Offering everything from fast, self-sealing oral surgery to stronger, longer lasting fillings, the dental laser is now utilized on an almost daily basis. Its many uses include:
- Gum (Periodontal) Therapy. The diode laser safely and quickly kills harmful bacteria in periodontal pockets. We can therefore treat mild periodontal disease with very little more than a routine cleaning and more serious periodontal conditions with very little more than scaling and root planing.
- Oral Surgery. Gum surgery and excisions that previously required referral to an oral surgeon can now be safely and quickly performed right in our office.
- Fillings and Crowns. Inflamed or over-grown gum tissue that can often delay or postpone restorative procedures can quickly be treated in the same appointment, dramatically improving quality and speeding up appointment length.
