Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
A New Era in Dentistry!
Chances are that you or a family member may be considering laser dental treatment. Dental lasers help us diagnose and treat soft-tissue procedures such as non-invasive gum treatments. We find that the laser offers a level of precision that simply isn’t available with other conventional dental instruments. Laser procedures eliminate bleeding, making it easier and faster to work while reducing stress for both the patient and the dentist. The laser also sterilizes as it works, helping to control infection.
“Comfort, Healing, Precision and Relief”
Benefits of Laser Dentistry…
- Comfort – No contact, no vibration, no heat
- Healing – Less trauma to teeth and gums
- Precision – The Laser cuts exactly where directed
Periodontal Surgery: Unhappy with the shape of your gums? Dental Lasers can reshape gum tissue and bone to expose healthier tooth structure. Crown lengthening provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations and gum reshaping will improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
Laser Periodontal Therapy: Older treatments for periodontal disease, called scaling and root planing, were often painful and required sutures. Advanced laser periodontal therapy is a simple, less painful solution for patients whose gums have pulled away from the teeth. Read more..
Benign Tumours: Dental lasers can be used for the removal of benign tumours from the oral cavity, painlessly and suture-free.
Soft Tissue Lessions: Most cases of oral cancer are linked to cigarette smoking, heavy alcohol use, or the use of both tobacco and alcohol together. Using tobacco plus alcohol poses a much greater risk than using either substance alone. A thorough head and neck examination is now a routine part of each patient’s dental visit. Dr. Davidson is particularly vigilant in checking those who use tobacco or excessive amounts of alcohol.
With early detection and timely treatment, deaths from oral cancer can be dramatically reduced. Tissue changes in the mouth that might signal the beginnings of cancer can often be seen and felt easily. Call us to set up your dental hygiene visit and oral cancer evaluation!
