Lasers have been in use in medicine and dentistry for many years. The FDA has approved the use of lasers for many dental procedures including those discussed on our website. A laser is a device that uses light energy to perform work. Lasers are unique because they can treat targeted tissue while leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. It is this property among others that allow the Calleros Dental team to perform very precise procedures. In addition lasers may seal off blood vessels and nerve endings during a procedure lessening bleeding, postoperative pain and swelling. Owning a laser demonstrates that Calleros Dental has made a financial and educational investment toward providing the very best care possible. Only a small percentage of dental offices have made this financial and personal investment for the well being and comfort of their patients.
Lasers are also used to facilitate healing other oral soft tissue trauma, such as:
- Irritation from orthodontic wires
- Denture sores
- Extraction sites
- Periodontal therapy
- And many other applications
