Laser Dentistry in Nederland TX
Anytime we can implement a treatment technique or tool to make procedures more accurate, less painful, and more successful for our patients, we research it. That is why, after careful evaluation, we decided to bring laser dentistry to our Nederland dental office.
We use laser dentistry in many ways, replacing traditional surgery requiring a scalpel and stitches. This means higher accuracy, shorter healing times, no bleeding, and perhaps most important to our patients – minimal discomfort. Laser dentistry makes your surgical treatment much less invasive.
Chances are unless you or your child needs a frenectomy, you have probably never heard of it. A frenectomy is the surgical removal of your frenum, a muscular attachment that holds two different areas of your tissue together. You have two frena in your mouth that could create a potential problem.
The first one attaches your tongue to the floor of your mouth. This frenum can cause problems with your speech and ability to pronounce certain words. The second one attaches the inside of your upper lip to your gums between your two front teeth. This frenum can create a gap between your two front teeth.
In the past, traditional surgery was the only solution. Lasers have improved treatments for these conditions dramatically by cutting down on healing time, pain, and bleeding. Overall, lasers make this a much easier experience for our patients.
By detaching the frena, you can achieve normal function and growth. Because Dr. Gomez is highly skilled and talented when it comes to frenectomies, your laser treatment will be gentle and easy.
Gummy Smiles and Gingival (Gum) Sculpting
Have you ever looked at your smile and noticed that your gums seem too large for your teeth? Fortunately, we have options to help address the appearance of gummy smiles. When used alone or in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, laser dentistry can create a new gingival contour and eliminate your excess tissue. Laser treatments promote fast healing and you can have a healthy, beautiful smile.
Effective Periodontal Treatments
Lasers are great for treating stubborn periodontal conditions. Periodontal disease is an infection in your gums. Sometimes bacteria develop below your gum line and create a periodontal pocket. Use of a dental laser can eliminate diseased tissue, bacteria, and encourage your healthy tissue to regenerate. In combination with proper dental hygiene, lasers can increase your chances of recovery with less pain and fast healing.
