Lasers have altered medical surgery by proving minimally-invasive replacements to old-fashioned sutured closures and scalpel incisions. The laser’s penetrating, narrow wavelength has predictable, precise, and powerful responses when it contacts soft or hard tissues of the body. Laser light is very efficient, creating very little heat as it performs on its target. This makes it ideal for oral surgery, because it seldom touches tissues other than those it aims at. The laser offers precise control over the extent or depth of cutting, while simultaneously minimalizing bleeding and disinfecting the treatment area.

These vibrations, which happen at a rate quicker than the speed of sound, efficiently blast away calculus, plaque, and stains from the surface of the teeth.  A small stream of water appears near the tip of the scaler to level away debris from the area being preserved. It is also possible to take out deposits of tartar and plaque from under the gum line by utilizing alternate methods.  Sometimes an ultrasonic scaler is first used, and then any dogged areas are scaled by hand.

After a detailed cleaning at our office, your teeth will look brighter and feel fresh. Teeth cleaning is not just about appearances. It is the primary means of averting and treating periodontal (gum) infection.
