Laser dentistry is useful in treating the gums and soft tissues of the mouth that have become compromised from periodontal disease. Dental lasers can remove diseased or damaged tissue while stimulating the body’s natural healing response for a faster recovery. Laser dentistry allows your dentist to provide a pain-free and needle-free procedure that will leave you feeling clean and comfortable.
Coastal Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry has added this advanced dental technology to their practice to reduce pain and improve the patient experience. Many patients suffer from dental anxiety or fear of the dentist and avoid their regular dental checks, sometimes for many years.
This leaves them susceptible to dental issues such as gum disease. With the use of dental lasers, Dr. Cappy Sinclair and Dr. Mark Reichley can eliminate the diseased tissue with very little pain. The patient will not even need to be numbed before treatment so no needles are necessary to treat the gum disease.
It also does not produce any noise, unlike a typical dental drill. Many of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety enjoy laser dentistry due to the reduction in pain and also because it’s less invasive.
The Waterlase Dental Laser
In our dentist office, we utilize the Waterlase laser. This allows us to give patients extremely precise care that’s virtually painless. In particular, the laser is used to treat various stages of gum disease. The bacteria and plaque build up in the deep pockets that can form in the advanced stages of gum disease. With the precise abilities of the laser, it’s more accurate than traditional methods and has the added benefit of sterilization
With the laser, there’s no need to use a scalpel during the procedure. In addition, tartar is removed from the surface of your teeth. The laser is designed to stimulate bone regeneration, helping you recover from the deterioration that occurs with gum disease. After treatment with Waterlase, your gums and mouth are healthier right away.
