Laser dentistry can provide a unique and advanced care for a host of minor and serious oral health concerns. From cold sores to periodontal disease, we can offer relief with comfort. Our Mt. Pleasant, SC, dental team can use the Biolase and Thor lasers to help you enjoy optimal oral health once again!
The Treatments Lasers Offer
Our team can employ them to remove decay from a tooth prior to filling placement. We can also reshape gum tissues should you need a contouring procedure, and remove diseased tissues to aid in the management of periodontal disease, protecting you from the periodontitis stage, which is linked to adult tooth loss. Our team can also use them to remove diseased tissues as part of the root canal procedure, or to shrink cold sores and canker sores to help them heal much quicker. In short, this concentrated beam of light that is calibrated especially for dental uses can tackle cosmetic and restorative concerns quickly and with precision.
The Benefits of the Procedure
Our team uses the Thor laser, which is used to address soft tissue concerns and to also reduce discomfort using LED light technology. We also have Biolase with Waterlase system, which employs a laser in conjunction with a steady stream of water to replace the need for a shot and drill/scalpel as part of your treatment. The technology targets areas with precision, so there is no damage to healthy parts of your teeth or gums. There is little to no need for anesthesia, and the area heals much quicker, with a reduced risk of bleeding, swelling, and infection. No need for dentures or scalpels either.
Helping Patients with Dental Anxiety
If you have dental anxiety, you may feel uncomfortable with the idea of even minor dental treatments, especially if they involve a shot beforehand to administer a local anesthetic. With the use of this technology, we offer care without the need for shots, and provide treatment with comfort and accuracy. The procedure is quick, and you recover quickly with only a day of rest needed in most cases. This is very beneficial for people with anxiety, so they enjoy a positive and comfortable experience in our office.
