We recently discussed how we use digital technology to provide better and more accurate x-rays. But we can also use advanced technology to diagnose cavities and correct periodontal concerns. In today’s blog, your Syosset, NY, dentist talks about how we offer advanced dental care with our dental laser technology.
To diagnose cavities in the earliest stages of demineralization, we can employ the DIAGNOdent system. A special diode laser is used to examine the teeth and compare baseline wavelengths of healthy teeth to yours, so we can pinpoint the presence of decay. The tool is small and narrow, so we can examine the teeth and take pictures quickly and comfortably. Once we identify cavities, we can take steps to treat them and prevent them from growing more severe, protecting your smile from tooth sensitivity and toothaches, as well as infection and tooth loss. This helps you preserve and safeguard your smile!
Treating Soft Tissue Concerns
We also have a soft tissue diode laser that helps address periodontal disease and even provide minor soft tissue surgical treatments. The laser rarely requires the use of anesthesia, and provides care with comfort. There is a significantly reduced risk of bleeding and infection, and the healing period is so much shorter than one could expect with scalpels and sutures, which some people return to normal activities after one a day! The technology is quiet, prevents swelling afterward, and offers care with precision and accuracy, while protecting surrounding tissue from damage.
We can use this to treat gum disease by removing diseased tissues. We can also reshape the gum line with gum lifts and contouring, so we address esthetic problems and gingival health at the same time. We can also perform biopsies if we find possible cancerous or precancerous areas, and perform other tasks as well!
