At Warren & Hagerman Family Dentistry , we use laser dentistry procedures at our Litchfield Park, AZ dental office to give our patients a more comfortable dental treatment experience.
Benefits of laser dentistry treatment include:
- Anesthesia is not required for many laser dentistry treatments.
- Recovery time post-treatment is generally much quicker than with traditional dental treatment.
- Laser dentistry treatments are often more comfortable for patients.
- The risk of bacterial infection is lowered due to the precision of laser dentistry treatments.
When severe gum disease cannot be cured with antibiotics or other treatment methods, you may need Dr. Warren or Dr. Hagerman to perform a gingivectomy using a dental laser.
A gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum tissue to eliminate pockets between the teeth and gums. After a gingivectomy, it will often be easier for you to keep your teeth and gums clean and slow the progression of gum disease.
This laser dentistry procedure has many different names, including laser gum reshaping, gum surgery, gum contouring, and dental crown lengthening.
Even if someone has straight, healthy, symmetrical teeth, their gum line may be uneven or fall too far below the lips. If you’re suffering from a “gummy smile”, laser dentistry could be the best way for you to get the beautiful smile you've always wanted!
Cold Sore Treatment
For patients suffering from cold sores or canker sores, Dr. Warren and Dr. Hagerman often recommend laser dentistry treatment. Laser treatment for cold sores works by heating the lesion in order to kill the virus and stimulate healing. Treatment typically lasts about 15 minutes, and most patients feel better immediately following their appointment.
Laser Root Desensitization
Tooth sensitivity is caused by a variety of factors. The roots of your teeth tend to show wear faster because the tooth is softer in that area. With laser root desensitization you can finally get relief from tooth sensitivity.
Our team will desensitize your tooth (or teeth) with a laser and place a tooth-colored filling over the area to protect it. Once the filling is in place our dentists will use a desensitizing sealer to complete your treatment.
