Laser dentistry provides patients with easier dental surgery. Typically, this means less bleeding, less discomfort, no sutures and a faster recovery time.
In Hampton, your dentist likes to bring technologies into our dental practice that promote patient comfort and superior outcomes. We believe that laser dentistry qualifies for both.
Laser Dentistry Benefits
If you have uneven gum tissue or a gummy smile, gingival recontouring through laser dentistry may be the solution you’ve been looking for. With our gentle laser, we can sculpt the gum tissue to be even and complement your smile.
If you have short teeth, we can also work with your gum tissue to give your teeth a more elongated appearance—reversing the gum to tooth ratio.
Laser dentistry can also reverse a tongue or lip-tie, a thick band of tissue beneath the tongue or behind the upper lip. Tongue and lip-ties can cause feeding problems in children and difficulty with speech and communication.
Laser dentistry in Hampton also plays a key role in periodontal disease treatment.
Laser Dentistry and Periodontal Disease in Hampton
Periodontal disease is a serious condition of your gums and soft tissue. It means infections and inflammation that threaten the stability of your teeth and even other body systems like the heart and lungs.
Through laser dentistry, your dentist can gently clear away diseased tissue to help healthier gum tissue adhere to your teeth. This promotes healing and improved oral health. We believe that this is a superior method compared to the scalpel-and-sutures ways of the past.
