Laser Technology at Koenigsknecht Dentistry

laser used at Koenigsknecht Dentistry

Our laser is about the size of a mechanical pencil, which is perfect for working within the confines of the mouth.

We have recently begun offering treatment of cold sores, canker sores and tooth sensitivity using a laser at our dental office. Dr. Nick and Dr. Jonathan received certification from the World Clinical Laser Institute to offer this emerging technology for our patients. Patients who begin to feel the tingling sensation of a forming cold sore, who have a canker sore currently or patients who find they have sensitivity to hot, cold, sweets or while brushing their teeth, may find almost immediate relief from laser treatment. While we cannot give a guarantee, some studies have shown that those suffering from a history of cold sores find that they don’t come back after the laser treatment.

The treatment is very fast. Using a diode laser manufactured by Biolase, your doctor will apply the laser to the affected tooth or place in your mouth. Patients may experience a slight warming sensation.

If you have any of the above symptoms, don’t hesitate to call the office or talk to your hygienist or doctor at your next visit. We are happy to answer any questions you have about laser treatment.
