Limelight Dental uses laser dentistry to provide you with the most comfortable, precise and less invasive treatment. Periodontal disease is one of the most common conditions treated using laser dentistry in our offices.
Laser dentistry is a 100% safe treatment for the whole family. In fact, this state-of-the-art, innovative method is particularly great for children, as it improves comfort during treatment and during recovery. Laser dentistry is often used to treat infants and children with tongue ties. At Limelight Dental, we use laser dentistry to remove excess soft tissue.
Laser can be used to detect tooth decay during the earliest stages, which allows the Limelight Dental team to provide minimally invasive, proactive treatment options that might help prevent cavities from forming in the first place.
Soft tissues treatments - Lasers offer many advantages for treatment of soft tissue problems. It is a minimally invasive procedure, compared to conventional methods that strip away more tissue. Lasers can be used to destroy harmful bacteria in the pockets below the gum line. Laser dentistry tends to result in reduced pain and bleeding, compared to conventional treatment, especially when treating sores or ulcers on the gums and lips.
Hard tissue treatments - In recent years, the use of lasers has been increasing in hard-tissue procedures, such as cavities and dental caries. Laser dentistry is more accurate, especially when it comes to the gums or lips. With laser dentistry, we can provide gentle dental care to patients of all ages who are afraid of needles and the dental drill. The laser vaporizes the structure of the decayed tooth. The damaged area is then filled with composite resin to restore your oral health.
Disease detection - Lasers can aid in the diagnosis of oral diseases by illuminating fissures and tiny pits in the teeth that cannot be found using traditional dental tools. It allows your dentist to monitor small defects. Additionally, laser dentistry is used to locate tartar (dental calculus) beneath the surface of your gums. Furthermore, laser is used to aid in the detection of early stages of oral cancer by accurately distinguishing healthy tissue from diseased tissue.
