Laser Therapy: Modern Solution for Cold Sores, Canker Sores, and Gum (Gingival) Surgery
Modern dentistry has benefitted from many different technological advances in other fields. One of the most important scientific discoveries was the use of lasers in dentistry. At Pinnacle Dental, our Odyssey laser can be used for many different applications such as treating cold sores and canker sores to decrease healing time and limit their potential for recurrence. In addition to ulcer treatments, the laser can be used in soft tissue surgeries for biopsies, removing gum tissue around teeth for crown lengthening or to alter gum positions in smile enhancements.

How our Laser Therapy in Calgary will help the Patients?
Laser Dentistry is versatile and plays a crucial role in bringing back the teeth’ health. There are numerous ways in which laser therapy is used, which are as follows:
The use of laser therapy helps eliminate the bacterial infection which a patient may acquire during the treatment. It helps bring successful outcomes by eliminating the disease-causing bacteria.
Another important use of lasers is removing the tumor from the teeth’ soft tissue areas. Laser therapy helps eliminate the tumor without causing harm to the nearby tissues. Moreover, it doesn’t cause pain in the tissues too.
Soft Tissue Reshaping
Laser dentistry in Calgary is also helpful in reshaping the soft tissue exposed more than the natural crown lengthening. It gives proper shape to the tissues to restrengthen the smiles and make them more impressive and attractive. Above this, it will help remove those dead tissue folds that may happen due to denture wear.
Laser can also be helpful in the teeth whitening process. It increases the particles’ activity, such as peroxide bleaching solution, which helps in the whitening of the teeth.
Sometimes the laser dentistry is also helpful to perform the biopsy on the soft tissues and suspicious areas of the mouth. The laser procedure helps detect the fault instantly with excellent precision.
How Pinnacle Dental Will Perform the Procedure?
