Do you suffer from poor gum health?
Or do you have a ‘gummy smile’ that concerns you?
At EGO Dental, we can help you with a Dental Laser Gingivectomy. This is a simple dental procedure that recontours the gingival tissue to improve long term dental health and/or aesthetics. Our advanced dental laser means that this procedure is precise, stable, bloodless, often less painful, and there is an accelerated healing experience.
By removing the pocket wall, a laser gingivectomy provides us with visibility and accessibility and allows us to completely remove calculus and carry out a thorough smoothing of the roots. This creates a favourable environment for gum healing and restoration of a pleasing gingival contour (gum line).
A dental laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The beam of light produced by the laser has the ability to remove, vaporise, or shape soft tissues (gums, cheeks and tongue) or hard tissues (removal of decay).
Laser dentistry is wonderful because in many cases it will actually decrease any pain of a procedure and also reduce the need for you to require anaesthesia – no needles or injections. While no treatment is always painless, the laser may reduce the need for postoperative pain medication and may reduce swelling and bleeding.
Lasers have been used in dentistry since the 1990s. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has determined that lasers provide safe and effective treatment for a wide range of applications and as long as it is used by experts like at EGO Dental, it is at least as safe as other dental instruments.
Yes. You will be asked to wear special eyeglasses to protect your eyes from the laser light beam.
Use of a laser means that there is less blood during soft tissue procedures than there would be with more traditional treatments.
