What Laser Services
Do We Offer?
Laser technology is used in many aspects of dentistry, but
particularly in treating gum disease. Because dental lasers are so minimally invasive,
the treatment boasts reduced risks, increased comfort, better results and faster
recovery time than traditional treatment for gum disease.
As technology improves and changes the lives of every
American, Dr. Ahn is proud to offer the Biolase WaterLase iPlus laser to his
patients to treat symptoms such as bleeding gums, sensitive teeth, inflammation, bad breath
and missing teeth that are often caused by gum disease. The benefit of this
procedure is that the diseased tissue can be treated without much harm to the
remaining healthy tissue. The process also promotes the regeneration process
and tissue healing.
Why Is Laser
Our elderly patients not only deal with anxiety during
certain procedures, they also face poor oral health conditions, bone loss and
weakened gum tissue. Laser dentistry can be used to make treatment much easier and
less invasive for patients that are already more vulnerable to pain, infection and
Laser procedures do not require stitches or incisions and
most are done without anesthesia. Because the laser aids in clotting the blood
vessels, there is decreased risk of excessive blood loss and minimal risk of
bacterial infections because the laser helps to sterilize the area. Wounds heal
much faster and the damage to surrounding tissue is minimal.
