At your Santa Monica, CA dental practice, we use every option at our disposal to ensure the quality and care of your smile!

A Reliable Treatment For TMJ Disorder

If you wake up each morning with pain and stiffness in your jaw, you may experience TMJ disorder, a condition of the temporomandibular joint. This condition has many causes including excessive strain, and trauma, and can be the result of habitually grinding your teeth. To reduce the pain in your jaw caused by TMJ, laser dentistry can minimize inflammation and provide desirable relief. This non-invasive therapy offers the needed comfort to return your ability to chew and speak throughout your day.

Preventing And Shortening Cold Sores

If you notice a cold sore beginning to form, we can use laser therapy to halt its development and quicken your recovery process. While the virus that causes cold sores cannot be cured, the ability to reduce their number and severity is wonderful news to those who suffer from this common infection. Because sores tend to appear in the same locations, laser treatment may prevent them from appearing again in the treated area.

Treating Gum Disease With Laser Therapy

Because periodontal infection is a progressive disease, failure to seek treatment can lead to the loss of your teeth and other problems with your oral health. This is why your Santa Monica, CA dentist employs a dedicated periodontist to provide advanced care for your gum health. The use of lasers eliminates the need for a physical scalpel when performing a gum lift to reshape an uneven gum line. This technology also helps us remove plaque and tartar from your teeth’s roots to provide a more efficient periodontal cleaning.
