DEKA CO2 Soft-Tissue Dental Laser

We'd been looking for years for a way to improve upon some of the more archaic methods in which dentistry was performed.

Apex Family & Cosmetic Dentistry has outfitted each of its five Utah dental offices with DEKA CO2 soft-tissue dental lasers, the latest in soft-tissue dental laser technology. This state-of-the-art technology is designed to improve upon a variety of dental procedures commonly performed for Utah patients. Apex Dental is one of only 5% of Utah dentists who currently take advantage of this technology to enhance the dental care experience for its patients.

Dr. John Kwant, D.M.D., head of clinic for Apex Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, explained some of the tangible benefits that the dental laser brings directly to each patient. “We’d been looking for years for a way to improve upon some of the more archaic methods in which dentistry was performed. We wanted a way not only to improve clinical dental care aspects, such as greater precision and quicker healing time, but to enhance overall patient comfort by removing some of the more unpleasant elements of dentistry, such as pain, bleeding, and sutures.”

Soft-tissue dental laser technology greatly enhances a number of common dental care procedures, such as periodontal therapy, tooth extractions, implants, and much more. The dental laser provides a more sterile operational environment, reducing the risk of infection, providing a clearer view of the procedure area, and greatly reducing healing time. When used during scaling and root plane procedures to promote gum strengthening in patients with periodontal disease, the dental laser helps decrease the chance of future gum recession relapse, often eliminating the need for future treatment.

The soft-tissue dental laser can also be used during a number of cosmetic and preventative dental procedures performed by the dentists at Apex Dental. Gumline reshaping, often referred to as Smile Design, is a method of removing excess gum tissue to reveal a larger amount of tooth surface area, resulting in a more attractive, natural-looking smile.

Doctors and hygienists who use soft-tissue dental lasers speak highly of the increased levels of precision and patient comfort it provides. But most importantly, Utah patients who have experienced both older, traditional methods of dental treatment, as well as treatment with the dental laser have nothing but positive things to say about this remarkable new technology. “The process felt much less invasive than I remember it being,” Courtney, a 24 year-old Utah patient said after receiving a periodontal deep cleaning with a DEKA CO2 laser, “my gums didn’t feel sore afterwards and the procedure also seemed to fly by.” Courtney, along with thousands of other Utah patients, have already experienced tangible results from laser-assisted dental treatment at the hands of the doctors and hygienists at Apex Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
