Here at Bold Smiles Dental, we are always learning and striving to advance the standard of patient care in our office. As such, we are proud to offer laser technology to our patients.
Lasers can be used for many different dental procedures. Some lasers use light energy to painlessly target and kill the bacteria that can cause gum disease, recontour or shape gum tissues, or to treat mouth sores. Other lasers can be used to detect or fix cavities.
Gum disease affects approximately 80% of adults and is a growing epidemic in our society. Understanding of this disease has increased greatly over the last few years. With that in mind, we offer our patients the laser to assist in decontaminating the gums during our cleanings and help heal infections or to prevent contamination of healthy gums from diseased gum tissue.
The laser decontamination process is painless and normally takes about 5-10 minutes. We highly recommend that you take advantage of this cutting edge service as part of your routine cleaning.
If you have any questions or concerns about lasers in dentistry and how we can help your smile stay beautiful and healthy, don’t hesitate to contact us today.
