Laser Dentistry Washington DC

The future of modern dentistry is now available with Dr. Cobb. Using Laser technology, Dr. Cobb offers his patients state of the art dental care. It is estimated that fewer than 10% of dentists have incorporated laser dentistry techniques into their practices and treatments.

Dental lasers allow Dr. Cobb to perform many soft tissue procedures that traditionally require surgery. Laser dentistry offers a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. Dr. Cobb is able to target an isolated area of the mouth when using a dental laser, reducing the need for anesthesia and limiting bleeding and swelling. Patients experience little if any postoperative pain following use of a laser. Also, soft tissue lasers kill bacteria and stimulate regrowth of new tissue helping patients heal faster.

Using dental lasers, Dr. Cobb is able to reshape gum tissue and expose healthy tooth structure, improving the appearance of a “gummy smile” and creating a strong foundation for dental restorations. Dental lasers are helpful in a number of cosmetic, general and restorative dental procedures. Reducing the need for uncomfortable drills and other painful tools, dental lasers ease patient anxiety, making your visit to the dentist more relaxing and less stressful.
