Focus on Comfort: Dental Lasers

Laser Cleanings

Dr. Salami now uses a low-powered laser for traditional cleanings. This revolutionary solution for removing plaque and killing bacteria is more comfortable than cleanings performed with metal tools and it's also faster. That means less time standing between you and your normal schedule.

Laser Surgery

But lasers are transforming more than traditional cleanings. They’re also transforming medical surgery by offering minimally-invasive alternatives to traditional scalpel incisions and sutured closures. Laser light is extremely efficient, producing very little heat as it acts on its target. This makes it ideal for oral surgery, since it seldom affects tissues other than those it targets. The laser provides precise control over the depth and extent of cutting, while simultaneously minimizing bleeding and sterilizing the treatment area.

Versatility and Applications

Soft tissue lasers can be used in a variety of circumstances. We’ve already mentioned that Dr. Salami uses them for cleanings. Another common use for soft tissue lasers—perhaps the most common use—is for periodontal therapy.  Not only does periodontal therapy eliminate the need for a scalpel or stiches, the procedure is more comfortable, takes less time, and only affects the tissue that needs treatment.

But in addition to treating gum disease, soft tissue lasers are also used for a cosmetic service like laser gum re-contouring. This unique service is intended for patients who would describe their teeth as stubby. Using a soft tissue laser, Dr. Salami can create a smile aesthetically sculpted smile that reveals more of your teeth and scales back your gum line. Other uses of laser dentistry of various kinds also include removing tissue from erupted and un-erupted teeth, treating ulcers, vaporzing decay, hardening dental materials, scanning for oral cancer, prepping teeth for fillings. Even more include root canal therapy, decay detection and elimination, incision cauterizing and tissue fusion, lesion reparation, biopsies, and super-fast teeth whitening procedures.
