State-of-the-Art Laser Dentistry
At our practice, we strive to give our patients a positive and painless experience for their treatments. To help achieve that goal, we utilize state-of-the-art laser dentistry for some common procedures. Dr. Howard Abrahams has an NV® Microlaser to help with soft tissue concerns that afford quick and near-painless dental visits.
Laser Frenectomy Treatment
Through laser surgery, we can perform virtually painless frenectomy treatment. Those who are tongue- or lip-tied generally have a frenum that is too tight or short. This causes complications or pain when not treated. The traditional frenectomy method involves cutting the frenum with a scalpel and placing sutures. By using our laser, Dr. Abrahams can remove the frenum without the need for either scalpel or stitches and with virtually no pain.
Problems a Tight Frenum May Cause
- Oral discomfort
- Gaps formed between front teeth
- An open bite
- Speech problems
- Difficulty eating
- Unstable dentures
Eliminate Canker Sores
Dr. Abrahams also uses our dental laser for aphthous ulcer treatment, otherwise known as canker sore treatment. Canker sores are painful and unsightly ulcers that can affect areas of the mouth. Using the NV Microlaser, Dr. Abrahams can destroy the infection and stop it from progressing. Typically, patients feel relief from pain almost instantly and have a drastically reduced healing time.
