The Laser Scanner Finds Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier
Have you ever had a dentist uncover a cavity and place an enormous filling, leaving you to wonder why the filling is so extensive if the cavity wasn’t there just six months before? The cavity was there six months before – it just wasn’t large enough to be detected on X-rays, and it wasn’t yet visible to the dentist. Our laser scanner discovers cavities years earlier, when a small cavity can be removed and the tooth fixed with a minor amount of invisible bonded filling.
Worried They’ll Knock Out a Tooth?
Each year five million teeth are lost due to traumatic injury in the United States. Many routine sports activities can be dangerous without the correct protection. And let’s face it; the one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores don’t always fit properly. A custom-made sport mouthguard fits appropriately, protects well, and can be utilized for any sport.
Laser Treatment – An Alternative to Traditional Gum Surgery
Considered an almost miraculous development, dental lasers provide a simple, often painless, and minimally invasive procedure for the effective treatment of gum disease. Because the process renders scalpels and sutures unnecessary, the healing process is usually quicker. The laser is safe and can actually help to increase bone mass that is often lost from gum disease. The doctor also uses the dental laser for cosmetic recontouring, treating canker and cold sores, and removing cysts or nodules on the lips, tongue, and gums.
Another amazing use of the laser is treatment of tongue-tie or lip-tie. In this case, the tissue securing the lip to the gums or the tongue to the base of the mouth is too tight, causing a variety of issues. The laser allows the doctor to trim this attachment without cutting, bleeding, or stitches.
