Our team offers the Biolase Epic Hygiene™ diode laser to address an array of concerns with your soft tissues, from cosmetic care to relief from cold sores! In fact, we can even manage a more advanced stage of periodontal disease. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about the benefits of laser dentistry.
The Benefits of Our Biolase Epic Hygiene® Diode System
Our team employs a unique dental laser that has been specially calibrated to handle soft tissue concerns. The treatment rarely requires the use of anesthesia and is very comfortable. Since we don’t use scalpels or sutures, we can target treated areas with greater precision and prevent damage to healthy tissues too. The procedure can be done in one visit and heals quickly, with many returning to their normal routines after only a day of rest. The technology also limits the risk of bleeding, swelling, and infection as well. As you will find out. We can use this technology to treat an array of oral health concerns.
Treating Cold Sores
Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus, and once they develop even with creams and medicines they can last for days. If left alone, it could take a week or two for them to heal. But with a dental laser, we can shrink them so they vanish much faster. Not only that, but they’re less likely to return to the same area. We can help provide a solution for these issues quickly and comfortably, so you can get back to your normal routine without feeling self-conscious!
Addressing Gummy Smiles
Dental lasers also provide cosmetic treatment too. We can use them to conduct a gum contouring procedure, in which we remove excess tissues from gummy smiles to improve symmetry and prevent teeth from looking small or uneven. The procedure takes only one visit, and can offer major cosmetic results in that time. This could be done as part of your smile makeover, or to address the issues you have with the appearance of your gums.
Solutions for Periodontal Disease
If you have a more severe case of gum disease, we could use the treatment to remove diseased tissues so healthy ones can attach to the teeth and limit the severity of periodontal disease. We then manage the disease by removing plaque with simple cleanings every three to four months.
