Lasers have been used in dental procedures since 1990. For many patients, laser treatments are safe, effective and virtually pain-free, as in many cases do not need to have anesthesia allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience without seeing a needle coming at you.
Lasers can reduce healing time, decrease bacteria in diseased gums and control bleeding during dental surgery. The American Dental Association (ADA) allows the use of lasers in a variety of procedures, including:
- Teeth whitening
- Cavity removal
- Gum treatments
- Root canal infection treatments
- Snoring reduction/elimination procedure
- Intraoral collagen stimulation procedures.
The use of lasers for dental procedures requires special training. Dr. Flores and his hygienists have been certified by the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ADL) and have received specialized training by the laser manufacturer.
Rancho Dental Studio performs laser bone regeneration procedures to grow bone around teeth that will have an eventual hopeless prognosis and restore a healthy bone foundation around these teeth.
Laser treatments are covered by insurance companies for approved procedures at the same rate as traditional treatments. Dr. Flores will work with you to determine the best combination of laser and traditional treatments for your dental needs and budget.
