The Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Gummy smiles and receding gums have traditionally been addressed using a dental scalpel. However, using scalpels for these common procedures can cause anxiety for some patients. To improve the safety and comfort of our patients, Morristown Cosmetic Dentistry utilizes high-quality dental lasers for many cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.
A dental laser is a fine-tuned, handheld instrument that delivers a beam of high-intensity light. The beam is very narrow and precise so it guarantees to only come in contact with the affected area leaving the healthy surrounding area untouched. Additionally, this makes it easier to control so that the depth and cut are kept at an absolute minimum. Your treatment will be fast, predictable, and easily controlled by your dentist.
For many soft tissue treatments, such as gum recontouring and treating gummy smiles, dental lasers offer these key benefits to patients:
- Ultimate Comfort: Dental lasers eliminate the need for traditional scalpels. Advanced dental lasers can skillfully remove unwanted gum tissue and often eliminate the need for anesthetic. Scalpels may feel uncomfortable as they scrape the gum tissue. Lasers offer painless treatment.
- Unmatched Accuracy: With advanced dental lasers, Dr. Gittleman can precisely target unwanted gum tissue and offer optimal, natural-looking results.
- Safety: Dental lasers seal blood vessels while removing unwanted gum tissue, decreasing bleeding, and eliminating the need for sutures. Lasers promote healing by stimulating the body’s natural ability to regenerate healthy tissues.
