Dental Laser Treatments
- At Reliance Dental, we use dental lasers to perform procedures that require soft tissue surgery. For example: removing soft tissue growths, biopsies, frenectomies (removing lip tie or tongue tie), to slope gums for aesthetic smile enhancement, as well as healing cold sores. Lasers are also used to help with the treatment of gum disease.
ADVANTAGES OF LASER DENTISTRY INCLUDE:
- Reduced postoperative infection/discomfort
- Reduced appointment time
- Less pain
- Minimal or no anesthesia
- Minimal bleeding
- Controlled swelling
- A more sterile environment (dental laser kills bacteria)
- For the treatment of canker sore and herpes lesions, the laser can actually decrease the pain experienced by these sores
It must be noted that the use of a dental laser may not be the appropriate for all procedures. Your dentist can determine which treatment will work best for you.
