Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Some of the major benefits associated with laser dentistry include

  • No Sutures: Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches).
  • Less Time: Using laser dentistry allows procedure to be done faster, which means less time in the dental chair
  • No Anesthesia: Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia.
  • Less Bleeding: Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
  • Elimination of Infection: Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on.
  • No Damage: Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized.
  • No sound, No friction: unlike drills, lasers do not make sound and do not touch your tooth while preparing it.
  • Enhanced Healing: Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.

Laser Melanin Removal

Gum discoloration can occur for several reasons. Commonly, people with darker complexions may be prone to a natural buildup of melanin in their gum tissue. These dark spots can cause an undesirable appearance to otherwise beautiful, pink gums.

Conventional treatments include the use of burs or scalpels to remove pigmentation of gum tissue which leads post operative discomfort, pain and needs a long healing time

The Laser procedure:

Think of healthy gum tissue and most envision the Hollywood standard of perfection perfect, pearly white teeth and matching brilliant, pink gums. Unfortunately, some individuals-even with healthy gum tissue-can't achieve this look due to extra pigmentation in their gums, which causes the area to look dark, brown or splotchy. That is, until now!

Using Waterlase technology, Dr. Habib Zarifeh can accurately remove these areas of dark pigmentation. The laser technique de-pigments the gums in one office visit. The treatment is virtually painless, and patients may only need the aid of topical anesthetic with very quick healing time.
