Advanced Biolase Laser Dentistry for Southland Smiles

Lasers are effective tools for a wide range of dental applications. Biolase laser dentistry uses the benefits of laser technology to help patients have more comfortable dental treatments. At Southland Smiles, we offer Biolase laser in Aurora, CO, to eliminate the need for needles, drills, and scalpels during dental operations.

What is a Biolase Laser?

A Biolase laser is a dental device that employs low-level laser radiation combined with atomized water to swiftly, safely, and gently perform a variety of minimally invasive dental and periodontal operations. Biolase laser treatments are done with less bleeding, and frequently without needing a local anesthetic needle.

Advantages of a Biolase Laser

Biolase has many benefits that you can’t achieve with dental hand tools used in traditional dentistry.

  1. There is less pain during and after a biolase laser surgery. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort following the treatment, and little to no anesthetic is needed. When discomfort arises, it goes away fast.
  2. Decreased bleeding and swelling following the operation.
  3. Because lasers kill bacteria, it helps preserve of bone and gum health.
  4. Biolase promotes faster recovery. Clinical research on patients with oral ulcers has demonstrated that compared to hand tool treatments, operations utilizing this kind of laser heal more quickly and cause less discomfort.

The Dangers of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a bacterial infection that commonly affects adults. Bacterial infections can cause bone and gum damage, even if you are unaware of it. Gum disease is also the primary cause of tooth loss in adults and is associated with diabetes, dementia, and heart disease. 

The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. Some of its symptoms include foul breath, swollen or bleeding gums, and sensitive teeth. When gingivitis worsens you can have loose teeth, gum tissue that pulls away from the teeth, and changes in your bite.

Gum disease prevention is essential for both your dental and general health. You can achieve this with a treatment using a Biolase laser in Aurora, CO, which we offer at Southland Smiles. During routine cleanings, our dentist can remove mechanical irritants like food particles, plaque, and tartar using a Biolase laser. Biolase can lessen or eradicate gingivitis and other forms of gum diseases.
