Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Dental lasers allow patients to receive the treatment they need without anesthetic, injection, or numbing. Lasers are gentle enough that they can address both soft and hard tissue concerns. Lasers also enable faster and quieter treatment. Because laser treatment does not require anesthesia, we can perform your procedure in a shorter amount of time.
Unlike traditional surgery methods, dental lasers are able to target specific areas of the mouth with precision and without drills and sutures. Following your laser dental treatment, you will be able to resume routine life sooner as lasers promote a faster healing time.
Laser Dentistry Procedures
Laser technology can help Dr. Stein and Dr. Brand complete cosmetic smile makeovers for a natural-looking end-result. Patients who have a “gummy smile” benefit greatly from having excess gum tissue removed to expose more of their tooth structure. Dental lasers can also treat abscesses, remove tissue for slowly erupting teeth, heal cold sores, and address gum disease.
The gum cannot grow back after a laser deep cleaning surgery, but gum grafting is possible for patients who have extensive damage from gum disease. On average, the healing time for laser gum surgery is anywhere from 2-4 weeks. Scaling and root planing with lasers ensure that infection is removed beneath the tooth root and can save severely diseased teeth and gums.
