When you visit Total Health Dental in Aurora, Illinois, you can expect compassionate and top-quality care from Dr. Khaja Mohsinuddin and his skilled team. In addition to excellent dental care, you can also expect the use of cutting-edge dental technologies like the Denmat Sol laser device. Dr. Mohsinuddin recommends using this technology for laser dental surgery due to the many benefits it offers patients.
This relatively new treatment can treat numerous conditions, including gum disease, deep periodontal pockets, inflammation, etc. The Denmat SOL device uses a laser that removes diseased and damaged gum tissue while stimulating the use of new, healthy gum tissue. This laser treatment is recommended for use on the soft tissues in your mouth. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from laser gum surgery.
When you elect to undergo laser surgery, you choose a form of gum surgery that is far less invasive than traditional gum surgery, which utilizes traditional medical equipment slicing into your gum tissue. This results in uncomfortable surgical wounds that require both stitches and time for healing and recovery. Because the lasers used in laser gum surgery do not actually cut the gum tissue, you face a decreased risk of post-surgical sensitivity and infection after your surgery. Laser gum surgery also involves a decreased risk of complications. Because laser gum surgery has been proven to be more gentle than traditional gum surgery, dental patients face less fear or anxiety about undergoing the procedure.
If you find that your gums are bleeding when you brush, you likely have developed gingivitis. This very early stage of gum disease is easily reversed with better oral hygiene and dental care, but if allowed to progress, you could find yourself in the advanced stages of gum disease. Gum disease can lead to severe dental complications when left untreated, including tooth loss. If you face advanced gum disease but are afraid of some of the traditional forms of gum treatment or surgery, laser gum treatment is a wonderful alternative. The use of lasers for gum treatment can eliminate the bacteria growing inside the deep pockets of your gums that a regular dental cleaning could not eradicate.
People with straight white teeth and perfectly contoured gums have tremendous confidence in their smiles. Unfortunately, many people do not have this, and it plays a role in their self-esteem. If you have ever felt that your teeth look short or that your smile is too gummy, you may hide your smile. When you think that the proportion of gum tissue to teeth is out of balance, you should look into how laser gum surgery can contour your gums by removing excess tissue. You could have that beautiful smile you have always dreamed of with a simple treatment.
When you meet your dentist for laser gum surgery, you will undergo an incredibly precise and accurate procedure. Unlike traditional gum surgery, no healthy gum tissue is damaged during laser treatment. The specialists at Total Health Dental will use the Denmat SOL device to not only treat your damaged gum tissue but also stimulate the growth of new and healthy tissue. The methods used by Dr. Mohsinuddin are of an exceptionally precise and accurate nature. The laser itself can distinguish between healthy and unhealthy gum tissue. It will also not affect tooth or bone matter.
When you go in for traditional gum surgery, you can expect weeks of recovery. This recovery can be quite uncomfortable, including swelling and severe diet restrictions. When you go in for laser gum surgery, 24 hours of recovery will be all you need and during that time, you will feel only mild discomfort. Because laser gum surgery requires no cutting and no stitches, recovery is quick and minimal downtime will be required. No traditional surgical instruments such as scalpels will be needed. Less tissue will need to be removed, resulting in less discomfort, minimal bleeding, and minor inflammation.
