Laser Dentistry Encino, CA


Common applications of laser dentistry in Encino

Laser technology has developed greatly in recent years. Today, there are various applications of laser technology in medical and dental treatment. In fact, laser treatment is more effective and faster as compared to other dental treatments. For a long time, laser technology has been approved by the Food and Beverage Administration body making it very safe for medical use.

At Philip Farzad, DDS dental clinic, we usually apply laser dentistry in place of other lengthy dental procedures. In laser dentistry, our dentist will first apply some anesthesia to reduce any pain or discomfort during treatment.

He will then go on to project the laser light on your teeth to remove bacteria or perform other dental treatments on the gum and teeth.

Visit us today at Philip Farzad, DDS dental clinic and get the best laser dentistry in the city. Here are some of the most ordinary treatments we offer with laser dentistry.

Treating tumors

Oral tumors can cause plenty of pain and discomfort and most times, they are best treated by being removed completely. Late treatment of oral tumors and cysts can cause spreading of the condition to other parts of the body. In cases of oral tumors, we usually assign our oral surgeons since they have better training for such dental issues.

Using laser dentistry, the dentist can remove the tumor by focusing the laser light on it for some time. Depending on the range of the tumor, the dentist will range the power of the laser light to avoid hurting your gums and oral tissues.

Regardless of the place where the tumor has grown, laser technology can be used to permanently eliminate the tumor.

Treating gummy smiles

A massive number of people in the country have a gummy smile. A gummy smile occurs when a lot of gum is exposed as you smile. This condition is usually caused by irregular tooth growth, poor jaw formation or having shorter teeth than usual. A gummy smile can interfere with your appearance making you look unattractive.

Laser dentistry is able to used to treat a gummy smile by reducing the amount of gum at the base of the tooth. The cosmetic dentist will range the power of the laser light to level out any excess gum and provide an equal and even gum distribution.

Treating tooth sensitivity

Laser dentistry can be used in treating tooth sensitivity by covering the nerve endings that usually cause pain. These nerve endings are found inside the root of the tooth but still cause pain when the tooth enamel is touched with a very cold or hot substance.

The laser light seals these nerves and makes them stop detecting temperature on the tooth.

Lengthening tooth crown

A longer tooth crown can make you look younger and more attractive. Laser technology is usually used to lengthen the crown of the tooth by reducing the gum at the base of the tooth.

After removing the necessary amount of gum tissue, the dentist will then shape the gum evenly to mimic a natural look and effect.
