What are dental lasers used for?

We may suggest laser dentistry to:


  • Diagnose and repair tooth decay and damage
  • Treat periodontal (gum) disease
  • Whiten your smile
  • Remove diseased oral tissue
  • Treat highly sensitive teeth
  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Reduce swelling and bleeding during treatment
  • Provide relief for minor ailments like cold sores


Dr. Kirk E. Kooker can also perform a number of cosmetic treatments, such as reshaping your gumline to provide a more symmetrical smile, with our dental lasers. Laser dentistry is especially useful for children because it negates the need for frightening drills or shots.
