Advanced Laser Dental Treatment
Exceptional General Dentistry in Lewis Center
If you are looking for a painless dental procedure that can repair gum tissue, treat cold sores, and lengthen existing crowns, then laser dentistry is the answer for you. At Northpointe Family Dentistry, our leading Lewis Center dentist, Dr. Rupinder Kaur, is so proud to make this latest technology available to her patients.
There are numerous advantages to using dental laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures, including the following:
- Painless process
- Minimal scarring and swelling
- Reduced recovery time
- Reduced recurrence of bacteria
What is Laser Dentistry?
The term laser stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, a device that produces and amplifies light. The light can be focused into a tiny point to do very fine, exact work. It is so precise in dental surgery that there is not as much tissue swelling. It is gentle on soft gum tissue and the heat from the laser also has a sterilization effect.
With laser dentistry treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
Reduced Risk of Infection
The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated
Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic spray is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.
