Laser Dentistry Technology
Here at Blacks Fork Dental, we use laser technology for several procedures. Each procedure that uses a laser is quicker, less painful, and easy to recover from. The lasers we use have a variety of functions. The Pioneer Probe is one laser that is specifically helpful with the following procedures.
Gum Contouring: When your gums cover too much of your tooth, we can easily use a laser to cut off some of your gums. Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure to make your teeth look longer and brighter. Our diode laser works to give you a clean cut and help you feel confident in your smile again.
Gingivectomy: We perform a gingivectomy to stop the progression of gum disease or help with overgrown gums. Again, this is a seamless procedure that cuts off the excess or infected gum. The use of the laser leads to a quick recovery.
Biopsy: We also use lasers for oral biopsies. A biopsy is a process of removing tissue or gum to send to a lab for further examination. This can help determine a disease, infection, or abnormal growth in your mouth. The laser helps with easy and painless removal of the tissue.
Cold Sores: Cold sores are viral infections aggravated by stress or hormone imbalance. We can treat cold sores with a laser to remove them in less than two days. If you have a cold sore, please come see us right away. The laser destroys the virus and stops it from spreading.
