Laser Dentistry At Dental Experts
The benefits of dental lasers are astounding. Dental lasers are one of the most helpful advancements in recent years for dental patients. Currently, lasers can be used to treat gum disease, cold sores and canker sores. Additionally, they can be used to perform biopsies and many other oral surgical procedures. Only 15% of dentists in the USA are currently equipped with, and trained in using a dental laser. Dental Health Experts is proud to be a part of this elite group. With laser procedures, there are no scalpels, no stitches, no painful surgery and no bleeding.
Laser Gum Treatment and Laser Gum Surgery
At Dental Health Experts, we strive to help our patients achieve healthy teeth and gums so that they can live disease-free lives and have confidence in their well being and appearance. One component of oral health is the treatment of periodontal disease. We provide the most comprehensive, up to date approach in our periodontal therapy to obtain the very best possible success rates.
We use a highly advanced soft-tissue diode laser to sterilize the infected areas and selectively remove infected tissue. Traditional periodontal therapies often requires cutting and stitching of the gums. Unfortunately, this results in the removal of both infected and healthy tissue. By using the laser, healthy tissue is left undisturbed and only the infected tissue is removed. With laser therapy, there is no scalpel, no bleeding, no stitches and no pain. The infection is removed from the gums and tissues of the mouth, leaving behind only healthy and stable gums and bone. This level of service is a testament to how deeply we care about the results we achieve for our patients.
Laser Treatment of Cold Sores (Herpes Simplex Virus of the Lips) and Canker Sores
Cold sores are caused by the herpes virus which lays dormant in the body. During times of stress or other triggering factors, the virus awakens and leads to cold sores on the lips and around the areas of the mouth. We know how painful and embarrassing cold sore outbreaks can be. We can treat your cold sores with our highly advanced laser. If you feel a cold sore coming on or already have an active cold sore, we can use the laser to sterilize the area and kill the virus before it erupts and turns into a full blown attack.
Laser cold sore treatment only takes about 5 minutes. It kills the virus and calms the pain and itching associated with the outbreak. In many cases, the cold sore will never even develop after it has been treated with the laser. So if you feel a cold sore coming on or have one that has already erupted, don’t wait any longer, Call Dental Health Experts to get your laser treatment and get back to living your life without discomfort or embarrassment.
