Laser Gum Treatments Scarborough, Toronto

Laser Gum TreatmentsThere are many different types of lasers used in dentistry. The basic breakdown is either a hard tissue laser (used on teeth) and a soft tissue laser (used for gum tissue).

At our Scarborough Office we use a soft tissue laser for different periodontal (gum) procedures. If there is an overgrowth of gum tissue we can trim the excess using a laser instead of using the traditional scalpel. This is called a gingivectomy. There is minimal bleeding with a laser. This type of treatment allows the gum to heal much faster and with much less pain.

If there is an overgrowth of tissue a laser is an ideal instrument to remove this. Less bleeding and  no need to use stitches for healing.

When restoring a tooth with a filling or a crown we can control the bleeding in the area by using the laser. Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized. Wounds heal faster and periodontal tissues can be regenerated. Again when doing a procedure with the laser the tissue will heal much faster and with less pain.

The laser can also be used along with traditional scaling (cleaning) procedures. We can use the laser at a lower setting to sterilize a deeper pocket. The laser will kill the bacteria in the depth of the pocket and allow the infected pocket to heal.  Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss. Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on. This procedure is done 95% of the time without using anaesthetic.

Laser dentistry is safe, painless and can be used to allow better and quicker healing.
