Gum disease affects the majority of adults living in the United States to some extent, and its prompt treatment is vital for continued good oral and overall health. Gum disease occurs when harmful oral bacteria makes a home between your teeth and gums, eventually creating deep pockets of infection in the gum tissue.
Traditional treatment for gum disease requires invasive tools and lengthy procedures, but with the soft tissue laser, Dr. Hackbarth can zap through the bacteria-filled pockets to stop infection at the source. The soft tissue laser also promotes reattachment of the gums to the teeth to stop infection from occurring again.
In addition to treating gum disease, we can also use the soft tissue laser for the following procedures:
Detecting cavities early is key for being able to provide the most conservative treatment. The DIAGNOdent laser allows us to catch weak spots in the enamel much sooner than is possible with the naked eye or even dental X-rays. We use the DIAGNOdent during your routine checkup and cleaning at the Dental Cosmetic Center. Sometimes, we can spot weak spots in the tooth enamel early enough that they can be strengthened, preventing a cavity and the need for a filling.
The DIAGNOdent is a portable handheld tool that we move all over your tooth enamel. It emits a small laser beam and detects any existing problems, transferring the information to a special software. Here, our team can read the map of your teeth and remineralize weak spots or provide early treatment for existing cavities.
Healthy periodontal (gum) tissue is vital for a long-lasting, beautiful smile. The soft tissue laser helps us treat periodontal issues more easily and comfortably than ever. Compared to traditional invasive procedures, the benefits of laser dentistry are significant. They include comfort, efficiency, and a faster recovery.
