Laser Dentistry – An Alternative To Standard Care
Dr. Maralani is proud to offer laser technology available for a variety of soft tissue surgeries. There are numerous advantages to using laser surgery as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety of common surgical procedures is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
Reduced Risk of Infection
The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
Dr. Maralani can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as biopsy of soft tissue lesions, excess gum tissue removal (gingivectomy) and canker sore pain reduction.
