Patients with periodontal disease can now receive laser dentistry in Durango, CO from Dr. Mason Miner. Dr. Miner recently attended a laser symposium in Vail, Co, that covered important topics such as utilizing laser technology for root canals, gum hyperpigmentation and other procedures. Laser technology has been shown to be faster, less painful and more accurate than traditional procedures involving stitches and incisions.
Dr. Mason Miner had the privilege to recently attend a highly educational laser symposium held in Vail, CO. Patients who are searching for a dentist who practices laser dentistry in Durango, CO for the treatment of periodontal disease and other common dental conditions can now receive laser-based treatment from Dr. Miner. During the laser symposium, Dr. Miner learned how to utilize laser treatment during root canals. Laser root disinfectant techniques are able to remove a much higher number of bacteria than other available methods and is the most effective way to sterilize the root during root canal procedures.
The symposium also revealed practical information about addressing and treating dark or discolored gums, which is a potentially embarrassing condition that can occur due to a number of factors, including genetics. Laser technology is capable of removing hyperpigmentation of the gums in a very efficient and quick manner, without causing significant trauma to the surrounding tissue.
Laser dentistry is also commonly utilized to facilitate healing and aid in pain relief for patients who suffer from oral ulcers or cold sores. In addition to reduced pain levels, patients who receive laser treatments are more likely to experience shorter recovery times than they would be subjected to through traditional treatment methods. Dr. Miner also offers laser therapy for patients who suffer from oral mucositis as a side effect of chemotherapy or radiation in the head area. Some patients may be able to prevent the development of mucositis by receiving laser therapy prior to chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
Along with the laser symposium, Dr. Miner also attended a lecture on Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder, presented by the Director of the Myofunctional Therapy Associates. Myofunctional disorders include conditions related to tongue thrust, swallowing, lip-ties, tongue ties, speech issues and infant feeding problems, among many others. Dentists help these patients by providing referrals to myofunctional therapists, surgical intervention and addressing occlusion issues.
Dr. Miner invites all patients with periodontal disease to consider receiving laser dentistry in Durango, CO. A consultation may be set up by calling Dr. Miner’s office and speaking with a friendly office representative.
