Laser Dentistry Northern Virginia

Ridgetop Dental is a state of the art family dental practice, serving Northern Virginia with convenient locations in Sterling and Reston. Led by Dr. Datta Malyavantham, our associates and staff provide the highest standard of dental care using advanced technology. Laser dentistry enhances our ability to treat the soft tissues of the mouth with greater accuracy, less discomfort and no downtime.

Dental lasers are used to provide gum contouring and periodontal treatments without the need for oral surgery. The heat generated during your laser procedure helps to stimulate the natural healing response and cauterizes tissue as it treats it, significantly reducing bleeding and swelling for a faster, more pleasant recovery.

Benefits of laser dentistry:

  • Minimal bleeding
  • Often no need for anesthesia
  • Precise treatment for better aesthetics
  • No downtime

If you are a candidate for a laser procedure, Dr. Datta will explain all aspects of the treatment and expected recovery. Dental lasers can enable patients with anxiety and fear related to dentistry receive the care they need without having to endure the drill, sutures and other common stressors. In many cases, patients can tolerate their laser treatment without the need for anesthesia, making post treatment recovery even easier.
