Our experienced West Reno dental team loves working with lasers! The advancement of soft tissue technology allows him to provide a variety of comfortable procedures using laser dentistry that enhances the quality of oral health for our patients.
Periodontal Laser & Benefits
At West Reno Dental, we offer specialized laser dentistry treatments to help combat the signs of gum disease. This advanced technology is used in a wide range of gum treatments and offers heightened precision and control. Here are some of the many benefits of periodontal lasers:
- Faster treatment times
- More rapid healing
- Less painful (and in some cases, painless) treatments
- Optional anesthesia, in some cases
- Less bleeding when compared to traditional periodontal treatments
Cold Sore Removal
Some people get cold sores on a frequent basis. When they do, they typically feel a little itching or burning sensation at the site of the sore before it actually pops up. It’s key to call us right away once you feel this happening.
We will laser the area for about 3 minutes, and the lesion won't get nearly as big as it would had it not been treated. With laser dentistry, cold sores heal quickly and appear less frequently when compared to traditional treatments.
“Our cold sore treatments are just $50. Come see how comfortable this procedure can be!”
Soft Tissue Surgery
Do you have a gummy smile? Do your gumlines cover areas of the tooth that need to be accessed during a crown treatment? We can use lasers to recontour the gingiva along the front of your smile, to give you a healthier, fuller, more even smile.
“I typically only use a drop of anesthetic; just a very small amount. When we use the laser as opposed to a scalpel, things are done very easily and there’s very little or no post operative pain whatsoever.”
The tight skin just under the tongue or behind the lips is called the frenum. If it’s too tight, it can cause receding gumlines or interfere with speech. Tight frenums may even keep teeth spaced apart during orthodontic treatment. With a laser, we can quickly release the tense tissues without the discomfort of conventional surgery.
