Laser Therapy

Periodontal Laser Therapy

 

Laser therapy is a modern and innovative treatment option for gum disease. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to remove bacteria and infected tissue from the gums. This treatment is becoming increasingly popular among dental professionals and patients alike due to its many benefits.

Here are some of the benefits of laser therapy for the gums:

Minimally Invasive: Laser therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any incisions or sutures. This means that there is less pain, swelling, and bleeding compared to traditional gum surgery.

Faster Healing: Laser therapy promotes faster healing and recovery time. Patients can return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure.

Reduced Risk of Infection: Laser therapy reduces the risk of infection because it sterilizes the area being treated. This means that there is less chance of bacteria entering the bloodstream and causing further health problems.

Precision: Laser therapy is a precise treatment option that targets only the infected tissue. This means that healthy tissue is left intact, reducing the risk of damage to the gums.

Improved Gum Health: Laser therapy can improve gum health by removing bacteria and infected tissue. This can help prevent further damage to the gums and teeth.

Reduced Pain: Laser therapy is a virtually painless procedure. Patients may experience some discomfort during the procedure, but this is usually minimal and can be managed with local anesthesia.

Cost-Effective: Laser therapy is a cost-effective treatment option because it requires fewer appointments and less time off work compared to traditional gum surgery.

 Laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for gum disease.

 

It offers many benefits, including faster healing, reduced risk of infection, precision, improved gum health, reduced pain, and cost-effectiveness.

If you are experiencing gum disease symptoms, talk to your dentist about whether laser therapy is right for you.

Sensitivity, Ulcer and Snoring Therapy

Ulcer Treatment:

Mouth ulcers are a common problem that can be painful and uncomfortable. Traditional treatment options for ulcers include topical medications and mouthwashes. However, dental lasers can also be used to treat ulcers.

Dental lasers can be used to target the ulcer and promote healing. The laser energy helps to reduce inflammation and stimulate the growth of new tissue. This can help to reduce pain and speed up the healing process.

One of the benefits of using a dental laser for ulcer treatment is that it is a minimally invasive procedure.   There is evidence to show that ulcers will reduce in frequency in the location they were treated. 

Tooth Sensitivity:

Tooth sensitivity is a common problem that can be caused by a variety of factors, including gum recession, tooth decay, and enamel erosion. Traditional treatment options for tooth sensitivity include desensitizing toothpaste and fluoride treatments.

However, dental lasers can also be used to treat tooth sensitivity.

Dental lasers can be used to target the sensitive areas of the teeth, this can help to reduce sensitivity and improve overall oral health.

One of the benefits of using a dental laser for tooth sensitivity is that it is a precise treatment option. The laser energy can be targeted to specific areas of the teeth.

Dental lasers are a safe and effective treatment option for a variety of dental problems, including ulcers, tooth sensitivity and snoring due to the length of the soft palate.

If you are experiencing these issues, talk to your dentist about whether dental laser treatment is right for you.

Snoring related to Soft Palate Length:

Laser therapy can be used as a non surgical treatment to reduce the length of the soft palate.  An elongated soft palate has been shown to increase snoring and reduce breathing efficiency during sleep and daytime breathing.  Reducing the length of the soft palate with Non-Ablative (non surgical) laser therapy is a quick and painless way to improve your breathing and sleep.
