Dental technology is constantly evolving, and new technologies are always coming to dentists’ attention. One revolutionary dental technology that we find especially exciting is laser dentistry.
Why are Cosmetic Dentists excited about dental laser? What makes dental laser special?
Dental lasers have been one of the most effective advances in dental technology for reducing patient anxiety. Lasers are free of the sounds and sensations associated with drills and picks, which many patients find anxiety-inducing. Dental lasers are incredibly precise, easy on tissues, and promote rapid healing. How could we not get excited about a technology that improves both the quality of our dental work and your patient experience? Learn more about a few of the laser systems used at Cherry Creek Dentistry, your Cosmetic dental practice.
DIAGNOdent Classic: When you have a cavity, you want to know immediately so that the decay can be eradicated and your mouth returned to excellent health. The DIAGNOdent laser ensures that your dentist discovers tooth decay as early, efficiently, and non-invasively as possible. The laser indicates decay while simply passing over the tooth. Laser technology measures the tooth’s reflection of certain types of light to determine mineral content. This means that the Diagnodent discovers any tooth decay, even that below the enamel’s surface, in fissures, or buried in the tooth’s structure. Here at Cherry Creek Dentistry, we use Diagnodent at every cleaning to ensure you are receiving the best possible cavity detection.
More and more patients at Cherry Creek Dentistry place value on healthy and attractive teeth. In order to maintain them, the earliest possible care is essential. DIAGNOdent aids in the detection of cavities. You don’t have to wait till your tooth hurts to fix the issue. Even very small lesions are detected at the earliest stage, enabling you to protect and preserve the tooth substance.
Soft tissue Biolase diode laser: A soft tissue laser treats your mouth’s soft tissues with minimal pain or collateral damage. Rendering anesthetic less necessary and recovery time shorter, soft tissue diode lasers are incredibly versatile. The laser creates an intense, focused beam of light energy that causes a localized thermal reaction, resulting in the vaporization of the targeted tissue. At Cherry Creek Dentistry, we use a laser to treat aphthous ulcers (canker sores), heal infected gingival tissue, or to cosmetically shape your gum line. This laser procedure is done by removing unhealthy tissue, heal ulcers, or used to create tissue symmetry to achieve optimal cosmetic dentistry results.
After you experience an appointment featuring laser dentistry, you’ll be as thrilled as we are that this technology exists in the modern dental world. Schedule a cleaning or appointment at Cherry Creek Dentistry with our team to discover the laser difference!
