Lasers, have now brought about a big revolution in the field of surgical dentistry. Imagine a visit to a dentist for a surgical procedure, but going through it without any scalpels, needles and stitches!! At GUMS N SMILES, you can have just that!!!
The diode dental laser allows us to treat many soft tissue procedures, previously only treatable by traditional periodontal surgery. Unlike a surgical procedure, laser treatments are less invasive and yet achieve the same results.
The laser treatment is a much more comfortable alternative to the traditional procedures as it requires less anesthesia. Also, the aftermath can be much more pleasant. Following a laser soft tissue treatment, the patient exhibits no discomfort.
Less bleeding, no stitches, less swelling, virtually no pain and faster healing, makes this an excellent alternative for all those who shiver under the scalpel!!! So now you can have treatments done for periodontal (gum) disease, gum lifts, gum reconstruction and various minor surgeries without fear.
LASER TREATMENT FOR PERIODONTAL(GUM) DISEASE
Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis are serious infections, that if left untreated can lead to tooth loss. Treatment of gum disease is aimed at cleaning the debris and toxins from beneath your gum line. This can now be accomplished virtuously painlessly and comfortably depending on the stage of your disease, using lasers. Laser light removes bacteria and diseased tissue from the pockets. Ultrasonic scalers and laser energy are used to remove tarter and debris from the root surface. The laser prepares the root surface to enable healthy gum attachment and aids in sealing the pocket closed.
Studies have shown the lasers ability to reduce 99% of bacteria in a periodontal lesion. In addition, the lasers can assist in forming a fibrin clot eliminating post surgical bleeding and providing a quick and comfortable healing. When lasers are used during periodontal therapy, there is less bleeding, swelling and discomfort to the patient. Scalpels and stiches are often not necessary!!!
So at GUMS N SMILES you can have a healthy and a harmonious gum line that is essential for a beautifull smile and that too without any pain or discomfort .No gains without pains is fast becoming an old adage!!. Dr Amit Gulati (board certified Periodontist) can help you smile confidently after a virtual painfree laser assisted periodontal treatment. Besides this, many minor surgeries to remove swellings, soft and hard tissue growths in and around mouth can be performed quickly and easily with a dental laser.
LASER TREATMENT FOR GUMMY SMILES
A “gum lift” is a cosmetic dental procedure that raises and sculpts your gumline. This procedure involving reshaping the gum tissue to create an appearance of longer and symmetrical teeth can be done easily with lasers and not scalpels!!! This treatment is typically done to reduce excessive gummy smile or balance an asymmetrical gumline. So, you can now smile with confidence after a virtually painless gum reconstruction!
LASER TREATMENT FOR DARK GUMS
Melanin hyper pigmentation or dark gums are prevalent in certain individuals. These dark pigmentationcan cause an undesirable appearance to otherwise healthy pink gums. Through lasers we can painlessly and accurately remove the problem areas in as little as one office visit and with a very quick healing time!!
