New Age Dental is equipped with an advanced diode laser capable of treating soft tissues. Laser dentistry provides a more comfortable patient experience and treatments can be more effective. We may use laser dentistry as a standalone treatment or in combination with other procedures. It can be particularly useful when treating infected gums, a condition called periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection. By using a dental laser, we can effectively sterilise infected gums and if necessary can remove gum tissue too badly damaged to heal. Laser dentistry is incredibly precise so we can make sure healthy tissues are left fully intact. Afterwards healing is faster and more comfortable because the energy produced by a dental laser automatically seals any blood vessels, so you will not need stitches and are likely to experience less swelling.
Laser dentistry is also helpful when treating gummy smiles, where teeth are covered up with too much gum tissue. By gently reshaping your gums we can safely create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
