How does laser dentistry work?
Periodontal surgery made modern leaps and bounds with the introduction of laser dentistry. As opposed to traditional cutting and stitching, laser dentistry makes it possible to complete a wide variety of surgical procedures more comfortably and with faster healing.
We offer laser dentistry in our North Tamworth dental surgery for a number of procedures.
- Periodontal gum treatment
- Gingival sculpting
- Gum tissue rejuvenation
- Crown lengthening
- Treatment for gummy smiles
- Crown and veneer preparation
- Tongue-tie resolution
- Cold sore and canker sore healing
Laser light energy reshapes periodontal tissue and seals it simultaneously. As a result, stitches are not necessary, and bleeding is reduced or eliminated. The lack of stitches reduces downtime and makes healing easier and more comfortable.
For periodontal treatment to heal infected gum tissue, laser dentistry removes diseased tissue and promotes regeneration of healthy gum tissue. When used in conjunction with deep dental cleanings and antimicrobial medication or rinses, patients can more easily control active infection, reduce inflammation and improve their overall health.
