contact with.

Our dentist carefully moves the laser across the treatment site to achieve the desired results. Since laser dentistry doesn’t involve cutting through tissue with traditional tools such as scalpels, you can expect minimal bleeding and pain. If you usually experience fear of the dentist or dental anxiety, our dentist may sedate you during your procedure to ensure a smooth and relaxed experience.

Soft tissue laser dentistry is safe for both adults and children. In many cases, laser dentistry doesn’t require anesthesia.
