Dental Laser Treatments near Morrisburg
Dental lasers? Doesn’t that sound like something from a sci-fi series? As a matter of fact, lasers have been used in the medical field for quite some time. They serve a number of purposes in dental treatments, making procedures better and easier than ever before.
What Are Dental Lasers Used For?
Periodontal Cleaning: Using dental lasers can be used as a less-invasive gum disease treatment. They are capable of cleaning below the gum line with minimal disruption of the tissues surrounding the area.
Soft Tissue Surgeries: The precision and accuracy of a laser allow us to work in smaller areas and to avoid damaging nearby tissue, which in turn allows you to heal much faster.
Find and Treat Cavities: We have a great deal of technology that enables us to better see right inside the mouth. Lasers fit right in with this incredible selection. They can see things that traditional x-rays or intraoral cameras cannot.
Cavities are one of the most common problems treated by the average dental office. It’s part of our job to regularly check for decay. We do this in a number of ways, including x-rays, intraoral cameras, and in-person dental examination.
Cavities can be sneaky sometimes. They might lurk in places that a dentist or a traditional x-ray machine can’t quite see. Fortunately, there is a way around this problem. DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary dental laser that can find cavities while they’re still in their earliest stages.
DIAGNOdent dental technology uses a dental laser diode to inspect your teeth. It receives signals back from the tooth, which describe the exact composition of the tooth’s inner structure. In this way, the laser can register the beginnings of cavity development. This means we can fill the cavity sooner, use smaller fillings, and curb more severe complications before they develop.
There are so many benefits to laser dentistry, not the least of which is the improved ability to treat problems with increased precision and far less invasivity. In our Cornwall, ON, office we have five soft tissue diode lasers, allowing us to give you the fastest, most effective treatment available, and the shortest possible recovery time.
