Treating Your Smile With Advanced Dental Lasers

Our team will use advanced technology to treat poor oral health and address a variety of concerns, from cavities to sleep apnea! The technology means treatment is comfortable and rarely requires dental anesthesia. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about how we transform smiles with dental lasers.

The Benefits of Our Technology

Dental lasers can provide treatment with unrivaled precision, with care far more accurate than scalpels. They prevent damage to the treated areas, and also don’t require structure, so the treated areas heal much faster too. Since the technology essentially cauterizes the treated areas, the risk of bleeding, swelling, and infection is much lower too. Many people return to their normal routine after only a day of rest, and treatment doesn’t even require the use of dental anesthesia. We can employ our dental lasers to address a variety of oral health concerns, from general and cosmetic to restorative, and even to treat sleep disorders like sleep apnea!

Treatment Options

Our team could employ the laser technology to conduct a filling that requires no shots for anesthesia, creating a more comfortable experience for kids and adults alike. No numbness in the smile, and you can even return to work or school right after! The technology also helps preserve more healthy tooth structures and protects oral tissues in the process. The lasers also kill harmful oral bacteria, limiting the risk of future cavities too. We can also remove diseased tissue as part of your periodontal treatments, or even reshape the gum line if you have a gummy smile!

 If you have sleep apnea, in which soft tissues in the back of the moth and in the throat collapse and cut off airflow, then we could help. Sleep apnea could leave you feeling exhausted, and could even strain your immune system and heart health. Symptoms include daytime exhaustion and chronic snoring. Instead of relying on a loud and cumbersome CPAP machine to force airflow as you sleep, we could use the Nightlase® system. The technology helps shrink oral tissues that clog the airways, so you can breathe without interruption and avoid symptoms like exhaustion, irritability, and snoring.

If you have any questions about laser dentistry, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you enjoy optimal oral health, and treatment without precision and accuracy.
