Laser Dentistry
Encinitas, CA


Hand holding dental laser equipment at Michael Yokoyama D.D.S. in Encinitas, CA.Lasers have been used in partnership with traditional dental instruments since 1990. We are excited to provide for our patients an array of laser treatments designed to speed up recovery time, improve accuracy and kill bacteria more effectively than non-laser treatments.

Types of Laser Treatments


There are many different types of treatments available to patients today that utilize laser therapy. Here are a few of the treatments that we offer.
•  Periodontal Therapy: Gum grafting and scaling and root planing is the traditional gold standard treatment for periodontitis. At Encinitas Periodontics & Dental Implants we use a specialized laser to precisely remove infected tissue from the tooth's root. Dr. Bembey will then scrape plaque and calculus around the root.

Other Uses

•  Minimizes irritation from canker and cold sores
•  Kills bacteria
•  Simplifies biopsies
•  Expose wisdom teeth that are partially erupted
•  Extricates muscle attachments for better movement
•  Treats various infections

Is It Safe?


Laser therapy is not dangerous and is just as safe as any other piece of dental equipment when it is used correctly by a professional. As a precaution, we will provide you with special glasses to protect your eyes. Remember, lasers have been around for nearly thirty years, and after almost three decades worth of testing, you can rest assured you will not have any unseen side effects.

Benefits

•  Limits and sometimes eliminates the need for a drill
•  Patients report that laser, by contrast, is much more relaxing than the alternatives
•  Shown to speed up the healing process
•  Helps to control bleeding
•  Minimizes or replaces the need for anesthesia
•  Is more precise

This Doctor is a true healer!


Dr. Bembey is truly a healer. Not one of those Doctors who is in it for the money. You can tell that she loves her job. She actually made it enjoyable, and I don’t normally think of gum surgery as something to enjoy. She is very knowledgeable, and her skills are awesome! She communicates well and tells you small details that really help a lot. And she is there for you if you need her. Most importantly, she saved me from loosing my teeth! This Doctor is a GEM!!! I highly recommend her.
