Laser dentistry is useful in treating the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Dental lasers can remove diseased or damaged tissue while stimulating the body’s natural healing response for a faster recovery. Norfolk, VA dentist, Dr. Cappy Sinclair can quickly and painlessly remove diseased tissue from the mouth and prevent the spread of infection. A dental laser can remove soft tissue, “cutting it away” without the use of a scalpel by vaporizing tissue with light energy.
The Waterlase Dental Laser
Dr. Sinclair utilizes The Waterlase dental laser to treat and repair damaged or diseased gum tissue due to gum disease that may have previously required oral surgery.
