Dental Technology

A Technologically-Advanced Practice

At Coulon Dental, providing our patients with quality dental care means investing in the latest and most advanced dental technology. Our practice utilizes soft-tissue laser dentistry in particular to eliminate much of the stress and pain from certain dental procedures.

Soft Tissue Lasers

Soft-tissue dental lasers are an efficient and often painless alternative to other dental instruments like scalpels or drills. Sometimes, the painful effects of oral surgery have little to do with the teeth themselves. The pain a patient feels may be due to inflammation or irritation of the surrounding gum tissue.

Soft-tissue lasers can perform a variety of procedures like periodontal pocket cleanings with little to no damage to the gums, increasing post-operation comfort and significantly accelerating healing time.

Many cosmetic procedures have been innovated by laser dentistry, including: crown lengthening, frenectomies, and the removal of excess tissue.

More Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is almost entirely pain-free, depending on the circumstances and procedure. General or local anesthesia is seldom required during laser procedures, and the presence of a laser can even help decrease the amount of pain a patient may otherwise experience.

A cut made from a laser is much less traumatic to the soft tissue than that made by a blade, so the patient’s body is less likely to react with swelling or discomfort. Lasers also suture all wounds they open, again expediting the healing process.
