Scalpel-Free Procedures for Improved Results
Lasers have been a staple in dentistry for decades. Dr. Nargiz Schmidt has been providing “no-scalpel” treatments since 2005. She found that patients appreciate the benefits of minimally invasive dentistry. Laser dentistry offers an attractive alternative to traditional gum surgery, especially for those suffering from dental anxiety because none of the traditional dental drills or scalpels is used. Dr. Schmidt offers sedation dentistry but with laser treatments, it is seldom needed. State-of-the-art lasers can eliminate bacteria and gum tissue without the need for incisions or stitches. This preserves more of your healthy tissue and also reduces swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. Post-procedure recovery times are faster as well.
Lasers allow Dr. Schmidt to provide minimally invasive dentistry. She incorporates several lasers into her practice, including BIOLASE WaterLase® iPlus™ 2.0, BIOLASE EPIC™ 10 Diode, and NV laser. How do lasers maintain the health and appearance of your gums? Dr. Schmidt uses lasers for laser gum surgery for periodontal disease, laser gum lifts for enhance gum contours, and laser assisted gum graft to improve gum recession. Your gums are the frame for your teeth, and they also serve as a barrier to protect your teeth from decay and bacteria. Healthy gums are an important part of a beautiful, healthy smile.
