We now have a state-of-the-art soft tissue laser that allows us to perform many procedures that can be painless, reduce healing time, and prevent bleeding in a myriad of procedures.
Some of the treatments we now use it for include:
releasing frenums in patients that are for instance tongue-tied
recontouring gum tissue for more esthetic smiles
providing disinfection in periodontal (gum and bone) therapies
treating canker sores
removing excess gum tissue
removal of infected tissue
We are excited to share this technology with you!
Many of you may have heard of Invisalign from friends & family or in the media. The Invisalign treatment entails custom made esthetic, clear, comfortable, removable aligners to straighten teeth.
Straighter teeth include both esthetic and functional benefits. You can look forward to a more beautiful smile, healthier teeth and gums, preventing cavities, easier cleaning, and better overall health.
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position — without unsightly brackets and wires.
If you are interested in finding out if you would be a good candidate for Invisalign, please call Rebecca our front office coordinator today to schedule a free consultation.
