Using Laser Dentistry to Aid in Optimal Oral Health
Dental laser technology has been in use by dental professionals for many years and has proven to be an effective and non-invasive treatment option for many oral health concerns. At Boileau Dental Care, we ensure that our patients have access to quality care and up-to-date technology, and that includes access to laser dentistry.
What is Laser Dentistry?
There are many ways laser technology can be used in dentistry. At Boileau Dental Care, we use a diode laser, which is also known as a soft-tissue laser. It is ideal for procedures that involve recontouring oral soft tissues or speeding the healing of oral infections, whether bacterial or viral, this includes cold sores.
How Does it Work?
Laser energy is attracted to colour wave lengths, and the diode laser is attracted to red, so gingival tissue is where it works best. The laser can concentrate its energy at the tip of the applicator, allowing it to cut or it can allow the energy to penetrate the tissue promoting healing on a cellular level. The energy penetrates without any discomfort.
Laser Technology Helps in Fighting Cold Sores
Lasers are an effective and pain-free way of getting rid of those pesky cold sores more quickly. And cold sores will often reoccur less frequently and with less intensity. It is most effective when used as soon as a lesion appears.
You can rely on the team at Boileau Dental Care to provide you with solutions to your oral soft tissue needs. Call our office to discuss how our diode laser can help you get rid of cold sores and improve your overall oral health, giving you something to smile about.
