Laser Dentistry Treatments in Ottawa
We incorporate new technology at our clinic, not for the purpose of impressing our patients but to offer them a better quality of care. The dental laser is one piece of technology that does exactly that. It has been available for several years now, but its use has been steadily expanding to include more and more dental procedures such as teeth whitening, tooth preparation, soft tissue surgery and others.
Its most conventional use remains, however, the treatment of periodontal disease. The soft tissue laser has been designed to remove or reshape the inflamed gum tissue with precision and accuracy that minimizes any potential collateral damage to the surrounding areas. The surgical procedure is focused and localized, with less bleeding, fewer stitches and lower risk of infection. This tends to make most periodontal treatment interventions less invasive, safer, more comfortable and faster healing.
