At Lumident, we use high-tech dental lasers to provide you with optimal care and unparalleled versatility. Lasers have revolutionized the way we practice dentistry, as they have allowed us to perform more procedures, in less time, with better results than traditional methods. Patients also benefit from a higher standard of care, experiencing faster treatment and healing times with less overall discomfort.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
•Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches).
•Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia.
•Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
•Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on.
•Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized.
•Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
Laser Dentistry Procedures
•Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
•Gummy Smile Remodeling: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
•Muscle Detachment (Frenula): A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.
•Removal of Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis): Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
•Benign Tumor Removal: Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of benign tumors from the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips.
•Cold Sores (Herpes) Treatment: Low intensity dental lasers reduce pain associated with cold sores and minimize healing time.
•Aphtous Ulcers Treatment
•Nerve Regeneration: Photobiomodulation can be used to regenerate damaged nerves, blood vessels and scars.
•Temporomandibular Joint Treatment: Dental lasers may be used to quickly reduce pain and inflammation of the temporomandibular jaw joint.
•Teeth Whitening: Low intensity soft tissue dental lasers may be used to speed up the bleaching process.
