Cold Sore, Fever Blister or Canker Sore Reduction
In just 10 minutes or less, you could feel relief from painful mouth sores. Some cold sores, fever blisters and canker sores can last quite some time without treatment. These sores can be very painful. With laser treatment, you can expect fast healing – within just 24 hours! In addition, with this treatment new sores are also prevented! This same treatment can be used on bite trauma and burns on the tongue and cheek from hot drinks or food. Many times, medical insurance will cover cold sore treatment.
A frenectomy can become necessary when a person is tongue-tied and the frenum is attached too closely to the end of the tongue. This can happen under the center of the upper lip as well. A frenectomy is normally recommended to be performed if it is keeping the mouth from developing properly. This laser treatment causes little to no pain and is a quick procedure that can make a world of difference.
Laser Gum Contouring
Overgrown gums can wreak havoc in a person’s mouth. Side effects can be irritation, decay, and inflammation. Most of the time this is due to food that is trapped beneath the gums. Laser gum contouring works to remove the excess of gum and reshape the gum lines. This can help the look, functionality and overall health of your smile. This treatment is painless and fast. Healing will begin right away and the recovery time is minimal.
Laser Bacterial Reduction
Bacteria that are present in your mouth can affect your whole body by entering the bloodstream. At a regular check-up, we offer laser bacterial reduction to mainly treat gingivitis. This treatment is used as prevention for gum disease such as periodontitis. Preventative care can protect your health and your smile.
Laser Decay Removal
DIAGNOdent detection is an advanced device that allows us to find tooth decay at a very early stage. This process can detect decay before x-rays or an examination can. We offer this service during regular check-ups at no extra cost! This extra step can save you money and treatment down the road. At Impressions Dentistry, we strive to make your smile healthy for a lifetime and want to take every measure to ensure the best possible care for your teeth.
