At 4 Squares Dentistry, we use lasers instead of scalpels to treat teeth and gum problems. Our expert dentist in Gowrivakkam can treat patients without cutting, suturing, or blood loss with laser dentistry. It does away with the need for traditional drills and local anaesthesia. Our experienced dentists in Medavakkam, use two types of laser dentistry procedures – hard tissue and soft tissue.
These are procedures done on the teeth such as cavity detection using lasers to find decay. Tooth preparations, filling and treating sensitivity are common hard tissue procedures. A laser is used to kill bacteria and promote long-term health, and the sensitivity is treated by sealing tubules.
Soft tissue procedure is done to the gums. These are often used to treat a gummy smile. A laser is utilised to reshape the gum covering most of the tooth. Crown lengthening, and removing tissue folds are other common soft tissue procedures.
Laser dentistry also treats thick or tight tongue frenulum – the skin that attaches the tongue to the mouth floor. The procedure, known as laser frenectomy, is used for children with speech impediments.
4 Squares Dentistry offers a whole breadth of treatments using lasers:
Lasers are energy in the form of lights in varying wavelengths. For each surface of the teeth like gums, enamel or tissue, a different wavelength is used for treatment. The surface absorbs the lasers for effective treatment. At 4 Squares Dentistry, our dentists are skilled and experienced to handle each laser frequency with adeptness.
All laser dentistry treatments are painless; that is why they don’t require anaesthesia. Some patients may feel minor discomfort during the procedure. It dissipates fairly quickly.
Compared to traditional dental procedures, the time taken for laser dentistry is 40 to 50% less. That said, the exact time of the procedure is dependent on two factors - the severity of the condition and the nature of the treatment. The doctor will give you an estimate of how long it will take after completing your evaluation.
Laser dental treatments are competitively priced. The expense is often the same as conventional treatments or just slightly more. How much a laser dentistry procedure will cost depends upon the number of teeth to be treated, the condition’s severity and total sittings required. We advise you to consult our doctors at 4 Squares Dentistry to get a fairer idea of our treatment prices!
