Sault Ste Marie dentists at Northern Dental Care use lasers to assist with many soft tissue applications. Either an 810nm or 980nm diode laser is used for most soft tissue applications. Dental laser use has proven to be a comfortable and predictable way to treat various oral ailments.
By using a dental laser we are able to assist with healing in gingivitis and periodontitis. As well, cold sores (herpes simplex),canker sores and denture sores can be treated during your appointment so you can leave pain-free and assist with the healing process. It has been shown through studies that when cold sores are treated 2-3 times with the laser, they will not return again to the same site.
Besides oral disease, dental lasers can be used in the mouth for many other dental applications such as:
treatment of gingivits and periodontitis/periodontal disease
assists in healing of split lips (from dryness)
canker and cold sores
oral lesions/pain due to radiation or chemotherapy
tongue tie/frenum attachment(s)/frenectomy
