Bay Shore, NY (PRWEB) April 05, 2016
Dr. Harold Guerrero is pleased to offer his patients the latest in advanced laser dentistry with the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ laser. As a leading dentist in Bay Shore, NY, Dr. Guerrero has adopted this technology to provide safer, more effective treatment options that require less time in the chair and shorter recovery periods. The combination of a highly calibrated beam of light and a focused water stream can target decay with precision, leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Many procedures are so gentle, patients do not require anesthetic.
The goal of many dental treatments is removal. A dentist in Bay Shore, NY scrapes plaque and tartar from tooth roots, cleans bacteria from below the gum line, and drills decayed matter out of teeth. With all the exposure to sharp instruments, some soreness is to be expected. Below the surface, the damage can be more serious. For example, dental drills create friction that can send tiny fractures through a tooth. While these may not be immediately apparent, the integrity of the structure could become compromised. During more complex procedures, such as severe periodontitis treatment, the gums may have to be cut and pulled away from the roots of teeth so that the calculus can be removed and the infection treated. As a result, the gums have incisions that must heal along with the wounds created by the disease.
Laser dentistry is able to treat the same health issues, but the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ laser includes tools that access infection and decay without creating new injuries. These tips are designed to be used once, eliminating the potential for the cross contamination that sometimes occurs as a result of improperly cleaned tools. The laser cleans and cauterizes wounds, which means less bleeding and less chance of infection. It also stimulates new tissue growth, which decreases the amount of time associated with the healing process even more.
