Laser Dentistry, the Gentlest High Technology
One of the most remarkable new technologies for dental patients is the soft tissue laser. These new lasers work with extremely low power to microscopically explode the cells of the tissue rather than the traditional cutting wound of a scalpel. The laser allows us to address many simple problems of the gums and surrounding tissues quickly and with almost no discomfort. These new lasers are so gentle that only topical anesthetic creams are necessary – no shots!
Our practice uses the DEKA UltraSpeed CO2 Smart US20 D Laser in periodontal therapy (gum disease), implant dentistry, and even those pesky mouth sores. The incredibly rapid healing, due to the gentle nature of the laser, eliminates the normal postoperative discomfort of traditional dental procedures. Soft tissue lasers are setting a new standard in fast, pain-free dentistry.
