Lasers deliver light energy in a narrow and focused beam. When the laser is used for dental procedures, the light energy reacts with the infected tissue to either remove or reshape it. Lasers work differently depending on the procedure they are used for. In some dental procedures, lasers are used as a source of heat, and in some other procedures, they are used to speed up the process. Laser dentistry provides a comfortable and flexible treatment for several dental problems. Laser dental treatments are cost-effective, efficient, and pain-free compared to traditional dental treatment options.
The Ezlase diode is an advanced laser technology that has made dental procedures more comfortable for patients and easier for dentists to perform. It delivers accurate, high-power light energy with longer intervals to ease the tissue thermal relaxation. The Ezlase diode laser is easy-to-use, portable, and provides precise results compared to other laser systems.
Ezlase diode lasers are used to treat various conditions, including gum surgery, pain-relieving, dental cleaning, to speed the spreading and healing cycle for herpetic lesions and crown lengthening. This technology offers faster results than traditional laser dentistry.
At Smile Arizona Dentistry, we have experienced and highly-skilled dentists to perform dental procedures using Ezlase diode lasers. We help you achieve the results you desire with our safe and comfortable laser dental practices. We use high-quality and effective lasers that make the procedures go smoothly and reduce your discomfort and healing time.
We can treat the following dental conditions with Ezlase laser dental procedure:
Gum recession is a condition that exposes the tooth's root, making it easier for plaque and bacteria to accumulate. However, laser technology can fix this condition by minimizing inflammation and eliminating infected tissue. The laser light also improves bone and tissue healing and promotes collagen formation. Sometimes a frenum (“same” as a tongue-tied problem but located now most typically on the front of the upper or lower anterior most teeth) can be easily released by the laser to then aid in keeping the gum tissue from exposing more root surface. This same frenum releasing can aid in keeping teeth straight after correcting a diasthema (a naturally occurring space most often between the upper two front teeth. Sometimes this is considered esthetic or pleasing to the eye and sometime a patient wants this space improved or closed.)
The benefits of Ezlase laser dentistry include:
Laser dentistry is typically pain-free, as it uses an intense beam of light energy to perform dental procedures.
Although there is a small risk of side effects in laser dentistry, our team uses the right wavelength or power level to reduce the chances of any side effects.
Generally, it takes two to three weeks to recover from laser gum therapy. When you recover, you should avoid consuming hard, crunchy, or sticky foods, as they may get stuck between the gums and teeth and cause irritations to the healing gums, which will increase your recovery time.
Laser treatment on occasion can be slightly more than traditional dental treatment. However, the benefits outweigh its cost.
This depends on what dental procedures your insurance plan covers. Usually lasers are a covered benefit for general insurance codes. Insurance does not dictate how you get a result, only on checking the box that the result was ultimately obtained. Our team will work with you to ensure that you get the full benefit of your dental insurance coverage.
