Comprehensive Dental Treatment That Ensures Complete Dental Care and Comfort
Laser Dentistry – The Latest Addition to Our Line of Dental Treatments
We have recently added a new procedure to our routine cleaning care to help fight dental disease –Laser Dentistry. Laser dentistry is an effective and direct dental procedure that is expected to increase in application over the next few years due to its precision and incredible benefits. Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding and bacterial infections while enhancing the appearance of your smile.
- They are an intense beam of light used in certain dental procedures. When used for soft tissue procedures, lasers allow dentists to perform gum treatments with ease and without pain.
- They can also be used to remove excess gum tissue and change the patient’s appearance if they have a gummy smile.
- They can stop bleeding from the tissue and remove diseased tissue.
- Laser can also get rid of canker sores or cold sores and reduces the healing time and the pain that comes along with them.
- Laser used in soft tissue procedures leads to faster recovery and less discomfort than conventional dental procedures.
- It can often be done without the use of the local anesthetic.
The healing time for all of the laser procedures is relatively fast and patients experience less pain as well. Laser surgery has also been found to be effective in treating Periodontal Disease. The laser decontamination process is painless and normally takes about 5-10 minutes. We highly recommend that you take advantage of this service as part of your routine cleaning.
Oral sedation is a great option for a person with a fear of needles or just dentists and dental treatment in general. Oral sedation is a prescription that is given to the patient usually along the lines of Ativan. Patient takes 1 pill 1 hour before the procedure and another pill just before the procedure starts and this causes a deeper sedation. Oral sedation will not put a patient to sleep, but relax them and dull their senses. When a patient takes oral sedation, they must be accompanied by another person as they will not be able to drive.
Digital x-ray is safer because it uses a much lower amount of radiation, 95% less radiation than conventional x-rays. It is better because it is far superior in clarity as compared to conventional x-rays. Also, the image can be magnified 300x more than its normal size. It is faster because the images pop up on the computer screen within seconds of being taken. It is safer because no hazardous chemicals are used.
It is a pencil shaped digital camera that is moved around in your mouth so that the dentist can show you an enlarged image of your teeth on the computer screen. You get to see what the dentist sees!
