Dr. Rahimi is a forward-thinking dentist, so he wants all of his patients to have access to cutting edge dental treatments. Unsurprisingly, he offers many laser dentistry procedures to Calabasas residents. Here’s an overview of laser dentistry, and some of its many benefits.
Laser dentistry can treat canker sores and cold sores, be used to treat root canal infections, and it’s even used to cure gum disease. Furthermore, laser dentistry can reshape gums, expose wisdom teeth, and remove benign oral tumors. Also, laser dentistry can be used to remove excess throat tissue that causes sleep apnea.
If we diagnose you with any of these oral health issues during your appointment with Dr. Rahimi, we may treat your condition with laser dentistry. If we decide that laser dentistry is the best treatment method, you can be confident that we’ll use only the latest and greatest laser dentistry technology to carry out your procedure.
In comparison to traditional oral surgery methods, laser dentistry offers an entire host of benefits. A lot of the time, patients will not need to have sutures, and sometimes, anesthesia may not even be necessary.
Lasers sterilize the gums which makes infection less likely, they cause less damage to the gums which decreases healing time, and patients lose less blood than with traditional oral surgery.
Thus, laser dentistry procedures usually require less recovery time than traditional dental procedures.
There are two main types of lasers used in laser dentistry procedures: soft tissue lasers and hard tissue lasers. Each type of laser is used to treat different oral health issues.
Hard tissue lasers are used primarily on teeth because they’re strong enough to cut through bone. Hence, these lasers are used to detect cavities, treat tooth sensitivity, and to prepare teeth for dental fillings.
Soft tissue lasers are better suited for cutting through soft tissue, and they seal exposed blood vessels at the same time. As a result, bleeding is minimized, and your gums heal faster than with traditional oral surgery. Soft tissues are used to lengthen crowns, reshape the gums in cosmetic procedures, and remove folds in oral tissue that may be caused by dentures.
If you’re a Calabasas resident who wants to be part of the future of oral surgery, please give us a call. We’d love to tell you more about the amazing benefits of laser dentistry.
