Lasers in Orthodontics Elmhurst
Soft Tissue Lasers
There are many clinical applications nowadays for dental lasers in dentistry and in particular in orthodontics. Since 2006, Dr Radu was certified and extensively used in her everyday practice a diode Biolase soft tissue laser for uncovering impacted teeth or shaping and sculpting uneven gums, or for labial or lingual frenectomies (on patients that are tongue “tied”). These are some of the few routine procedures that are easlily accomplished in our practice with MINIMAL local anesthesia and discomfort, with very predictible results, no bleeding or stitches, and reduced stress for both the patients, parents and staff.
When compared to traditional treatment instrumentation, the laser technique provides superior hemostasis (stops the bleeding on contact), reduces pathogens/bacteria, decreases post-operative sequelae and ensures better patient comfort. Gone are the days of the stitches and post-up stitch removal appointments….
And you get to look cool with the fancy special pink goggles we use while “LAZERING” your gums….
