How Lasers Help Us Focus On Your Comfort
Dr Le has four different types of lasers used for cold sores, TMJ pain, joint pain, periodontal therapy, etc.
Dental lasers are used for different procedures. They are safe and very effective. The soft-tissue laser does not cut tissue but rather cell by cell in a controlled manner that enables faster and better tissue healing. Dr Le and his highly trained team of hygienists use the laser as an adjunct to scaling and root planning. Learn More.
'LASER' is an acronym for "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation". … a complicated string of words meaning a single wavelength beam of highly concentrated light energy. It is precisely that high energy that has made lasers so useful in both general medicine and dentistry. The laser's intense, narrow wavelength has specific, predictable and powerful effects when it contacts hard and soft tissues of the body. It is no wonder that the laser can be such an advanced tool in the hands of a skilled professional.
The laser beam can be precisely directed to only those tissues needing treatment. The way it works virtually eliminates bleeding and sterilizes the area at the same time. All of this translates to higher quality treatments, better outcomes, and greater comfort for the patient. Current dental applications include gum disease treatments, cosmetic gum re-contouring, root canal therapy, decay detection and elimination, incision cauterizing, removal of growths, and biopsies.
