How is Laser used in Dentistry?
Lasers are being used in dental treatments since the 1990s. They are safe and very effective to use in a wide array of dental treatments. At our dental clinic & salon we use laser treatments for various dental procedures.
Lasers have revolutionized multiple industries, and oral care is no exception.
Laser Dental Treatments we offer
Gingivectomy means excision of the gingiva. By removing the pocket wall, gingivectomy provides visibility and accessibility for complete calculus removal and thorough smoothing of the roots, creating a favorable environment for gingival healing and restoration of a physiologic gingival contour.
A frenectomy is the removal of a frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving too far. It can refer to frenula in several places on the human body. It is related to frenuloplasty, a surgical alteration in a frenulum.
Laser Gingival depigmentation
Gingival hyperpigmentation is a common esthetical concern in patients with gummy smile or excessive gingival display. Laser ablation has been recognized recently as the most effective, pleasant and reliable technique. It has the advantage of easy handling, short treatment time, hemostasis, decontamination, and sterilization effect.
Laser Tooth Whitening procedures
Lasers were developed for teeth whitening in response to consumer complaints that traditional bleaching was too painful and resulted in inflammation. Lasers, on the other hand, can be focused on a very specific area to avoid these effects.
Laser Crown Lengthening
Periodontal procedure in which gingival and osseous tissue is removed in order to expose more clinical tooth structure. As the terminology implies, for appropriate reimbursement, some osseous recontouring or removal must be performed as part of the treatment. It requires reflection of a flap and is performed in a healthy periodontal environment.
Laser Cold Sores Treatment
Unlike other cold sore treatments, like creams or ointments, lasers get to the root of the problem. They destroy the herpes simplex virus that actually causes cold sores.
Laser Treatment of gum diseases
Lasers is an effective method to treat periodontal disease. Current controlled studies have shown that similar results have been found with the laser compared to specific other treatment options, including scaling and root planning alone. Scaling and root planning is a traditional non-surgical therapy used to treat periodontal diseases.
Treating muscles that restrict movement through Laser
Laser light reduces swelling, leading to decreased pain, less stiffness, and a faster return to normal joint and muscle function.
