Laser technology is changing the dental patient experience for the better. While lasers have been around for several years, advancements in technology and new applications are being uncovered at an accelerating rate in recent years. Laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue. Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments. Dr. Grumbach uses both a Diode Laser and a Biolase MD Waterlase, an advanced dental laser.
Dental lasers can be used to:
- Manage gum tissue during impressions for crowns or other procedures.
- Remove overgrown tissues caused by certain medications.
- Perform biopsy procedures.
- Remove inflamed gum tissues and aid in the treatment of gum disease.
- Remove or reshape gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedures.
- Help treat infections in root canals.
