In every stream of medicine, laser technology has made advances. Laser Dentistry has also come a long way, and is currently being used on the teeth, on pockets of soft tissue, and on the gums. Laser technology allows for precision and accuracy when treating specific ailments. Beyond that, there is less swelling, and faster healing time. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre in Vaughan, Maple, and Woodbridge, Dr. Lloyd Pedvis uses a laser for a variety of treatments: everything from gum surgery; to treating herpetic sores; to contouring; to periodontal procedures. The best part is the excellent patient recovery time.
Laser Dentistry has noticeably improved patient service at the clinic. In a variety of oral surgeries and treatments, lasers have allowed for more effective restorative work, as well as more focused attention to the area that surrounds. This is all very good for a patient, particularly when comfort and wellbeing are the priority. Even with more invasive procedures, the addition of a laser device makes for a gentler treatment protocol, and less trauma for the patient. For a modern clinic like the Mackenzie Dental Centre, Laser Dentistry has allowed Dr. Pedvis to maintain a leading edge.
Lasers are both effective and efficient. There’s less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort compared to other options, and healing results after surgery are also better. Importantly, lasers reduce the incidence of bacteria, and therefore lessen the occurrence of infection. For Dr. Pedvis, the Sirona SIROLaser® is the laser technology of choice, with great patient benefits, regardless of treatment or procedure. Versatile as it is, SIROLaser® delivers excellent outcomes with cosmetic dentistry, endodontic procedures, and periodontic treatments. It’s ideal for patients with “dental anxiety”.
