Comfortable, Advanced Laser Dentistry
In our continuing efforts to provide the best that modern dentistry has to offer, Dr. Koshki and our staff are certified in the use of specially-calibrated soft-tissue lasers for more comfortable and effective dental treatment. The narrow beams of concentrated light-energy allow Dr. Koshki to remove, reshape, or heal soft oral tissues with significantly improved accuracy, efficiency, and comfort.
Benefits of Laser Dental Treatment
Laser dental treatment may help us uncover a partially-erupted wisdom tooth before its removal, or obtain small tissue samples for a biopsy procedure to detect potential issues like oral cancer. For cosmetic uses, we often use the soft-tissue laser for cosmetic gum lifts to reshape and uplift uneven gum tissues. The laser eliminates the need for a scalpel, therefore the need for sutures after your procedure. The concentrated energy also cauterizes the tissue it passes over, minimizing bleeding and swelling while speeding up the healing process.
Treating Cold Sores
A particularly notable aspect of laser dentistry is that it can stop oral cold sores in their tracks. When a cold sore is about to form, our diode laser application can help stop its progression. Once the sore has erupted, laser treatment can help shrink the lesion and speed up the healing.
An Effective TMJ Disorder Treatment
Laser dentistry can also minimize the inflammation in jaw joints which often makes TMJ disorder very uncomfortable. By using our diode laser therapy on the outside of the jaw, we have helped many of our patients achieve results after only one or two sessions! As it is non-invasive and requires no medications, laser treatment can be a marvelous adjunctive therapy if you suffer from TMJ disorder.
Other Uses of Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry can also make a number of other treatments more comfortable and less time-consuming, including:
- Debridement of plaque and tartar on your teeth and teeth roots
- Minimizing inflammation and bleeding of the gums
- Reducing periodontal pockets that result from gingivitis
- More efficient periodontal cleaning (aka scaling and root planing)
