Laser Dentistry Gentle, effective laser dentistry is available in Fort Lauderdale
Dr. B. Lipovetskiy DMD and his team, are committed to bringing the benefits of current technologies, including laser dentistry, to patients in the Fort Lauderdale area. Lasers have revolutionized many conventional dental techniques with improved patient comfort and more favorable treatment outcomes. Here are a few examples of how we utilize our dual wavelength Waterlase iPlus™ all tissue dental laser.
Soft tissue procedures
Gum therapy – Laser therapy is ideal to eliminate tartar build-up, inflammation, infection, and harmful bacteria in the gum area, including periodontal pockets. The dentist removes diseased tissue without cutting or stitches, and with little or no bleeding.
Crown lengthening – This cosmetic treatment improves the appearance of a “gummy smile,” allowing teeth to appear longer.
Frenectomy – Tongue-tie is a band of tissue that limits mobility, impairing speech and oral hygiene. Laser treatment corrects tongue-tie, quickly and with little discomfort and no sutures.
Hard tissue dentistry
Cavities – The most common complaint about getting a filling is sound, vibration, and heat from a dental drill. Laser dentistry gets rid of those stressors. Dr. Lipovetskiy uses the laser to evaporate damaged tooth structure with such precision that healthy areas are not needlessly removed. Best of all, there is usually no need for numbing injections!
Root canal therapy – Recurring infection is the primary cause of failed root canals. Utilizing a special tip for the laser, Dr. Lipovetskiy cleans all traces of bacteria and toxins from the tiny canals in tooth roots more effectively than can be done with conventional methods.
In addition to the iPlus, we use laser instruments to assess the hardness of tooth enamel to catch cavities while they are tiny, and for early detection.

Rating : 5 I get my teeth cleaned here every 6 months; surprisingly it's done by a dentist and not a hygienist. I have also gotten fillings done here on a couple of teeth. I had a sensitive tooth and got a fluoride treatment once. All top notch work! Friendly & chatty dentists and front office staff.
Most importantly, I got my wisdom teeth extractions done here. No swelling, almost no pain - quick & easy. And a tooth was impacted!
I have good insurance so my out of pocket is very low, hence I cannot comment on the cost. I highly recommend this office. It's in a nice clean safe neighborhood. Stop by at Trader Joes on your way home.
