Laser Treatment

Laser Treatment In Plantation, Fl

For general dental practices, laser technology is a viable choice. Lasers are employed in a wide variety of medical specialties, including dentistry. They are highly focused laser beams that can be utilized to change or remove minuscule quantities of tissue. Laser is used by our dentist for a variety of procedures within the mouth. This treatment can also be used to remodel the gums, whiten teeth, and remove excessive tissues.



Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, is an infection of the tissues and bones that support the teeth. Gum disorders affect adults in their 30s and 40s for a variety of reasons, including poor dental health, hereditary susceptibility, chronic conditions including diabetes, smoking, and certain drugs.

Scaling and root planing is a common periodontal disease treatment (SRP). Cleaning the surfaces of teeth and their roots, which may be exposed owing to gum recession, is a noninvasive procedure.

Tissue preservation, regeneration, and bone-building are all benefits of laser treatment. The dentist uses a laser to enter an infected pocket in general dentistry to eliminate the affected tissue and microorganisms. Instead of scraping with hand instruments, the calculus is removed with an ultrasonic root cleaner once the diseased tissue has been removed and the root has been exposed. Finally, laser radiation is used to warm the stem cell in the pocket that contains blood, resulting in a tissue seal against the tooth root.

No tissue is intentionally removed or gum tissue is decreased to a lower level during laser treatment. It also encourages stem cells to generate new connective tissues, bone, and collagen in the tissues. The body’s healing process subsequently replaces the ligaments and bones that have been lost surrounding the tooth.

Advantages Of Laser Technology In Gum Treatment

Gingivitis sufferers may experience significant gum bleeding and bone loss. As a result, removing bacteria from the teeth and gingival spaces is crucial. Lasers have the advantage of not only eliminating but also killing microorganisms. This aids in the reduction of gum bleeding and swelling. It may potentially eliminate the need for additional gum disease therapy like gum surgery.

The wavelengths and power levels of the laser beam can be modified based on the severity of the periodontal disease. This provides dentists complete control over the procedure and enables them to provide dental treatment that is specifically tailored to each patient’s long-term needs.

Laser treatment is gentle on the gums, teeth, and surrounding tissues. As a result, compared to typical surgery, the recovery period is considerably decreased. Patients will heal more quickly, and the entire process will speed up.

Lasers are less intrusive and do not require drilling. This minimizes the amount of pressure that patients experience, implying that an anesthetic isn’t required. As a result, patients have reduced pain and discomfort. Patients will feel less worried and relaxed during therapy if they experience less discomfort.

Since laser treatments are so precise, they may be used to keep the good parts of the teeth intact while eradicating cavities. Preserving any good teeth in individuals with severe bacterial infections would help to assure better long-term outcomes.

Lasers help to sterilize the area you work in and reduce the risk of bacterial infections because they don’t require any equipment for an operation. Laser therapy can help patients achieve better clinical outcomes in less time, while also lowering discomfort and the need for more intrusive treatments. This treatment can be used in conjunction with regular operations or as a stand-alone procedure. This decision can be made based on the kind and severity of the periodontal disease.

What a wonderful group of professionals! The office is fully equipped with advance technology. The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, very kind and friendly. It made me felt comfortable and at ease. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Karen is super kind and caring, explaining during the the cleaning process - super gentle and pain free. . Dr. Rizvi is really friendly. She took her time to exam, review and explaining in detail when going through 3D with me and just in time a treatment list in detail along with what insurance covers/not cover. They orchestrate the procedure really well - making the visit an extra outstanding and special. Excellent team of doctor and staff. I just recommended my family member for their upcoming visit.

Wonderful group of professionals! The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, and friendly. I felt more comfortable than I ever have at a dentist’s office. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Lisandra and Karen made me feel at ease as they examined and cleaned my teeth. They did such a thorough and amazing job cleaning my teeth and taking care of my gums during each visit. I’m 9 months pregnant and the doctor and staff did an outstanding job making each cleaning and procedure as pain and stress free as possible. They were extremely knowledgeable on what they could or couldn’t do as well. The office manager Roxie made sure to explain in detail what our insurance covered (after finding out my husbands insurance didn’t cover the first cleaning, she still graciously waived the fee). Roxie was very informative when explaining the breakdown of costs of each visit, and other options that we could consider when coordinating our treatments to meet our financial and medical needs. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had a cleaning this morning with Giselle. She is a great, and I think our Spanglish works well to communicate with each other. Haha. I had a wonderful experience, and I also thought, my kid will like their cleaning here because of My Dentist for Life’s new tool. Great technology, no pain and quick!
