Laser Use In Dentistry
Lasers have been used in dentistry for a number of years, to treat a number of different dental problems. With advances in treatment, Bonita Dental Care patients now have access to gentler, quicker treatments, with much shorter recovery times. In some cases, laser technology can even replace the traditional dental drill.
Soft Tissue Treatment
At Bonita Dental Care our dentists use lasers to treat tongue-ties, and can also remove excessive soft tissues along the gum lines, such as fibromas. Unlike a scalpel, a laser modifies the surface of the gum tissues and gently seals off the blood vessels and nerve endings.
Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP, is the first and only FDA approved protocol to treat periodontitis. This non-invasive therapy is intended to work through regeneration, rather than resection. LANAP can prevent the need for a conventional flap with a periodontist. This procedure is performed in conjunction with deep cleaning, to destroy the bacteria that causes infections. You can expect your treatments to be split into two different appointments, with one half of the mouth being treated at the first visit, and the other half treated at your follow up visit. We are pleased to offer our Bonita Dental Care patients this incision free, suture free treatment option.
