The advanced technology we offer isn’t just limited to digital x-rays. In fact, we actually use advanced laser systems to offer comfort care with precision and accuracy. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about the benefits of dental lasers, and the various oral health concerns we can treat!
The Benefits of Advanced Dentistry
Dental lasers can often replace the need for scalpels and sutures in a number of treatment options. They provide a greater level of precision, and can target the treated areas while also preventing damage to healthy tissues. They rarely require anesthesia, and since they essentially cauterize the treated area, there is little risk of bleeding, swelling, or infection. Treatment takes one visit, and people typically return to normal activities after only a day of rest. We can help treat minor and more serious concerns for kids and adults alike, providing treatment with precision, accuracy, and comfort.
Cold and Canker Sores
If you have cold sores, then you know how embarrassing they can be. You also know that despite going away on their own, this could take several days. But with a dental laser, we can shrink them and destroy the virus that causes them. Not only do they vanish quicker, but they’re unlikely to return in the same area. The technology could also be used to shrink canker sores as well, easing discomfort so you can return to your normal routine.
Gum disease is a very severe oral health issue, one that could lead to tooth loss unless managed. In the more advanced stage, we could employ dental lasers to target and remove diseased portions of tissue, so that healthy ones can once again adhere to the teeth. This reduces the depth of periodontal pockets, so the disease can be easily managed moving forward with simple cleanings every three to four months. In addition, we’ve also used them to help remove decay from teeth, so they can address multiple serious oral health issues.
If you have a gummy smile, in which you display too much gingival tissue when you smile, which could also make teeth appear shorter or uneven, then we could help by reshaping the gum line. The gum contouring procedure involves employing the dental laser to gently trim away excess tissues and correct symmetry of your gum line, so you obtain a more attractive smile in only one visit.
