When possible, our team is proud to incorporate the latest technologies as part of our diagnostic and treatment process. Which is why we use a specially calibrated laser for hard and soft tissues applications. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist talks about our approach to laser dentistry.
Using Dental Lasers
Dental lasers employ a concentrated beam of light to target areas of the smile with precision and accuracy. We can use this to target special areas without damaging surrounding tissues and gums. For example, we can help with the removal of decay, or contour the gum line and remove diseased tissues to improve smile beauty or help control gum disease. Our team can also help treat cold or canker sores, stopping their progression and shrinking them in a comfortable manner. Our team can also treat ulcers in the interior of the mouth, offering a fast and effective solution in only one visit, and bringing relief.
Benefits for Our Patients
As we touched on above, the precision this system provides means surrounding tissues are not damaged. We don’t need scalpels or sutures at all, and the use of lasers reduces the risk of bleeding and infection afterward. In fact, most people return to normal activities after only a day of rest. The procedure doesn’t need anesthesia either. For people with concerns about needles or scalpels, this could help reduce anxiety. We’re excited to be able to bring relief for painful issues and offer treatment with advanced technology.

At home, you can protect your smile in between these visits with daily brushing and flossing, and a healthier diet low in sugar and starch.
