Using dental lasers, we can offer unrivaled precision when treating everything from cold sores to periodontal disease. This can be done with comfort as well, forgoing the need for scalpels and sutures. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about the benefits of laser dentistry.
The Biolase System
Our team uses the Biolase Epic Hygiene™ dental laser to treat a variety of soft tissues concerns in our smiles. This employs a concentrated beam of light that is specially calibrated to handle issues with your gums and lips, providing relief from pain issues and also managing serious concerns like periodontal disease. The laser enables our team to target areas with precision and accuracy without damaging surrounding tissues. Since the beam cauterizes the treated area, this prevents bleeding, infection, and swelling. There is little need for anesthesia, and people usually return to normal activities after only a day of rest. No scalpels, no sutures, just comfortable care with precision.
Cold sores are a common issue that develops on our lips, creating embarrassing sores caused by the herpes simplex virus. These are very noticeable, painful, and can last for quite a while before going away on their own. But with advanced technology, we can shrink them to make them less noticeable and ensure they heal in a much faster timeframe. Cold sores are then less likely to appear in the treated areas in the future. We could also ease canker sores, which form in the interior of your mouth but are still tender and uncomfortable.
When we see patients with a more advanced case of periodontal disease, we want to help manage the disease and protect the smile from tooth loss. Using dental lasers, we can remove diseased tissues and destroy the presence of harmful bacteria, which allows us to more easily manage it moving forward with simple cleaning every three to four months.
