Discover the benefits of dental lasers
Feel more relaxed
Experience little to no discomfort during a laser treatment. Lasers can also numb a tooth without needles or anesthesia for painless fillings.
Heal faster with less treatment
You’re less likely to need stitches after a laser treatment. You’ll enjoy the benefit of a shorter visit, faster healing, and less bleeding.
Get accurate results
High-tech dental lasers are extremely precise, sterile, and minimally invasive. And there’s less chance of developing an infection.

Dr. Flax answers your questions about dental lasers
How does laser dentistry reduce pain?
Laser dentistry allows us to perform a wide variety of dental procedures more comfortably. Lasers:
- Make teeth less sensitive during treatment
- Do not transmit heat or vibration
- Can replace the drill for many procedures
- Eliminate the sound of the drill, something that causes many people a lot of anxiety
Do dentists need special training to use dental lasers?
Yes. Dr. Flax completed advanced training courses and certifications on laser dentistry. He also frequently lectures and writes about this topic to people from all over the world. You should expect nothing less than a dentist who is highly experienced!
How do dental lasers work?
Dental lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. The laser acts as a heat source, cutting instrument, or vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. This makes lasers an amazing tool for comfortably and efficiently removing decay, reshaping gums, and altering bone.
Flax Dental is located inside the Perimeter and is a short walk from the MARTA Medical Center station. We offer free parking and convenient office hours.
