Benefits of laser therapy
There are several benefits to receiving a laser therapy dental treatment.
- Many laser treatments do not require anesthesia, and the recovery time is much quicker than with traditional treatment methods.
- Treatments are more comfortable.
- There is less potential chance of bacterial infection because laser treatments are so precise.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Laser Periodontal Disease Treatment - tartar, associated with inflammation and bleeding gums, is removed from the root surface of the tooth using an ultrasonic scaler and small instruments. Then, a small amount of laser energy is directed through a tiny fiber which is gently placed between the gum and tooth. This laser energy aids in reducing the bacteria associated with the disease. After the area is thoroughly cleaned, the affected area can naturally heal.
Laser Canker Sore and Cold Sore Treatments - the laser can safely and quickly relieve the pain caused by blisters on your lips and in and around your mouth, and help speed up the healing process. The laser energy treats the sore, allowing the body to recover faster by days.
Gum Reshaping/Reduction Treatment - laser smile design allows us to safely and precisely shape and contour gum tissue around your teeth to improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
Muscle Attachment Treatment - removing a muscle attachment frenum with the laser minimizes post-operative pain and the need for stitches. Healing time is dramatically reduced.
