Advanced Treatment With Laser Dentistry

garland laser dentistry

When you have issues like cold or canker sores, or if you want to address your gummy smile, then we can offer care with advanced technology. Dental lasers can target areas with precision and often require little to no anesthesia due to the comfort of these systems! In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist discusses how we help smiles with our advanced laser systems.

Our Dental Laser

Dental lasers use a concentrated beam of light calibrated to handle hard and soft tissue concerns in your smile. The technology can address issues with precision to prevent damage to surrounding structures. The procedure often requires little to no anesthesia, and the lack of scalpels and sutures used means the areas heal quicker. You may return to your normal routine in as little as 24 hours. The lasers reduce the risk of bleeding, swelling, and infection.

Cold Sores and Ulcers

When a cold sore forms, the laser can be used to shrink it and make it heal much faster than would be possible with other treatments or by waiting for it to heal naturally. The same goes for canker sores and even painful ulcers.

Gum Contouring

If you show off too much gum tissue when you smile, this could cause embarrassment and even make teeth appear shorter or uneven. But with laser technology, we can conduct gum contouring to reshape the gum line and remove excess tissues with comfort and precision. The contouring process allows us to modify the gum line for optional results in only one visit, and again the area heals quickly so you can return to your normal activities after only about 24 hours.

Periodontal Treatment

In addition to stopping cold sores and ulcers, and addressing gummy smiles, we can also use the technology to take on more advanced cases of periodontal disease, so you can receive treatment before the issue causes tooth loss and other complications. With the laser system, we can remove the diseased portions of your gums so healthy tissues can attach to the teeth. Moving forward, we can then manage the issue with preventive treatments like dental cleanings every three to four months. We’ve proud to offer this technology and provide care for patients with comfort and precision.

If you have any questions about laser technology, or if you are ready to schedule a checkup and cleaning with our team to start summer with better smiles, then contact our team today. We look forward to seeing you and your family, and helping you all smile with confidence all summer long!
