Laser Dentistry in Grand Rapids

Laser Dentistry in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, East Grand Rapids, MI

IMG_1323In the past, individuals would often associate a dental appointment with having a drill used on their teeth. For those who are made uncomfortable by this once common dentistry tool, there is some hope. We are happy to offer them laser dentistry, which uses new technology to provide dental care which is more accurate, efficient and comfortable for the patient. Our Precise Diode laser technology can be used for cosmetic sculpting of the gums for a more beautiful smile.

How does laser dentistry in East Grand Rapids work?

When Dr. Zwier uses the Precise Diode laser, the procedure will be fundamentally different from using a normal drill. It combines a laser beam with atomized water, giving it the ability to remove tissue while having no impact on teeth around it. Another great benefit of using this laser technology is that it sterilizes the treated area during use, bringing down the risks of oral infections.

In East Grand Rapids, laser dentistry is extremely precise. It is so precise that a dentist may need to use a small microscope or magnifying glass to see the area being treated. This precision allows the Precise Diode laser to target only areas which need treatment, without affecting other teeth.

How does the patient benefit from laser dentistry?

The main benefit from using this laser technology is a very comfortable experience for the patient. Few people appreciate having to get shots inside the mouth or leaving the dentist’s office with a sore mouth. In East Grand Rapids, patients of laser dentistry can be treated without any anesthesia. This also speeds up the procedure. Exposed blood vessels will clot better, which reduces bleeding and swelling after the procedure. The need for oral pain medication to manage pain is reduced as well as the healing time of the treated area following the procedure.

The Precise Diode laser is extremely versatile. It may be used to treat various soft and hard tissues in the same procedure. The majority of patients who have seen Dr. Zwier in East Grand Rapids, Michigan and experienced laser dentistry for the first time would recommend it to others without hesitation.

How does the Precise Diode laser work?

The Precise Diode laser affects soft-tissue at the cellular level. The laser energy vaporizes and modifies soft tissue with great precision, little to no bleeding or swelling, and significantly less postsurgical pain often without injected anesthetics.

What are the advantages of having the Precise Diode laser?

Today’s bonding techniques require total control over the operative site. The Precise Diode laser ensures the ability to achieve that. No other instrument available to the dentist has had the capability of such precise tissue sculpting. The Diode laser is the least traumatic of all competing and conventional instruments.

  • Less post-operative pain
