We often use advanced technology to help treat smiles, such as conducting diagnoses with digital imaging. As part of our technology, our team can also employ dental lasers to treat issues that range from cold sores to periodontal disease. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about the use of laser dentistry.
The Benefits of the Biolase Epic Hygiene™ Laser
The laser employs a specially calibrated beam of light that can address a variety of soft tissue concerns. When we use dental lasers, there is rarely a need for anesthesia, so you can undergo treatment comfortably. In addition, their precision means there is no damage to healthy tissues, and there is also a reduced risk of bleeding and swelling afterward as well. The chances of infection developing are significantly lower when compared to scalpels and sutures, and the procedures only take one visit. In fact, many people return to normal activities after only a day of rest.
Cold Sores, Gum Disease, and More
The diode laser will actually target and destroy the viruses that cause cold sores to form. This helps reduce the appearance and severity of your sores, and allows them to heal much faster. In addition, we can use them to help treat tooth decay or remove buildup. If you have periodontal disease, we can use the lasers to quickly and comfortably remove diseased tissues, so healthy ones can adhere to the teeth. This makes the disease more manageable with routine care, such as cleanings every three to four months. We could also use this in a cosmetic setting, offering a gum contouring procedure. When you display too much gingival issue, this could make teeth appear small or uneven. But with lasers, we can improve symmetry and reshape the gum line in only one visit!
