Laser Therapy

The latest technology in laser dentistry requires fewer shots and less anesthesia.

At Lakeview Dental Centre, we use soft tissue diode laser. 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 tiny fibre to help remove 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 make sure that you feel absolutely nothing during the treatment.

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. 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 that little or no postoperative discomfort occurs. A diode laser is more gentle than regular surgery. It’s safe to be used around implants to remove excessive gum tissue around orthodontic wires, and for patients who have a pacemaker. Laser dentistry has many advantages for both the patient and practitioner.
