Laser Dentistry Services in Fort Worth
The dental laser is an incredible alternative to the dental drill. We perform soft tissue laser dentistry here at The Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth to improve the health and appearance of the gums. For most laser dentistry procedures, there is no need for needles, shots, or discomfort.

What are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?
Why should you be interested in the soft tissue dental laser? Patient benefits are both health and comfort related.
- Fewer Stitches: The soft tissue dental laser seals the tissue as it treats it. Laser dentistry procedures often do not require sutures or stitches.
- Greater Comfort: Many laser dentistry procedures are so comfortable that patients do not require any anesthesia.
- Minimal Bleeding: The high-energy light beam of the dental laser promotes coagulation of exposed vessels, restraining blood loss and promoting quick healing.
- Lower Risks: When you choose laser dentistry, your risk for bacterial infection decreases immensely. The high-energy beam of the laser will sterilize the area while treating it.
- Brief Healing: Your healing time will be minimized because wounds from the dental laser repair themselves faster.
