Lasers At Work
Not so long ago, it would have been unimaginable that lasers could be used by dentists to eliminate the need for sawing away with a scalpel and drilling deep into your teeth.
Fortunately, a new day has dawned. Lasers allow us to save you time, create less discomfort for you, and deliver quicker healing in the aftermath of your procedure.
Gentle Gum Disease Treatments
Having periodontal disease is bad enough. But gum disease treatments used to involve special tools that would be thrust below your gumline to scrape away the problem-causing plaque and tartar.
Lasers do that in a more gentle fashion and they do it better because they destabilize and break down the bacteria while sterilizing the area and restoring your health.
You’ll be surprised by how easy it is.
Simple Solutions For Gummy Smiles
Cosmetic dentistry is now easier too. If your teeth and gums are not properly proportioned it can cause a great deal of embarrassment. We have long been able to fix that though. The problem was that gum reshaping used to require a scalpel, stitches, and it was sometimes unpleasant.
Any more, laser technology has made this kind of work a snap. We can now reshape your gums without making any cuts. Our lasers can be programmed to vaporize gum tissue on the spot. That means that the procedure is faster, and the laser seals your gums right away so there won’t be any tenderness or drawn out healing process.
Handling Tooth Decay
Dental lasers are so versatile that they can even be focused to go after cavities. We can reliably utilize them to eliminate decayed areas of your teeth while leaving the healthy parts untouched.
Imagine getting dental work done without hearing the drill (a major source of fear for many people)! Plus, we can get rid of the decay for good!
