Laser Dentistry in SW Calgary

Reduced pain, increased precision, faster recovery time – experience the restorative benefits of laser dentistry in Calgary

Whether it’s gum disease, gum surgery, canker sores, or anything in between, laser dentistry in SW Calgary can help with your dental health issues. A modern oral care procedure, laser dentistry uses a laser to remove or alter small amounts of tissue. At Lakeview Dental Centre, we use soft tissue diode lasers. A laser is a high-tech device that generates a tiny beam of highly concentrated light. This beam of light brings energy into your mouth through a small fibre to help clear areas of infection and gum disease around teeth with great precision and accuracy.

The laser beam sterilizes the affected area and seals off blood vessels, which minimizes the chance of infection and bleeding. Patients are also much more comfortable during and after treatment with laser therapy. The need for local anesthetic is reduced but is often still used to ensure you feel nothing during the treatment.

A more relaxing dental experience

Laser dentistry

Laser therapy is gentle with little discomfort

Laser therapy promotes faster healing, reduces the risk of infection, decreases sensitivity, helps reduce anxiety, and minimizes bleeding, swelling, and post-treatment discomfort. In addition, when treating patients with periodontal disease, the laser probe can be introduced into the pocket and provide a bactericidal and detoxifying effect.

Patients notice how quickly the gum tissues are treated, and there is little postoperative discomfort. A diode laser is more gentle than regular surgery. For example, comparing LANAP Laser Treatment with conventional gingival flap surgery. It’s safe to use around implants to remove excessive gum tissue surrounding orthodontic wires and pacemakers. Laser dentistry has many advantages for both patients and practitioners.

What to expect during laser dentistry

Undergoing surgery of any kind can be frightening. That’s why it’s important to know what to anticipate. Here’s what you can expect from laser dentistry once your appointment is booked:

  • Simple procedure: Laser dentistry in SW Calgary is a noninvasive surgery that is fast and virtually painless
  • No drills necessary: With the laser doing all the work, no drills or scalpels are needed for laser dentistry, making it a safe oral treatment for various procedures.
  • Painless treatment: With many concerns revolving around the pain of dental surgery, you can rest easy knowing laser dentistry is nearly pain-free. You won’t feel vibrations or discomfort from the laser
  • Bleeding may occur: Laser dentistry combines heat and light to treat dental issues. This combination makes bleeding a possibility during surgery

What to expect after laser dentistry

Once laser surgery is complete, it’s essential to understand the post-surgery symptoms:

  • Soreness: Allow your mouth and gums sufficient time to recover post-surgery. Eat a soft diet (eggs, yogurt, pasta, etc.)
  • Minor swelling: The treated area will become slightly inflamed post-treatment. Expect the swelling to subside after ten days from the date of surgery
  • Discoloured gum tissue: Your gums will be irritated and discoloured post-surgery. Give them sufficient time to heal (usually a week) and return to their regular condition
