Laser Treatment

Dental lasers are one of the newest advancements in dentistry, having been approved by the FDA in 1990. Lasers assist dentists like Dr. Meinerz, and Dr. Fakler of All Kind Smiles delivers better service to patients by being minimally intrusive and incredibly precise.

What is the Procedure for Laser Dentistry?

Dr. Meinerz and Dr. Fakler employ a high-powered laser with a wavelength of 810-1,100nm and a glass fiber to direct it. The tissue that contacts the fiber is “vaporized.”

Traditional equipment like drills and scalpels can be useful, but they can also be intrusive and uncomfortable. Our specialists can provide excellent treatment while reducing pain, discomfort, and recovery period by using laser dentistry.

If you are worried about an upcoming dental procedure, laser dentistry can help you relax while still getting the care you seek.

What Procedures Can Lasers Perform?

Dental lasers can be used for a wide range of operations. It is used for the treatment of:

  • Periodontal disease (gum disease) – Lasers can be used to eliminate plaque and tartar from between the teeth and gums and clean the tooth roots and remove damaged gum tissue.
  • Gum reshaping/gingivectomy – To restructure gum tissue and remove superfluous tissue, lasers can be employed. This could be done as part of periodontal therapy or as an elective cosmetic procedure.
  • Biopsies and lesion elimination – Lesions like Canker sores and Cold sores are treated with lasers by our doctors. If abnormal tissue is found during an oral checkup, lasers can also be used to take a biopsy.

Advantages of Laser Dentistry

Why should you see Dr. Meinerz or Dr. Fakler at All Kind Smiles for laser treatment?

Does not need anesthesia- Because lasers are less intrusive, many treatments can be completed without anesthetics.

Specific procedures may not require stitches – Because the laser’s heat cauterizes (seals) the tissue it cuts through. As a result, bleeding is limited, and most minor surgeries do not necessitate the use of stitches.

Minimal damage to surrounding tissues – Lasers are more specific than drills or scalpels, causing less harm to surrounding tissue. As a result, laser therapy is usually quicker and retains more of your natural tooth or gum tissue.

Quicker recovery time – Compared to a regular operation, laser surgery has a substantially shorter recovery time since the impact on surrounding tissues is decreased.
