Treatment with Laser Dentistry
Dr. Naguib’s mission is to provide patients with comfortable and comprehensive dental care. Depending on the tissue type that is being operated on, Dr. Naguib may use different equipment. Lasers also cause less bleeding than other traditional surgery tools like scalpels, so the surgery site may not bleed as much. Laser dentistry is a great option for patients who may have dental anxiety because it does not use drills and sutures. This type of dentistry is designed with patient’s comfort in mind.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Soft tissue refers to gum tissues or other soft tissues in the mouth. Gum recontouring, also known as crown lengthening, is a procedure that can be used to treat a “gummy” smile. Frenectomies, or tongue-ties which can impede speech, can also be treated in our office. Soft tissue lasers can also treat gum disease, gum inflammation, cold sores, and benign tumors.
Hard Tissue Laser Dentistry
Hard tissue refers to tooth structure in the mouth. Hard tissue laser dentistry addresses cavities and tooth decay, treats tooth sensitivity, and is used in other restorative procedures. Dental lasers that treat hard tissue use heat and water to treat these problems.
