Sealy Dental Center in Katy uses laser dentistry procedures to give our patients the most comfortable dental treatment experience. Dr. Wurtzbacher make use of the latest laser dentistry technologies to deliver precise treatments in a shorter period of time.
Benefits of laser dentistry treatment:
- Anesthesia is not required for many laser dentistry treatments.
- Recovery time post-treatment is generally much quicker than with traditional dental treatment.
- Laser dentistry treatments are often more comfortable for patients.
- The risk of bacterial infection is lowered due to the precision of laser dentistry treatments.
When severe gum disease cannot be cured with antibiotics or other treatment methods, our doctors might need to perform a gingivectomy using laser dentistry.
A gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum tissue to eliminate pockets between the teeth and gums. After a gingivectomy, it will often be easier for patients to keep their teeth and gums clean and slow the progression of gum disease.
Even if someone has straight, healthy, symmetrical teeth, their gum line may be uneven or fall too far below the lips. If you’re suffering from a “gummy smile,” laser dentistry could be the right solution for your smile.
Cold Sore Treatment
For patients suffering from persistent cold sores or canker sores, our doctors often recommend laser dentistry treatment. Laser treatment for cold sores works by heating the lesion in order to kill the virus and stimulate healing. Treatment typically lasts about 15 minutes, and most patients feel better immediately following their appointment.
Biopsy and Lesion Removal
Laser dentistry is most impactful when used for biopsies and lesion removal. Using ultra-precise laser technology, our doctors are able to treat the area with minimal discomfort for the patient. In fact, smaller lesions are typically only treated with topical anesthetic for pain relief!
