Our team employs advanced technology to help improve the health, beauty, and function of your smile with precision and accuracy. From treating tooth decay to fighting gum disease, we can offer a strong smile without sutures or scalpels. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, dentist talks about laser dentistry.
The Dental Laser
A dental laser is a device that employs a concentrated beam of light to treat soft tissues and target specific areas of the smile. The technology is specifically calibrated to handle your smile and provide relief, replacing the need for sutures or scalpels in many cases. They target areas with precision to prevent damage to healthy tissues, and the area heals much faster since sutures aren’t necessary. Most people return to normal activities the next day in fact! The risk of bleeding, infection, and swelling is also much lower too. Finally, the treatment process is comfortable and rarely requires the need for any anesthesia.
Our team can use laser technology to shrink cold and canker sores, so they heal much quicker and don’t stick around as long. In fact, they often can’t reform in the same areas as well. You can enjoy relief much faster than using medications or waiting for the area to heal on its own.
A gummy smile means you display too much gum when you smile, which alters your smile’s appearance and could even make teeth appear short or uneven. But with advanced technology, our team can trim away excess tissues and reshape the gum line to improve symmetry and offer a more attractive smile, all in only one visit!
Tooth Decay and Infection
Our team can employ dental lasers to remove decay from a tooth or to aid in the treatment of infection, destroying harmful bacterial deposits in the process to help protect your smile from further complications. We then place a filling or complete a root canal, return your tooth to optimal health, function, and beauty again.
Gingivitis and Gum Disease
Our team can use this technology to remove harmful bacteria as part of treatment for gingivitis, or to remove diseased tissues if you have periodontal disease, so you can avoid sore, red gums, bleeding, or the risk of adult tooth loss. If you have any questions about how we implement advanced technology to diagnose and treat your oral health concerns, then contact our team today to learn more. You deserve a healthy smile and long-lasting results!
