Precise, Minimally Invasive Treatment with Laser Dentistry
Dental lasers offer a minimally invasive alternative for a variety of dental procedures. Using extremely focused beams of light, dental lasers can remove and shape tissue with little to no discomfort. Laser dentistry can also reduce recovery time and minimize the chance of infection. At H&M Family Dentistry in Aurora, CO, we have incorporated lasers into our practice to improve the overall quality of care we can offer for our patients. Drs. Hua Gao and Xiaomei Sui use dental lasers to provide treatment for gum disease and other oral health issues, as well for cosmetic procedures.
How Dental Lasers Work
Laser technology uses quick pulses of light for precise and minimally invasive tissue removal. The energy applied by the laser vaporizes the tissue and cauterizes the area at the same time. Using a laser means less damage to healthy tissues surrounding the treatment areas. Dental lasers are used in a variety of procedures, such as:
- Cosmetic gum contouring
- Gum disease treatment
- Teeth whitening
- Root canal therapy
- Dental implants
Dr. Gao or Sui can precisely adjust the wavelengths of the laser to ensure the best possible results for each situation.
How We Use Laser Dentistry
At H&M Family Dentistry, we use lasers most often for the treatment of issues related to the gums. Using our dental lasers, we can perform a variety of cosmetic and medical gum treatments to improve the appearance of your smile and your overall oral health.
If you suffer from gum disease, Dr. Gao or Sui can use the laser to remove bacteria below the gum line. The same device can eliminate diseased tissue to restore your periodontal health. In addition, our team provides cosmetic gum contouring using dental lasers. The laser can precisely sculpt the tissue for a beautiful and symmetrical result.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Dental lasers are safe, effective, and minimize or even eliminate discomfort. Using a laser, we can perform many of the same procedures without a drill or anesthesia. Overall, lasers offer a range of benefits over other forms of treatment, including:
- Reduced postoperative symptoms: Since laser treatment is less invasive, there is a lower chance of frustrating or uncomfortable symptoms during the healing process.
- More precise: The advanced precision of dental lasers means your dentist can preserve more healthy tissue during treatment.
- Minimized chance of infection: Lasers cauterize the treatment area while they remove tissue, a process which significantly reduces the possibility of infection occurring.
- Improved comfort: Laser treatment is not only less painful, but the devices are significantly quieter than drills. This ensures a more comfortable experience overall.
No Incisions and No Sutures
Traditional forms of gum surgery require multiple incisions and sutures. With a dental laser, Drs. Gao and Sui can often achieve similar or superior results with minimal disturbance to the surrounding tissue.
Experience Superior Results
Laser dentistry offers substantial advantages over traditional methods using drills and scalpels. At H&M Family Dentistry, we are proud to incorporate this advanced treatment method to improve the comfort and health of our patients.
