Laser gum treatment
For gum disease, procedures, and soft tissue treatments, Inova Dental offers you the laser technique, a tool at the cutting edge of technology that offers many advantages.
Laser dentistry replaces all traditional dental procedures that could be more painful.
What is the laser technique?
There are different types of laser to treat and intervene in different situations. This advanced technology consists of using a light beam projected by a dental laser. This beam causes an increase in temperature according to the parameters chosen, depending on the treatment to be carried out.
In what procedures is it used?
The laser has several virtues that will allow your dentist to use it in various problematic gum situations diseases.
Here are some of the procedures that the laser will treat.
- Gingivectomy which consists of intervening on the height of the gum by removing part of it
- Gingivoplasty which aims to reshape the gum without touching its height
- Hyperplasia, which removes excess tissue (gums)
- The operculectomy, which aims to remove part of the gum covering an erupting tooth
- Frenectomy, which is the surgical excision of a frenulum or a membranous attachment (lingual or labial frenulum)
- Removal of an epulia
People with gum disease or in need of soft tissue intervention will appreciate this laser technology which offers many benefits. Here are a few :
The light beam is very precise, which avoids affecting too much of the soft tissue and really targeting the target area. We also manage to better preserve the natural tooth.
Decreased bleeding gums
The laser reduces the risk of bleeding during and after the procedure because it has a hemostatic effect, which means that it limits bleeding. Plus, your VMR Dental Health dentist can work faster as there is less blood clogging their work.
Using the laser – not an instrument like a scalpel – to make the incision will allow the wound to heal more quickly as the healing process accelerates and tissue regenerates.
The laser eliminates the need for most patients to perform the procedure under anesthesia. In some cases anesthesia will be necessary, but the dose given will be very small. This process will therefore be suitable for children and pregnant women. By avoiding anesthesia, the risk of side effects, allergic reactions and bacteriological resistance is eliminated.
