Laser dentistry is moving at light speed (pun intended) to become one of the most popular dental processes. Lasers offer superior results with less pain or irritation and reduced bleeding compared to traditional equipment. Bay Center Dental, committed always to providing our patients with the best and newest in dental technology, now offer the Biolase WaterLase™ system for your comfort and safety.
Lasers Improve Oral Hygiene
Everybody knows that doctors pledge to “do no harm”, well, surgery is harm, but it’s harm with intent to cure. A good surgeon does absolutely no unnecessary damage. Lasers are precision instruments, more precise than a scalpel. They are minimally-invasive dental care — they decrease damage to surrounding tissues and preserve more of your natural smile while speeding your healing process.
For some patients, laser dentistry makes extra good sense. Pregnant women, for example, experience hormonal changes which can make gums more sensitive, causing some pregnant women to forego checkups. Laser dentistry is completely safe during pregnancy, because we use no tools that harm you or your baby. A mother’s health is usually reflected in her baby’s health, and we want every child to be born as healthy as possible.
Scared of the Dentist? Do Not Fear the Light!
Dental anxiety is common, for many reasons. At Bay Dental Center, we understand, we all have our fears. Dentistry via laser eliminates many of those reasons – the heat, pressure and vibration generated by traditional drills can cause pain; eliminate these and many patients don’t even need anesthesia. Likewise, as careful as we are, a steel tool can slip and scratch or cut your gums. Lasers don’t slip, even on the slickest, roundest tooth surfaces.
A Whole New Surgery Ballgame
Everybody should be afraid of gum disease. Red, swollen, bleeding gums, if left untreated, can cause receding gums. When more of the tooth and roots are exposed, they are and open to bacterial attack, possibly leading to tooth and bone loss. Repairing this level of damage is hard in too many ways to name.
Treatment used to mean pulling the gums away from the tooth and scraping bacteria, plaque and tartar off with metal tools. (Ouch!) Laser periodontal care treats gum disease by using lasers to break up plaque and tartar without irritation and speeding your return to healthy gums. It’s non-invasive – you’ll probably start feeling better within hours.Whether you’re a new patient or an old friend, if you live near Lawndale, California, Bay Dental Center is the right place for all your family’s tooth-care need.
