Our team offers treatment for our Tucson, AZ, patients using advanced dental technology. In fact, we may even employ advanced dental lasers to restore the health of your smile. How does a dental laser address preventive and restorative concerns? When should you see your dentist for treatment? Let’s talk about the advantages this unique technology offers our patients.
When Do We Prescribe Laser Dentistry?
We use the technology for a number of different treatment options. For example, if you have a gummy smile, which displays too much gingival issue and could make the teeth appear small or uneven, we can remove excessive tissue and reshape the gum line. If you have advanced periodontal disease, then to manage the disease and protect your smile from pain and tooth loss, we may remove the infected tissue completely. We may also perform procedures designed to improve the health of your smile by repairing your teeth.
What Benefits Will the Technology Offer?
The lasers will actually cauterize the treatment area, which means we don’t need to place sutures and that the risk of bleeding, infection, and swelling reduces significantly as the technology destroys harmful oral bacteria. Patients also enjoy a shorter healing time and a much lower chance of complications arising. We often rarely need to prescribe anesthesia or sedation for procedures using this technology, we can perform the procedure with great accuracy and precision, especially compared to the same procedure being completed with a scalpel. We’re proud to offer this technology and help our patients enjoy improved oral health!
When Should I See the Dentist?
If you have a smile that displays too much gum tissue and impacts the appearance of your smile, then contact our team today. Likewise, if your gums begin to bleed easily, feel sore or appear red, then this could point to the presence of periodontal disease, and your could benefit from treatment. If your teeth become damaged or begin to experience serious discomfort, such as aches and sensitivity, then please let us know. Ignoring discomfort could allow a minor problem to grow more severe, eventually threatening the very stability of the tooth itself. If you have any questions about our soft-tissue dental lasers, or if you believe treatment is needed for your smile, then please contact our team today.
