Laser Dentistry in Lafayette, LA
Dentistry has expanded by leaps and bounds in the last few years. New technology is constantly becoming available that makes dental care more efficient, more effective, and more comfortable than ever before.
At our office, we want our patients to have a comfortable experience every time, and therefore we’ve taken the time to explore the new offerings that dental technology has provided to determine which techniques and procedures are right for our patients.
We’ve found that laser-assisted dental procedures are an excellent way to treat a variety of issues comfortably and conservatively. The dental laser allows us to target the problem with pinpoint accuracy and preserve a greater amount of healthy tissue.
Dental Laser Treatments
At our Acadiana dental office, we use lasers to treat soft tissue problems like fibromas and lesions. Lasers quickly and effectively destroy bacteria for efficient and comfortable sterilization while leaving the healthy tissue intact.
Soft Tissue Procedures – Growths, fibers, lesions, and infections, while not common, are not rare either. Dental lasers allow us to treat these problems without the need for surgery. The laser quickly and comfortably removes fibrous or infected tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. Also, the risks of discomfort and bleeding are significantly lessened, and you are likely to experience a much shorter and more comfortable healing time.
Is Laser Dentistry Right for You?
At your appointment with either of our Acadiana dentists Drs. Smith and Domingue, you will receive a thorough examination and consultation about your dental and periodontal health. We’ll discuss all your concerns and provide our recommendations for your treatment and ongoing care.
If we feel that you will benefit from a laser dentistry procedure, we will discuss this with you and explain thoroughly why we recommend the procedure and what we expect the results to be. Ultimately, the final decision always rests in your hands.
