We use a dental laser for several types of treatment, like detecting tooth decay or cavities, treating gum disease or canker sores, and reshaping gums without traditional surgery. Laser technology is less invasive, and enables us to perform more effective procedures and shorten treatment and recovery times.
Using a laser for dental surgical procedures means we can avoid traditional scalpels and sutures. Instead, the laser simply removes damaged or diseased tissue, and even boosts healing and kills bacteria in the mouth.
Laser-assisted gum disease treatment is not only effective, it’s quicker, minimally invasive, and offers better recovery times and outcomes. Talk with us about this improved method for treating periodontitis.
While lasers are at the forefront of dental technology, Dr. McCormick has also been using them in his practice for more than 15 years, and stays current on the latest research and applications in laser dentistry. His experience means patients can be confident in choosing laser treatment.
