Why Ezlase Laser Treatment?
We offer ezlase laser treatment at Vander Schaaf/Beischel Dental Care to improve your comfort and provide better results from your dental procedures. There are advantages over conventional treatment using scalpels and sutures. Please see the graph (below the following highlights) comparing the ezlase laser and conventional therapy.
Highlights of the ezlase laser services:
- Improve Your Smile!
We can contour or shape your gums to improve the appearance of your smile by removing excess gum tissues that may give you a “gummy” smile or make your front teeth appear irregular or small in size or shape.
- Remove Oral Growths!
We can remove growths or excess tissue in your mouth such as gum tissue over an unerrupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, fibromas, and others.
- Fix a “tongue tie” or Prevent Gum Recession!
Connections (frenums) that restrict the movement of your tongue or cause your gums to recede can be “released” with the laser.
- Treat or Prevent Periodontal Disease!
Our dentist/dental hygienist team may recommend using the laser to remove debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth. The laser is highly effective at killing bacteria and may even stimulate gum tissue growth.
- Relieve the Pain of Cold Sores and Fever Blisters!
The laser often provides immediate relief from painful cold sores and fever blisters.
How Does It Work?
The ezlase is one of the most advanced dental instruments made today. It was developed by Biolase Technology, the number one company in dental lasers, with over 20 years of experience. Biolase dental lasers have been used to treat millions of patients.
The ezlase laser creates special highly concentrated light energy and sends it through an optical fiber to its handpiece. We use the handpiece to aim the laser energy at precisely the areas to be treated.
The laser energy used by the ezlase was developed specifically to treat gum and other soft tissues in the mouth safely and comfortable. It can be harmful to eyes, however, so you, the operator and anyone in the treatment room will wear protective glasses.
