Huntsville, AL (PRWEB) May 13, 2015
Patients with a wide variety of dental problems now have the option of receiving laser dentistry procedures from Dr. William Ingram. Dr. Ingram is proud to be a dentist in Huntsville, AL, who incorporates effective laser technology into his treatment methods for gum disease and filling placement.
Laser dentistry is quickly becoming a preferred treatment option for many dental patients, due to its effectiveness, speed and minimally-invasive nature. Dr. Ingram is a family dentist in Huntsville, AL, who now offers WaterLase iPlus™, Biolase Diode and VELscope® lasers for the treatment of gum disease and to place microscopic fillings. The WaterLase iPlus system is completely revolutionizing the way certain dental procedures are performed and can minimize pain during many dental procedures without the use of local anesthetics. Additionally, the WaterLase iPlus™ system is so exact that it is often used for the placement of microscopic fillings.
VELscope® is very effective at detecting the early stages of oral cancer, which is responsible for approximately 7,000 deaths each year in the United States alone. Early detection is essential for prompt treatment, but oral cancer can be very difficult to detect. The VELscope® system makes it easier to detect cancer by using natural tissue fluorescence to help dental professionals locate potentially cancerous cells in the mouth. This minimally-invasive early detection system may increase a patient’s chance of survival by revealing cancerous cells that could easily be overlooked during routine visual diagnostic methods.
Biolase Diode lasers are very versatile and can be used for a wide variety of dental needs from soft tissue surgery to teeth whitening. Patients with gum disease who do not want to receive standard treatment options, that involve slicing and stitching, are urged to learn more about the Biolase Diode lasers. Not only are these gentle lasers extremely accurate and effective, but they are also commonly used for pain therapy purposes and are designed to minimize treatment discomfort.
In addition to laser dentistry procedures, Dr. Ingram also utilizes advanced technologies and offers various dental options such as dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics.
