Laser Dentistry is a fresh, modern approach to dental care. Salt Lake City Laser Dentists, like Dr. Bishop, use lasers in most of our procedures so that we can correct damage without causing irritation. Laser technology allows us to more accurately target specific areas of your mouth. The laser is incredibly thin so we can make precise incisions when necessary.
With traditional metal dental tools, even an expert Salt Lake City Dentist may irritate the surrounding tissue with an accidental slip of the hand. The difference is that the surrounding gum tissue is not impacted or irritated in any way. By removing this risk, you can undergo the same dental procedures but with a recovery time that is faster. By removing this risk, our patients can undergo the same dental procedures in a non-invasive way with a faster recovery time. Lasers can also be used to help stop the bleeding so that when a more intensive procedure is being performed, gauze may be unnecessary.
Gum disease is common and many adults will suffer from one form or another in their lifetime. Treating gum disease is critical for preserving your teeth as you age. The symptoms typically start with red, swollen, and bleeding gums but if left untreated, it can lead to gum recession. With Laser Dentistry, it is a gentle way to break up the plaque associated with causing the gum disease. The traditional method, often uncomfortable, involves pulling the gums away from the tooth and using metal dental tools to scrape off the plaque and tartar that has formed on the tooth but underneath the gums. Laser Dentistry is non-invasive procedure that allows you to start feel better right away.
If you are tired of having yellow or stained teeth, you are not alone. We can perform an in-office laser whitening treatment with dramatic results. Opposed to whitening tray that may take a week or two, in a single appointment, your teeth can become eight shades whiter or more. While the results are stunning, the procedure is still entirely safe, making it an excellent solution for improving your appearance.
Dental anxiety is a common condition that you do not have to suffer from. Laser dentistry has made it possible for many procedures to be completed in a comfortable manner. With the use of our laser you no longer need to hear the sound of the drill or feel the vibrations. You no longer need to have concerns regarding dental care after experiencing how pleasant a laser dental treatment can be.
