Gum Disease Laser Therapy
Dr. Ord is proud to offer another technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There can be advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry:
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, and no drill noise or vibration. Postoperative sensitivity can be limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time can be much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated:
Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Often, only a light anesthetic gel is required. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.
Uses of Dental Lasers:
Dr. Ord can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, crown lengthening, remove soft tissue lesions, and other gum surgeries. Dr. Ord is also able to use laser technology as a way to help regenerate healthy gums and remove diseases areas in a virtually painless way. This method also encourages healthy gum to regenerate and attach to the teeth.
