Our dentist near Itasca makes it a priority to keep up with evolving technology that will benefit our patients, which is why we invested in the Picasso Plus Laser Light from AMD Lasers. The dental field continues to utilize laser technology, as there are many benefits from which both patients can benefit.
In general, laser dentistry utilizes a narrow, focused light beam to produce a reaction when it hits your tissues. It can be used in many different scenarios, including:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Teeth whitening
In our office, we utilize the Picasso laser for a variety of different treatments, such as:
- Treating smiles that are too “gummy”
- Crown lengthening
- Treating muscle attachment
- Removing soft tissue folds or extra tissue around dental implants
- Helping to visualize tooth contours for dental crowns (caps)
Why Use A Laser?
We utilize laser dentistry treatments because they work efficiently, they are cost-effective, and they are one of the more comfortable treatment options for our patients. Rest assured that Dr. Homann and his team are well-versed in utilizing laser technology and what it takes to keep patients safe.
