Laser Dentistry for Composite Fillings
Our dentists utilize laser technology when applying composite fillings—the kind that is color-matched to adjacent teeth, so the filling is undetectable. The heat and light generated by the laser force a sturdy and durable bond between the composite filling material and the tooth. The results of composite fillings sealed with lasers are long-lasting and strong enough to endure many years of normal wear and tear.
Laser Dentistry for Periodontal Therapy
Periodontal disease, otherwise known as gum disease, plagues the gums, the soft tissues, and the bones that secure your natural teeth in place. When these become infected, the teeth are more prone to falling out.
To avoid this fate, and effectively treat periodontal disease, scaling and root planing are necessary to rid the gums of the stubborn buildup of tartar, plaque, and miscellaneous debris. A laser makes the scaling and root planing both more effective, as well as able to recover more quickly.
Precision is key, and the use of lasers in periodontal therapy ensures a more precise procedure that doesn’t affect the surrounding healthy tissue. The sterile seal created by the intense light of the laser enables fast healing, as well.
Laser Dentistry for Oral Cancer Screenings
As with all forms of cancer, early detection is imperative to stopping cancer in its tracks. If your dentist spots an abnormal lesion or growth inside your mouth, he may employ the use of laser technology to perform a biopsy to check for oral cancer.
Here at NY Smile Creators, Drs. Gochman and Bharait rely on laser dentistry for many different kinds of procedures for more comfortable and efficient experiences for our patients. With this innovative technology, we’re able to provide the highest quality dental care in the Queens area.
