Your Dental Laser Dentist in Salem OR
Laser dentistry is transforming dental experiences for thousands of patients. Salem Dental is proud to be an advanced laser dentistry office. The dental laser makes dental procedures more comfortable and accurate than ever before.
The dental laser emits light which contains an enormous amount of energy, but it can be precisely controlled and manipulated. The dental laser does not cut tissue in the traditional sense. Instead, it evaporates or disintegrates the tissue, resulting in a cleaner procedure and faster healing time.
How is the Dental Laser Used?
Our Salem dentists have incorporated a soft tissue dental laser into our daily practice. With this form of laser dentistry, dentists can perform:
- Gum recontouring or shaping
- Identification of some caries
- Flap surgery
- Exposure of unerupted teeth
- Destruction of lesions
- Soft tissue crown lengthening
With soft tissue laser dentistry, these procedures and so many more can be more successful and comfortable for the patient.
Gum recontouring is the procedure we perform most frequently with the dental laser. What is gum recontouring? It is reshaping the gums to give them a more appealing look.
If your gums sit too high or too low on your teeth, you may be interested in gum recontouring at Salem Dental. Gum recontouring can push the gum line up or even out the gumline to completely revolutionize your smile.
Some patients who are unhappy with their gums avoid treatment because they are worried about the pain and recovery associated with the scalpel. At Salem Dental, we skip the scalpel altogether and use the painless dental laser. Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding and pain, and will significantly shorten your recovery time.
Don’t keep worrying about your “gummy” smile. Gum recontouring is a simple fix at Salem Dental with our artistic dentists and laser dentistry.
