Nothing To Fear From Laser Dentistry

Learning to accept treatment is one thing. Actually going through with it is another.

Just getting to that point where you are actively seeking to relieve the pain of a toothache or even enhance your smile with a cosmetic procedure is commendable. It can often seem like a Herculean task just to face the flaws with your smile, much less do something about it.

Your fear of knives, scalpels, and anything with a shiny bladed edge can make it difficult to pull the trigger on accepting any kind of treatment, medical or dental.

If you have an unsightly gum line – teeth that appear too long or too short; irregular “framing” of your teeth at the gum line – then this fear can go off the charts. Just imagining that metal instrument probing and cutting up the soft tissues in your mouth is too much to bear, and is more than enough to keep the idea of a healthier, more attractive smile at bay for years.

The problem with this should be obvious: By letting your fear of the tools of the medical trade get between you and proper oral health, you are basically allowing your smile to fall apart. When that happens, then there will be no choice but to get treatment, except that it will be incredibly expensive and painful by that point.

Although you are embarrassed about your smile right think, stop and take a moment to think about how much more embarrassed you will be if your unruly gums lead to a case of periodontitis – or worse, losing one or more teeth altogether?

You can avoid this terrible scenario altogether and get the cosmetic dentistry procedure you need, and all without the use of traditional metal instruments, by opting to undergo a laser gum reshaping treatment.

None of the Pain, All of the Results

My practice is highly skilled in the art and technology of laser-aided dentistry. We use them for a variety of purposes, from detecting cavities to providing needle-free anesthetics. They represent the most advanced dentistry techniques available today, and not just any Millburn dentist is properly trained to use them.

When it comes to the problems affecting your gum line, I can use this laser technology to create a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing smile by altering your gums.

I’ll spare you all of the boring technical details, but what I do want to emphasize is the painlessness of the procedure. By tuning the laser to the correct frequency, I can remove excess gum tissue which can promote the unchecked growth of bacteria, or reshape recessive gums to provide more coverage to the underlying tooth.

Whatever needs your smile has, I can successfully treat them without putting you under the proverbial (and literal) knife.

If you have children who are also fearful of receiving treatment, then the benefits of laser dentistry can put them at greater ease. What’s more, but children are generally more accepting of technology than their parents, and may even be intrigued or excited to learn more about the process.

Yet the benefits don’t end when the procedure is over. One of the most remarkable aspects of a laser gum-reshaping treatment is that the recovery times are vastly improved when compared to the more traditional methods that my competitors use. Unlike those dreadful scalpels, lasers don’t cut any tissues, and their precision eliminates accidental cutting which can occur with bladed instruments.

As a result, the gums can heal much, much more quickly, which means less time dealing with the sensitivity and less chance of a postoperative complications from arising.

So there is no reason to be afraid anymore if you are seriously considering remaking your smile into something to be proud of, because when you are a patient with Millburn Dental Arts, you are in gentle hands.

All you have to do is take your desire for a more beautiful smile to the next level, and call me to accept a revolutionary treatment. It will enhance your confidence, and make maintaining your new smile a breeze.
