Laser Dentistry For Gum Troubles
Gum disease is an increasingly prevalent problem. It’s also the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, in large part because gum disease can spread quickly if left undiagnosed or untreated.
The ordinary way to treat gum disease is with a surgery, involving scalpels and stitches. The infection is cut out and then the stitches help reattach the teeth and gums. It works well enough as a treatment. However, this process is invasive and also requires a significant amount of recovery time. And our patients want a more comfortable experience when they come to see us.
That’s one of the reasons why we have introduced the use of laser dentistry into our practice. The laser dentistry means you get to avoid scalpels and stitches. The laser simply evaporates the infection and the teeth and gums naturally reattach. The entire process can be completed with little to no pain, and you’ll have assurance that the gum issue hasn’t spread to other parts of your body.
Modern Orthodontic Treatments
For decades, orthodontics meant putting up with painful braces. People think about the uncomfortable brackets and wires and intense wire tightenings. Don’t get us wrong,braces are still a great way to treat extensive alignment problems or bite issues, but they aren’t the only way to get the job done. Obviously, not everyone out there with crooked, crowded or gapped teeth needs extensive orthodontic treatment. Some of us simply have mild issues.
In such cases, our office is using Invisalign clear aligners to give patients a straighter, more beautiful smile. Unlike conventional orthodontics, Invisalign doesn’t require any fixed appliances. It instead uses plastic trays to move the teeth into a more desirable position.
The treatment is not only invisible and more aesthetic, but it’s also more comfortable. You’ll never have a wiring tightening, and you won’t have to worry about brackets or wires scraping against your gums or cheeks creating sores or bleeding for you to deal with along the way.
Dental Sedation Allows For More Work At Once
We are well-versed in sedation dentistry techniques that not only calm you down, as a patient, but in many instances they also allow us to complete all of your dental treatment in one sitting. That’s a pretty big deal to us, and we think it will be to you, too.
Truth be told, we are one of very few offices in the area at which you can receive general anesthesia during your visits. This is possible because we have employed an in-office nurse anesthetist to improve your overall experience when necessary. So, if you ever find that you require more in-depth dental work, you can receive sedation and relax without really having to deal with the sights, sounds, smells, or sensations of the procedure.
