Laser dentistry employs a concentrated beam of light to treat soft tissue concerns, with greater precision and comfort than is possible with scalpels and sutures. Which is why we’re proud to use it to treat everything from cold sores to gum disease. In today’s blog, your Irving, TX, dentist talks about laser dentistry.
What Treatments Do We Address With Lasers?
Dental lasers are specially calibrated to address soft tissue concerns, so we can provide both cosmetic and restorative treatments. For example, we can shrink cold or canker sores, so they heal quicker and less likely to form in the same areas in the future. The technology can also help reshape tooth structure to address common cosmetic concerns, or to remove decay prior to filling placement. If you show off too much gum when you smile, we can remove excess tissues and improve gum line symmetry, so you have a more attractive smile. If you have periodontal disease, then our team can use the technology to remove diseased tissues and make periodontal disease much more manageable, so you can avoid complications like tooth loss.
The Benefits of Advanced Technology
When we use lasers, we no longer need sutures or scalpels for the procedure, as this technology is much more precise. They prevent damage to healthy tissues, and you avoid the need for anesthesia, so you avoid a shot during your visit. This technology also cauterizes the treated area to prevent bleeding, swelling, and infection afterward. The treated area heals quickly, treatment only takes one visit and you only need a day of rest in most cases. The next day most people return to normal activities! Our team can offer better oral health and a more attractive smile in only one visit, with precision and accuracy. You can obtain your best possible smile!
