Understanding dental laser treatment in Brookline, MA

Laser Treatment in Brookline, MA

At Alpha Plus Dental Center in Brookline, MA, we provide dental services to improve the health and beauty of our patients’ smiles. We are proud to offer some of the newest techniques and state of the art technology available, which allows us to deliver best in class dental care. One of these advanced technologies is laser dentistry.

What is laser dentistry?

Laser technology has been used by doctors for many years in dermatology and surgery. Because of its positive influence on results, there has been a natural progression into dentistry. Laser technology can help us improve oral health and the appearance of the smile.

How we use laser dentistry at Alpha Plus Dental:

  • Tooth and gum cleanings
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Filling preparation
  • Teeth whitening

Laser dentistry for gum disease treatment

One of the most effective ways to use lasers in dentistry is for treatment of gum disease. Traditional forms of gum disease treatment such as scaling and root planing can be uncomfortable for the patient.

Laser dentistry is revolutionary because it is much less invasive than alternative methods and has extremely positive outcomes. Laser treatment allows us to effectively eliminate any infection, and thus, reduce the dependency on antibiotics for treatment.

During laser gum therapy we remove diseased tissue and plaque while the healthy gum tissue remains untouched. In conjunction with the laser, an ultrasonic device is used to remove any plaque and tartar around the tooth root. The laser is then used one more time to address any remaining diseased tissue. After the procedure, the gum tissue will heal and grow back around the tooth. Since there is no cutting or sutures with laser gum therapy, healing is often much faster than alternative treatments.

At Alpha Plus Dental, we are committed to providing safe and effective dental services using state of the art technology such as lasers. If you are in the Brookline, MA area, we invite you to call our office at (617) 274-8494 and learn more about the benefits of laser dentistry.

I drive over an hour from Cape Cod for all my dental work because Dr. Kovtun is one of the few Biological dentists around. Not only is he a master at dentistry but he offers a healthier holistic approach to oral health that is so important to me. Often times, conventional dentists overlook at the importance or how oral health effects the entire body. He and his staff are super nice and I'm glad I found them!! Read More

Have been a patient here for quite a while now. It was hard to find a dentist that I trusted in the area, but I've really enjoyed this practice. They tend to be conservative with their assessment, which I really value - no unnecessary treatments, and my teeth feel and look great. Read More

Dr. Kovtun is great. I chipped my 7-year molar, and he was able to fit me in the very next morning! He safely, quickly, and painlessly removed my old amalgam filling and prepped my tooth with a temporary fix while I wait for a beautiful new permanent one. He is knowledgeable, informative, and accomodating. The staff is super-competent and friendly. I will definitely be scheduling other dental procedures here. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
