Laser dentistry is an important part of the care offered at Dr. HagShenas’ Campbell and South Bay-area practice. Lasers reduce or eliminate the need of anesthesia and make many procedures more efficient and comfortable for patients.
The areas of dental care that can benefit from laser dentistry include:
Dr. HagShenas utilizes the following lasers for his procedures:
This hard tissue laser delivers light energy to the desired area which mobilizes small particles of water, resulting in a safe and conservative removal of tooth structure. Laser dentistry is used to remove enamel, decay, and gum tissue, with a shorter healing time than is experienced with traditional dental drills. Unlike traditional drills, there is no heat or vibration with Waterlase®, which makes procedures more comfortable for patients. There is also less risk of cracking of a tooth or removing healthy tooth along with the decay.
Dr. HagShenas uses this soft-tissue diode laser to reshape or remove gum tissue with immediate results and an extremely fast healing time. Gum tissue can be reshaped safely and comfortably with Lasersmile™ to create a harmonious gum line in relation to the patient’s smile. Teeth that appear to be too short, creating a gummy smile, can be cosmetically lengthened by reducing the amount of undesired gum tissue.
The use of this laser in the reshaping of gum tissue eliminates the need for suturing, leading to much quicker recovery for patients, in general.
