Compassionate Care

Let us brighten your child’s dental future! Our doctors and staff provide age-appropriate, attentive care. Parents often comment on the connections created between their children and our doctors and these bonds are strengthened as children are treated with honor and respect at each visit. Additionally, we have ultra-clean offices, low radiation digital imaging with child-sized equipment, and BPA-free sealants and white fillings. We offer state of the art services, including laser dentistry.

 

WHAT IS A LIGHTSCALPEL CO2 LASER?

The LightScalpel CO2 laser is a device that produces a concentrated beam of light. The highly focused CO2 laser beam vaporizes, cleanly and precisely, while sealing blood vessels at the same time. Years of experience in medicine and oral surgery went into the design of the LightScalpel laser, which was made to provide superior care for patients.

 

WHAT IS LASER SURGERY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Traditional surgery with a scalpel or scissors can bruise or crush tissue. When we use the LightScalpel CO2 laser, only an intense beam of laser light interacts with the tissue. There is no mechanical trauma to the tissue, and the coagulation zone is very narrow (as little as 50 microns – almost the width of a human hair).

The CO2 laser has the unique ability to vaporize or ‘erase’ tissue. The CO2 laser can be used to make incisions, as well as to remove unhealthy tissue. Our laser is so precise that it can selectively remove only a few cells at a time if needed. At the same time, it is powerful enough to de-bulk the largest of tumors.

 

ARE LIGHTSCALPEL LASER PROCEDURES SAFE?

When used according to accepted guidelines by a trained practitioner, the laser is as safe as other instruments. You will wear special protective glasses, just as you would to protect your eyes from sun exposure.

 

IS LASER SURGERY APPROPRIATE FOR ME?

A laser can perform a wide variety of soft tissue surgical procedures. Currently, we are using the laser to revise lip and tongue ties as well as remove excess gingival tissue. We also use it to treat canker sores and uncover unerupted teeth. Your doctor will be able to tell you if you are a candidate for laser surgery.
