Ann Arbor, Michigan (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Dr. Shannon Norman-Kotre, Ann Arbor dentist, and her staff of dental professionals have recently completed training and certification in laser dentistry in an effort to provide the best and most modern care to dental patients in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and the surrounding metro areas.
Soft tissue laser therapy is fast becoming a popular and effective choice for treating many common dental problems quickly, and with less pain and downtime than is often required when using alternative treatment methods.
Laser dentistry has many uses, including the treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and infection; tooth decay and carries; and lesion and cankersore removal.
Other benefits of dental laser therapy can include a reduced need for anesthesia, as laser therapy is generally more comfortable than traditional treatments; reduced patient anxiety for those who fear dental pain; minimization of bleeding and swelling both during and after treatment; and the potential to preserve more healthy teeth during the removal of cavities and decay.
"We are thrilled to be able to offer the option of laser dentistry to our patient family," said Norman-Kotre. "Oral health doesn't just affect teeth; it's affects patients' overall health as well."
Many studies have shown a strong correlation between gum disease and coronary artery disease, diabetes, stroke, and even obesity.
"A technology that allows my patients to have a more comfortable in-office experience will help ensure they receive regular professional preventative care, and therefore, are more likely to maintain good general health at the same time."
