What is Laser Dentistry?
We use two types of Laser technology for improved outcomes and faster healing times.
Soft Tissue Laser
We use a Diode Laser which is capable of creating precision cuts to the gum and other soft tissues, whilst eliminating bleeding at the site and reducing the healing time for the patient.
Low Level Laser Therapy or LLLT
Dr Stock uses this low intensity light that penetrates deeply into the tissue, without heating or hurting the skin, which activates the body’s natural healing mechanism to self heal and overcome pain.
In our clinic we use laser for:
- Difficult gum problems to reduce the need for gum flap surgery
- Treatment of gum disease
- Fractured tooth repair ( crown lengthening procedures)
- Gummy smile surgery
- Improved root canal cleaning and disinfection results.
- Faster healing times with the use of LLLT
It is a very useful tool to make dentistry easier for both patient and dentist. It takes fewer & easier visits to get the job done!
