Gone are the days of sharp cutting instruments! We now live in a world where dentistry is a comfortable experience thanks in part to laser dentistry.
With laser dentistry, anaesthetic is not always necessary. There is also no drilling noise or vibration. Laser dentistry is so effective, it can, on occasion, take the place of root canal treatment.
ON TOP OF THIS, THE BENEFITS INCLUDE:
When it comes to laser surgery, you can be assured there will be less bleeding and swelling and a reduced need for stitches. Laser surgery promotes fast healing and many people report that after laser surgery they have little or no post surgical discomfort.
Lasers can be used for a wide range of dental procedures. At Pearl Dental Centre, laser dentistry practices are applied to the following specialist dental care areas:
LASER FLAP SURGERY
LASER GUM DEPIGMENTATION
The most common cause of darker pigments in the gums is genetics. Excess melanin can build up in the gums, making them look brown or black instead of pink. This is more common in certain ethnic groups like people with African or Middle Eastern ancestry. The extra pigment does not indicate any disease or dysfunction.Patients seek treatment because of an aesthetic preference for pink gums that showcase their teeth better.
LASER GUM RECOUNTERING
"Gummy smiles" are a very common problem, caused by overgrowth of the gum tissue, which covers the teeth.
This unsightly occurrence can be caused by a variety of things, including heredity, health conditions, and even the use of many common high blood pressure medications. A gummy smile will dominate the mouth, making the teeth seem almost secondary in appearance.
