    Is there a possibility of auditory nerve damage from using a laser to clean teeth
    Dentist used laser to clean my teeth, the next day I was unable to hear from my left ear. Is it possible to damage the auditory nerve using the laser.

    Laser is used to stimulate the auditory nerve to improve hearing. I don't think the low level used on teeth could do any damage to your hearing.

    I see of no way this could cause that damage. They need a full medical exam to determine damage and possible reasons.
