Why Waterlase YSGG Laser Therapy? See Video Demo Below!
Doctors have used lasers for many years to provide better care for their patients. LASIK vision correction and laser procedures in dermatology are widely accepted forms of treatment. Advanced laser technology can now be used for your periodontal, cosmetic, implant and surgical care.
The Diamond Schlesinger Group is the first periodontal specialty practice in Manhattan to offer this state-of-the-art technology.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect to experience with the Waterlase YSGG laser:
The YSGG uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill, and without using a scalpel to make incisions.
The YSGG removes diseased tissue much more precisely than conventional methods. Greater precision in removing diseased tissues preserves more of the healthy tissues in your mouth. Minimally invasive treatment leads to quicker and better healing.
Less Bleeding and Swelling
Due to its conservative, gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the YSGG performs many procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-operative swelling.
What Can the Waterlase YSGG Laser Do?
We use the Waterlase YSGG laser to treat gums, bone or any other soft tissue in the mouth. Our laser can do the following:
Improve a Patient’s Smile
A “gummy smile” or teeth that appear irregular in size or shape are treated with the Waterlase YSGG Laser by safely removing excess gum tissue.. The laser precisely and painlessly sculpts the gums to improve the appearance of the smile.
Fix a “Tongue Tie” or Prevent Gum Recession
Connections that restrict the movement of a patient’s tongue or cause their gums to recede can be released with the Waterlase YSGG Laser laser. “Tongue tie” correction with a laser can be performed on any age child.
Treat Periodontal Disease
The Waterlase YSGG Laser can be used to remove debris and bacteria between a patient’s teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth. Studies show that the Waterlase YSGG Laser laser reduces bacteria and may even stimulate gum tissue growth.
As dental specialists, we use the laser in combination with advanced tissue engineering to predictably re-grow the tissue lost during the disease process. The long-term prognosis of the affected teeth is thus improved.
Relieve the Pain of Canker Sores and Fever Blisters
The Waterlase YSGG Laser provides immediate relief from painful canker sores and fever blisters.
Advanced Surgical Therapy
The Waterlase YSGG Laser can assist in many advanced surgical procedures including:
- Dental implant surgery including advanced bone grafting and augmentation
- Cosmetic surgery including soft tissue grafts
- Advanced periodontal surgery involving regeneration and biomodification
- Oral surgery and extractions
- Reverse vestibuloplasty to modify the lip position and enhance the smile
- Surgical gum treatment related to orthodontics and pediatric dentistry
- Minimally invasive treatment of pregnancy gingivitis and periodontal disease during pregnancy
These procedures performed with the laser are minimally invasive and therefore preferable to conventional surgery.
