What Procedures are Offered with Laser Dentistry

Imagine a dental experience where whirring metal drills are replaced by the gentle hum of laser beams. Where discomfort is less, and the recovery is swift. That’s the essence of laser dentistry, where precision meets dental innovation. The focused laser beams perform a spectrum of dental procedures in less time and with better accuracy than conventional dental treatments. Statistics indicate a growing adoption of laser dentistry, with an estimated 15% increase in dental practices incorporating laser technology. 

As your trusted dentist in Woodbridge, Mackenzie Dental Centre is proud to embrace laser technology for precision, comfort, and improved outcomes for individual patient requirements. Here’s a low-down on laser dentistry procedures at Mackenzie Dental Centre for those beaming smiles!

Redefining Traditional Gum Surgery With Lasers

What Procedures are Offered with Laser DentistryModern laser dentistry provides a gentler and faster healing alternative to traditional gum surgery. Our skilled dentists in Woodbridge treat gum disease by precisely targeting laser beams on bacteria and decayed gum tissue. These include laser gingivectomy and periodontal pocket reduction for specific gum conditions. They can then access and remove the deep-seated plaque and tartar around the tooth root.

Laser gum surgery does not require metal scalpels and incisions, so there is almost no bleeding and discomfort. Faster gum tissue regeneration and healing are other advantages of using dental lasers. Ask your Woodbridge dentist about dental laser surgery at Mackenzie Dental Centre today! 

Laser Cavity Detection 

Traditional dental exploratory tools to detect cavities could be more precise and painless. Thankfully, with laser cavity detection, dental professionals can pinpoint areas of decay with matchless precision. Our skilled dentists can scan the teeth using a dental laser to highlight demineralization areas indicative of early-stage cavities. Laser cavity detection and removal are swift and virtually painless, making them ideal for patients of all ages. 

Advantages include early cavity detection and painless elimination of tooth decay and bacteria. By catching cavities in their infancy, dentists in Woodbridge can implement timely interventions to prevent further decay and preserve tooth structure. So, ask about laser cavity detection at Mackenzie Dental Centre at your next dental check-up!

Reshaping Soft Tissue Using Laser Precision

From uneven gum lines to gummy smiles, aesthetic concerns can undermine one’s confidence and self-esteem. Thankfully, soft tissue reshaping with dental laser technology offers a precise and virtually painless solution. Unlike traditional dentistry, which typically involves cutting and suturing, laser soft tissue reshaping ensures minimal bleeding, discomfort, and downtime. 

Laser dentists in Woodbridge use light wavelength lasers or diode lasers to cut into soft gum tissues. These light lasers trigger a reaction when it encounters the soft gum tissue, allowing the laser to shape or remove it. These lasers also seal and cauterize the exposed blood vessels simultaneously. That’s why you don’t bleed much with laser dentistry; plus, there’s swifter healing and recovery. 

The skilled laser dentists at Mackenzie Dental Centre can gently sculpt the gum line to enhance the symmetry and appearance of your smile with remarkable precision. 

Exploring Laser Vs Conventional Dentistry

  • Cost: While laser dentistry may initially have a higher upfront cost, its precision and swift recovery outcomes can make it more economical by reducing the need for follow-up treatments.
  • Efficacy: Laser dentistry provides pinpoint precision with lesser damage to surrounding gum tissue. The result? More efficacious outcomes than traditional dentistry techniques. Laser dentistry also has lesser infection risks as lasers cauterize and seal soft tissues to minimize bleeding. Patient satisfaction rates with laser dentistry are consistently high—around 90% reported reduced discomfort and faster recovery.
  • Shorter Treatment and Healing Time: Laser procedures are often quicker than traditional methods, with reduced chair time and faster healing. Studies indicate that laser dentistry can cut treatment time by 20%, making it a preferred patient option. Conventional dentistry procedures require more tissue manipulation with scalpels and sutures, which can have longer healing times and greater discomfort.
  • Pain: Laser dentistry processes are less discomfiting, with reduced bleeding and lesser pain during and after laser surgery. Laser dentistry can reduce or does not even require anesthesia in many cases. However, the conventional dentistry arsenal includes scalpels, needles, and metal drills that can cause painful vibrations and tissue trauma. 
  • Candidacy: While most patients are candidates for laser dentistry, certain conditions and personal oral health requirements may require traditional treatment methods. Consulting with an experienced dentist in Vaughan can help determine the best approach for your individual circumstances.
