Did you know that recent advancements in laser dentistry have made many dental treatments less invasive? Our Ottawa, ON dentist office, The Villanova Dental Studio, uses laser therapy for state-of-the-art dental procedures for both hard and soft tissue procedures. Dr. Ami Barakat and his associates are highly trained and experienced in using laser therapy for the benefit and quality care of her patients. We offer Waterlase and EzLase to help patients receive better dental care.
Laser dentistry can be used for a wide range of cosmetic and restorative treatments such as gum disease, tooth decay, and gum contouring. Laser dentistry offers quality results with shorter downtimes and minimal discomfort. Laser dentistry also promotes natural healing and reduces the risk of infection. Many patients can benefit from laser dentistry. Your dentist will help you to develop a dental treatment plan that is right for you.
For Patients With Gum Disease
Gum disease is a common health concern and a leading cause of tooth loss. Untreated, gum disease can also lead to an increased risk of systemic health concerns such as heart disease, heart attack, Alzheimer’s and strokes.
Using laser dentistry, your Villanova dentist can remove the gum disease causing bacteria from the pockets in your gums. Treating gum disease with laser dentistry reduces swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. For many patients treating gum disease with laser dentistry may eliminate the need for invasive gum surgery.
For Patients with Receding Gum Lines
If you have a gummy smile, or if your gum line is receding due to advanced gum disease, it may detract from the aesthetics of your smile and deter your oral health. Receding gum lines can also lead to tooth damage or loss if left untreated. Laser dentistry can effectively treat your gum line without the need for traditional gum surgery. Laser dentistry eliminates the need for sutures and greatly reduces downtime compared to gum surgery. Dr. Barakat is highly trained in using laser dentistry to contour the gum line for a more aesthetic smile.
For Patients With Fear of The Dentist
Many patients avoid visiting the dentist due to dental anxiety. If you find the dentist a stressful experience, or if your dental anxiety is triggered by the sound or thought of the drill, laser dentistry may be able to ease your anxiety.
Laser dentistry has made many traditionally painful procedures much less painful. The lasers are quiet, minimally invasive and eliminate the need for sutures. Many patients who suffer from dental anxiety may find laser dentistry to cause less anxiety. Without the sounds of drills, laser dentistry allows for a relaxing and efficient treatment. For patients suffering from advanced dental anxiety or experience an extreme gag reflex, we also offer conscious sedation dentistry.
