Laser dentistry is one of the most significant breakthroughs in dentistry and the office of Richard A. Murdoch, DDS, is one of the few dental offices in the Denver metro area that uses a laser.
Thanks to the Waterlase, we can often avoid the use of a drill, and Novocain! The exacting accuracy of the laser allows us to leave more healthy tooth structure in place. When we work in soft tissue, such as on gums or cheeks, the laser instantly seals wounds which helps prevent bleeding and infection.
The laser can be used to:
- remove decay
- prepare cavities for fillings
- treat gum disease
- perform root canals
- treat canker sores
