Pain-Free, Minimally-Invasive Treatment
Lasers are much more precise than traditional dental tools like scalpels and drills. This means treatments done with lasers are faster, too. This reduces the time you spend in the waiting room and in the dentist’s chair at Tuttle Family Dentistry.
Laser tools often allow patients to be treated without any anesthesia at all. This is because lasers cause minimal bleeding and discomfort. The hot laser immediately cauterizes (seals) nerves and blood vessels upon contact, so you won’t feel a thing during your surgical procedure. The risk of infection is also much lower, and no stitches are needed after your treatment.
Soft tissue lasers use a fiber-optic tip that contains a powerful laser light. This light heats up the tip to a very high temperature. The tip of the laser is so hot that it essentially “vaporizes” soft tissue like gum tissue upon contact.
Soft tissue lasers are often used for periodontal care to perform deep cleanings and procedures like gum flap surgery and gum grafting, but they can also be used to perform cosmetic treatments like gum reshaping (gingivoplasty).
Our Solea® All-Tissue Laser is powerful and versatile, and can be used for almost any dental treatment. It operates effectively both on hard tissue like enamel and on soft tissue like the gums, cheeks, and other oral tissues.
This laser is particularly useful for removing enamel and hard tooth tissue, which normally would require a dental drill. With our Solea® All-Tissue Laser, there are no uncomfortable vibrations, and you also don’t have to hear the high-pitched whirring sound of a dental drill, which may cause anxiety in some patients.
With our advanced laser therapy options, it’s easier than ever to get the care you need in Colorado Springs without fear, anxiety, or discomfort. Contact us now to get started.
Laser cold sore treatments use a special hand-held laser that beams powerful light into your cold sore, killing the virus that causes the cold sore upon contact. Over time, the sore will fade and shrink, and become less painful and noticeable.
In addition, every time you get a laser cold sore treatment, the likelihood of the cold sore recurring in the same area will be reduced. Over time, repeated laser cold sore treatments will dramatically reduce your risk of developing new cold sores.
