Laser technology is used for many applications in science because it facilitates higher accuracy and control for the various applications it is used for. In dentistry, the concentrated light beams have proven effective in procedures that require the removal or reshaping of tissues, treatment of infections and improving the results of teeth whitening procedures.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
The high level of accuracy and control that is possible with laser treatment makes it less invasive and therefore less likely to cause any significant pain. Often pain medications are not necessary thanks to the procedure’s efficacy.
Addressing certain dental issues like the removal of inflamed gum tissue often involves cutting, bleeding and stitching when traditional methods are applied. With laser technology, there is minimal bleeding during the procedure.
No Drills and Scalpels
The sound of drills and the sight of scalpels can scare patients who have a phobia of visiting the dentist, which reduces their comfort level. The laser is, therefore, a better option for those who experience discomfort due to scalpels and dental drills
Shorter Healing Period
Patients undergoing laser treatments experience a faster healing time due to the fact that there is no cutting and stitching involved with these procedures. Patients are ready to go back to their normal day routines in a short amount of time.
Spend Less Time at the Dentist’s Office
Many people dread the thought of spending all day at the dentist’s office to undergo painful procedures. Laser treatments gives the dentist better control and accuracy, reducing the time it takes to complete the procedure while providing the patient with a safe and comfortable experience.
Applications of Laser Dentistry
Dr. Suffoletta’s office is one of the few practices that has state-of-the-art laser equipment along with qualified and experienced staff to carry out laser treatment procedures in Las Vegas. Procedures that can be facilitated with laser dentistry at Dr. Suffoletta’s office are:
Crown Lengthening: Crown lengthening is a procedure that is performed with the goal of eliminating the “gummy smile” condition where the gum creeps too far up the tooth. Depending on the dentist’s analysis additional procedures may be required to improve the solid tooth structure. With traditional treatment plans, this can be time consuming and expensive. Laser treatment reduces the resources and time needed for crown lengthening.
Frenectomy: The frenulum is the tissue that attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth or the gum to the lips. When the frenulum is too long or thick it can cause gaps between teeth, or prevent movements of the tongue and lip. Infants and children often require frenectomies to eliminate the risks of complications. The laser provides the best option for painless and minimally invasive frenectomies.
Remove Oral Growth: Laser dentistry makes it possible to remove oral growths without causing trauma. It can treat benign growths that are otherwise difficult to address with traditional methods. This results in faster and a more effective restoration of your oral health condition.
Dr. Suffoletta’s practice stays up to date on the latest scientific breakthroughs to ensure laser dental procedures are safe, comfortable, and take less time to heal.
