Treating Dental Concerns without Incisions or Injections
One way our team remains on the forefront of dentistry is by integrating laser dentistry into our practice. Laser dentistry makes treatment, such as crown lengthening and frenectomies, dramatically more comfortable, safe, and pain-free for pediatric and adult patients alike. We have achieved advanced training and certification in the Diode Nd:YAG dental laser for cosmetic soft tissue procedures. Along with helping anxious patients feel calm, our laser dentistry options vastly improve your experiences and solve a lot of dental issues without the need for scalpels, incisions, drills, or injections.
The Benefits of Laser Dentistry:
- Virtually painless
- Eliminates scalpels
- No injections
- Highly accurate diagnosis
- Targeted treatment
- Minimized bleeding and swelling
- Rapid healing process
The frenulum is a small piece of soft tissue that supports or restricts the movement of the tongue and upper lip. If the frenulum is causing too much restriction, dental lasers are used to near-painlessly remove a portion of this tissue to allow for greater movement.
Soft Tissue Recontouring
Too much gum tissue covering teeth is unattractive and can harbor bacteria. Dental lasers are used to gently reshape the contour of the gum tissue, either to improve a “gummy” smile or as crown lengthening to access areas of the tooth underneath.
Dental lasers can be used to gently remove dental crowns without compromising their structure. Energy from the laser breaks down the cement enough for the crown to be removed undamaged. This gives us access to the natural tooth needing dental work.
Relieving Dental Anxiety with Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry provides a significant benefit for patients suffering from dental anxiety by eliminating many of the aspects of dental appointments that cause concern. Because of laser dentistry, we complete many procedures that were traditionally performed using invasive scalpels and noisy dental drills, commonly without the need for injections to numb the treatment site. Minimally invasive laser dentistry is one of the best ways, aside from sedation dentistry, we can help our patients overcome their dental anxiety!
