Smiles Family Dental offers the latest minimally-invasive laser gum treatment options for patients in Flower Mound. Laser gum disease treatment uses a technology that has been in use for decades. It is performed using advanced equipment, such as the WaterLase® MD and PerioLase® MVP-7. Each of these systems is effective for various procedures that are pain-free, less-invasive alternatives to traditional surgical treatments.
Laser dental treatments are becoming commonplace for treating progressive gum disease. As your gums get worse, they may be red, swollen, or tender. You may notice bleeding. Bad breath, temperature sensitivity, and, ultimately, gum recession and loose/shifting teeth may become noticeable. The WaterLase system is unique in that it uses a combination of laser, water, and air energy. Concentrated water streams react with water molecules in teeth; the system can be used to painlessly cut through a tooth.
Your Flower Mound dentist may also use the PerioLase® MVP-7, a digital laser system that offers the flexibility of seven pulse durations. It’s, therefore, suitable for many types of laser-tissue interactions and different procedures. Parameters are pre-set for 20 of them, so all the dentist must do is select the settings from an on-screen menu.
Lasers may be used by a periodontal disease dentist or cosmetic dentist. The benefits over traditional procedures include:
Smiles Family Dental uses lasers for a variety of treatments, so your Flower Mound dentist or periodontist may include laser therapy for a range of procedures.
