Laser Dentistry in Cortlandt Manor, NY
One of the most important things we can do as patient advocates is to stay in the know about advancements in the field of dental technology. Dr. Taxin uses laser dentistry for a variety of procedures for its pinpoint accuracy, ability to promote healing, and the level of comfort it provides to our patients. In fact, laser dentistry has made some procedures so comfortable, some patients who visit our Cortlandt Manor dental practice don’t even require anesthesia.
Laser Treatment for Gum Disease
Because our practice focuses on oral systemic care and making sure our patients achieve overall wellness, we often use laser dentistry to treat gum disease. Up until just a few years ago, there were very few options available for patients with advanced stages of gum disease. Aggressive methods were needed to attack this tricky disease, such as cut and sew gum surgery and scaling and root planing. However, aggressive didn’t always equal effective.
Laser gum therapy has changed that model and created a conservative method of treatment. The laser works with pinpoint accuracy, allowing Dr. Taxin to treat only the affected tissue and leave healthy areas alone. In addition, the laser sterilizes as it zaps bacteria around the gumline, as well as promotes growth of new, healthy gum tissue that bonds with the tooth.
