Laser dentistry is a modern method of dental care that uses high-quality dental lasers to perform non-invasive and painless dental treatments. A dental laser is a handheld device that uses light and heat energy to target and treats tissues in the mouth. Dental lasers can be used on hard and soft tissues. Hard tissue lasers treat the tooth surface and soft tissue lasers treat the gums. Precise lasers can eliminate bacteria and infected tissues as well as stimulate the natural regrowth of tissues.
Dr. Nishan Halim uses dental lasers to treat a variety of general dental problems in his Washington, DC dental office. Dr. Halim is a highly skilled dentist that takes pride in providing safe, painless, and effective treatment using laser dentistry.
