Dental Laser Technology Right Here In Ladera Ranch

Dr. Parker and his team strive for the best in dentistry so their patients can have the best possible experience.

Many times in treating your teeth, the gums will need modification. There are several reasons why the gums will need to be altered:

– Inflammation from bacterial infection
– Overgrowth
– Uneven height from tooth to tooth

When the gums are bleeding and inflamed, it is difficult to get restorations done predictably and cleanly.

A laser is a great tool in these circumstances. It will disinfect the tissue by not only killing bacteria but removing the diseased tissue.

The best part about the laser is the limited pain induced and the great healing afterwards. Many patients report no post operative pain but greater comfort due to the removal of the infected tissue.

Cosmetics?

Many times on front teeth, the gum line will be off. When Dr. Parker evaluates front teeth and the overall aesthetics, this is an important factor.

The laser is very non-invasive and allows Dr. Parker to adjust the height of the gums to get a more uniform look throughout the smile line. Because the laser is so precise the healing is so quick, painless, and ideal. With the laser he is able to do so much more for you, the patient.

Other uses?

The laser can be used for multiple treatments:
– Cold sores
– Tongue tied
– Large frenum attachments

When a cold sore arises, the laser can be used in a non-cutting mode to limit the pain and shorten the healing time. Many patients say that the cold sore will come back less frequently in the same spot. This can be done without anesthetic, as the area will just feel warm for the treatment time.

If some surgery is required for a tied tongue or a large frenum creating speech and other issues, the laser is an ideal option. The laser is able to slowly and with little pain, go through the tissue and remove the unwanted areas.
