Laser Dentistry is a revolutionary step in dental care, which allows for the virtually pain free application of dental procedures with reduced swelling, trauma and bleeding. Crucially, the need for invasive implements and tools including the drill are eliminated.
Laser Dentistry can be used during a number of soft and hard tissue procedures, in the areas of General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry and Restorative Dentistry. The removal of decay, the preparation of cavities and root canal treatment can be completed painlessly and in minutes. Pin-point accuracy reduces the risk of spreading disease and bacteria and minimizes trauma or the need for pain medication.
Soft Tissue (Gum) Laser Dentistry treatment
Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis):
Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
Muscle Attachment (Frenula):
A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.
