Laser Surgery


Laser surgery:  eliminating the need for shots, drills and scalpels in various dental procedures.  Also, tissue treated with a laser heals much more quickly than conventional cutting instruments.  It seals off all capillaries, lymphatic vessels, and nerve endings.  As a result, you go home with no bleeding, risk of infection or postoperative pain.

Cosmetic gum recontouring:

Lasers are very effective in recontouring gum lines to a more balanced esthetic appearance.  Due to the properties of lasers the tissue heals very quickly and can look perfectly healthy in as little as 7 days.

Gum disease:

Not only can lasers safely and effectively remove diseased tissue it also disinfects the infected area.  Creating an ideal environment for the tissue to become healthy. Lasers are used in anywhere from treating minor gum disease as an adjunct to basic periodontal therapy to more advanced treatment.

Oral Laser Biopsy or lesion removal:

Lasers can be used to remove a small piece of tissue so that it can be examined for cancer.  Lasers are also used to remove lesions in the mouth and relieve the pain of canker sores.

Restorative treatment:

The use of lasers on the tissue around crowns, veneers, and onlays allows us to create better fitting restorations so they look and last longer.

Knowing When You Need a Dental Laser Surgery

Ann Stomatol shares factual finding: “From the epidemiological point of view, in the United States of America chronic periodontitis affects 47% of the adult population over the age of 30, distributed in mild (9%), moderate (30%) and severe (8%)”.

The May 18, 2015 Effectiveness of a diode laser in addition to non-surgical periodontal therapy: study of intervention article confirms our belief that a comprehensive dental treatment along with laser therapy produces better results than a laser surgery alone, both in clinical and the total bacterial count of periodontal pathogens.

Laser Dentistry and Dental Laser Surgery

After becoming instrumental to dentistry in the 1990’s, it is deemed more precise than traditional dental treatments. When providing dental care for children, they welcome the laser process since it involves no drilling, no numbing, and much less pain. A laser procedure may be our recommended choice for a variety of dental procedures:

• Cavity Removal

• Laser Cavity Detection

• Periodontal Gum Disease

• Root Canals

• Tooth Fillings

• Dental Implants

Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry

• Whitening of teeth

“Lasers can be used 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 planing alone. Scaling and root planing is a traditional non-surgical therapy used to treat periodontal diseases,” explains the American Academy of Periodontology.
