Laser Dentistry in Rush City
Did you know that only about 11% of dental offices in the nation offer laser treatments to their patients, and we are one of them?
Laser dentistry is an important advancement in dental technology, treating a wide range of dental and cosmetic problems from crown lengthening to gum disease. Laser dentistry works by directing an invisible energy beam on problem areas and allowing for efficient treatment of decayed teeth, enamel and gums. The biggest benefit of laser dentistry, by far, is that it can reduce pain and minimize use of anesthetic.
Soft tissue lasers are used on gum tissue. They are an alternative to the common hand-held scalpel, drills, or other tools.
We use hard tissue laser to perform functional and esthetic crown lengthening, frenectomy, bone contour, removal of soft and hard lesions, biopsy, etc. The advantages of using the hard laser are:
- It causes much less bleeding
- It's gentler to the tissue than burs, scalpels, or other traditional instruments
- Post-operation discomfort is much less, meaning faster healing
- It gets the job done more efficiently
Dental procedures can become much more comfortable for you! Dental lasers have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and are safe for both adults and children.
