What are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?
There are many benefits of laser dentistry. Many treatments completed with a dental laser are very comfortable and may not require the use of an anesthetic. Dental lasers also shorten treatment and healing time and decrease the risk of infection following treatment. In addition, lasers minimize bleeding both during and after treatment, and because they are very precise, we can treat the targeted area without affecting nearby healthy tissues. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about the advantages of laser dentistry in Park City.
Types of Dental Lasers
The term “laser” means “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.” Erbium/Yag laser is one of the most sophisticated laser wavelengths that helps resolve some of the most significant dental problems. Hard Tissue Laser and Soft Tissue Laser are the two types of dental lasers.
Hard Tissue Laser: Hard tissue lasers can be used to cut through bone and teeth accurately. In addition to shaping teeth for composite bonding, they routinely repair dental fillings and remove a tiny bit of tooth structure.
Soft Tissue Lasers: These lasers can encourage tissue regeneration and kill bacteria. They are widely used by periodontists during procedures to treat gums. They are also used for surgical incisions.
Ozone Therapy in Park City
In addition to laser dentistry, our office is proud to offer ozone therapy in Park City, Utah. Ozone therapy is an alternative medicine that uses ozone, a gas of three oxygen atoms, to treat various conditions and diseases.
Ozone therapy is the process of administering ozone gas into your body to treat/stimulate the immune system. Ozone is used as an anti-inflammatory and anti-viral treatment. Ozone therapy performs a multitude of healing functions that can last from days to weeks! We can administer it slowly through ear insufflation, as a shot, or on a decayed tooth to stop decay and strengthen teeth.
Ozone is effective in treating many conditions, including:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Bad breath
- Cold sores
- Canker sores
Ozone therapy is a safe and effective way to treat these conditions and can be used in conjunction with other dental treatments, such as laser dentistry. To learn more about ozone therapy and how it can benefit you, call or visit us today!
