We are proud to announce that Fair Lakes Family and Cosmetic Dentistry now provides CO2 laser treatment! The LightScalpel CO2 laser is cutting edge in both concept and application, and can be used in place of frenectomies, which would otherwise require a more invasive procedure. We are excited to begin using our CO2 laser for treatment!
Using laser technology for treatment is all about results. As you might expect, there are a number of benefits that come with this type of treatment. Some benefits are:
- Reduced chair time
- Faster recovery and healing time
- Little to no post-procedural discomfort
- Minimized risk of infection
- Less bleeding and swelling
The LightScalpel CO2 laser is safe to use near bridges, crowns, fillings, and other pre-existing dental work. Treatment with the CO2 laser helps minimize tissue damage, which in turn reduces the chances of infection following the procedure.
We will be using the LightScalpel for frenectomies–otherwise known as tongue-tie. Correcting tongue-tie in this manner will be faster and more comfortable for the patient. We are looking forward to helping you and those you love fix the issues that have been with you since birth.
Another use is for treating aphthous ulcers, also known as canker sores. As with frenectomies, use of the CO2 laser provides faster recovery time and can also bring immediate pain relief after only a few seconds of use on the sore.
At Fair Lakes Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, it is our goal and responsibility to provide you the best treatment and experience whenever you visit our office. We are pleased to have this system in our office, and through it are able to provide you with even better oral health care. As we continually work with the latest technology, your dental procedures will become more efficient, less painful, and something you may even start looking forward to.
If you are looking for minimally invasive treatment for a frenectomy, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us online. We’re confident you’ll enjoy the perks the LightScalpel CO2 laser therapy brings! We look forward to seeing you!
