At Perfect Smiles California, we use laser dentistry procedures to give our patients a more comfortable dental treatment experience. Dr. Garate offers laser dentistry to deliver precise treatments that are more comfortable and take a shorter amount of time.
The benefits of receiving laser dentistry treatment include:
- Anesthesia is not required for many laser dentistry treatments
- Recovery time post-treatment is generally much quicker than with traditional dental treatment
- Laser dentistry treatments are often more comfortable for patients
- The risk of bacterial infection is lowered due to the precision of laser dentistry treatments
For patients who need surgery for severe gum disease that cannot be cured with antibiotics or other treatment methods, Dr. Garate can perform a gingivectomy using laser dentistry.
A gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum tissue to get rid of pockets between the teeth and gums. After a gingivectomy, it will often be easier for patients to keep their teeth and gums clean.
Cold Sore Treatment
For patients suffering from cold sores or canker sores, Dr. Garate often recommends laser dentistry treatment. This type of laser treatment works by heating the sore lesion in order to kill the virus and stimulate your body’s healing. The treatment procedure lasts about 15 minutes, and most patients feel better immediately following their appointment.
Dr. Falcon enjoys transforming our patients' smiles through our many orthodontic options, including several options for braces.
