Thanks to revolutionary development in light energy and soft tissue laser equipment, our Bridgeville, PA office is able to provide laser dentistry treatments that are comfortable and provide less downtime (faster healing) for our patients. In fact, lasers essentially eliminate swelling and bleeding, so procedures on soft tissues — such as treating tongue ties or gummy smile treatments — don’t cause any type of residual discomfort. Your results are immediate and there’s no need for suturing/stitches. The light emitted from our laser dentistry equipment is also used to speed up the oxidation and stain release process of our patients enjoying teeth whitening treatments, for faster and brighter results. We can even treat cold sores and ulcers so that they heal in half time they would on their own. If you’re starting to feel one pop up, call our office right away!
Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. Conventional treatments require a series of cleanings and maintenance procedures, but sometimes more aggressive gum surgery. With laser dentistry, we can safely remove infectious tissues and bacteria from the gums that are infected, making it easier for your body to heal itself. Laser dentistry works to destroy diseased tissues while leaving healthy ones intact!
Some types of laser dentistry can also be used on harder structures (like tooth enamel) instead of softer ones (gums and skin.) This characteristic makes laser dentistry a comfortable alternative to traditional drills and instruments that might cause discomfort and anxiety during your treatment. Combining laser treatments with a sedation dentistry appointment ensures the highest level of relaxation for our patients, especially those with dental anxiety or severe phobia of the dentist’s office.
