The use of laser technology has greatly benefited medical fields across the board, and dentistry is no different. Drs. Jennifer and Cory Chambers of Cobblestone Park Family Dental utilize laser dentistry to diagnose and treat various dental health issues, as well as perform cosmetic and general dental treatments. Thanks to laser dentistry, our dentists can provide faster, more comfortable dental care with a lower risk of complications and downtime, often with enhanced results.
What Does Laser Dentistry Treat?
- Crown lengthening
- Bacterial decontamination for root canals and periodontal cases
- Cold sore/fever blister treatments
- Tooth sensitivity treatments
- Dry socket relief
The laser technology our dentists use at our Oklahoma City practice allows them to complete an array of dental procedures including:
Cavity & Decay Diagnosis
Our diagnostic laser helps us detect micro-sized bacteria that are invisible to the naked eye. This allows us to diagnose and treat decay, cavities and other dental problems early, helping you avoid more invasive, painful (and costly) treatment in the future.
As a preventative treatment, our team can use laser dentistry to decontaminate the gum pockets to prevent the development of gingivitis and other stages of gum disease. The precision of the laser leaves the surrounding healthy gum tissue unharmed.
Gum scaling and root planing
For advanced stages of gum disease, gum scaling and root planing may be necessary. We use laser technology to penetrate deep into the gum tissue and root underneath the teeth to thoroughly clean the area and treat gum disease.
Gum Reshaping (Recontouring)
We can treat gummy smiles with a soft-tissue laser to reshape the gum disease and create a more balanced gum-to-teeth ratio.
During your in-office teeth whitening procedure, we apply a professional-grade bleaching agent to the teeth and activate its products with laser light. The laser light enhances and speeds up the bleaching process.
Treatment of Cold Sores/ Fever Blisters/ Canker Sores
Laser technology helps minimize pain from common mouth sores and speeds up their healing.
Advantages of Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry offers a number of benefits to our patients, including:
- Shorter treatment time
- Enhanced precision (cuts and reshapes tissue without harming surrounding tissue)
- Allows more preservation of tooth structure
- Less pain and discomfort
- Minimal bleeding during and after treatment
- Less need for anesthesia and injections
- Reduced post-op swelling
- Reduced risk of infection and other complications
- Faster healing and recovery time
Not only does the precision of laser dentistry mean enhanced treatment, healing and results, for many patients it also means a more comfortable dental experience. Laser dentistry eliminates the noise, vibration and pressure of dental drills and scalpels and allows us to complete procedures in a way that you will barely notice you are having any work done. Anxious or nervous patients no longer have to avoid dental work and can now sit back and relax as we do the work painlessly and efficiently.
