We believe embracing advanced technology allows our team to offer patients better treatment and healthier smiles. In addition, technology often allows us to provide treatments in shorter time frames tat are much more comfortable. As part of this approach, we employ laser dentistry at our office. Using dental lasers for general and restorative treatments can offer a number of different benefits.
What Issues can Dental Lasers Address?
We can employ advanced soft tissue diode laser to address cold sores, remove infected or diseased tissues for patients with gum disease, inflammation, and other oral health problems, and performing childhood frenectomy. We can also use the treatment for cosmetic procedures as well. Gum contouring can help with situations in which excess gum tissues make the teeth appear small or uneven. We also help patients with “gummy smiles,” which means too much gum is displayed when they smile. We can use the laser to reshape the gum line and remove excess tissue.
Benefits of Treatment Using Laser Dentistry
We can calibrate the laser to ensure treatment only impacts specific areas, preventing damage to surrounding structures or tissues. The lasers offer unrivaled precision and accuracy. The technology also cauterizes the treatment area, reducing the risk of bleeding and infection following treatment. Patients experience faster healing time and may find comfort in the quiet of the laser when compared to a loud drill. Patients also avoid the need for sutures and often won’t even require anesthesia during treatment. As you can see, when compared to a drill or scalpel, the laser offers a wide array of benefits. If you have any questions or concerns about laser dentistry, or if you think you could benefit from treatment, then contact our team today. We can perform a thorough diagnosis and see if your smile can benefit from our advanced dental lasers.
