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
Cavity & Decay DiagnosisOur 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.
Gum DecontaminationAs 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 planingFor 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.
Teeth WhiteningDuring 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 SoresLaser technology helps minimize pain from common mouth sores and speeds up their healing.
