Laser Dentistry in Hatfield
Latest technology for the treatment of gum disease
At Distinctly Dental we are very proud to have the specialist Waterlaser which has many uses and is extremely effective in treating gum disease. Only a small number of general and specialist dental practices in the UK have this amazing technology available to their patients, so we are delighted to be able to offer this.
When treating periodontal [gum] disease with the use of the laser, we can actually achieve ligament healing and new bone growth (which is not possible with conventional gum treatments). This means that together with my hygienist we are able to provide some of the best gum therapy available.
Research has shown that patients with chronic gum disease have an increased risk of:
- Heart Attack
- Respiratory disease
- Premature birth
I also use the laser for implant surgery; removing lumps and bumps; assisting in extractions; healing of cold sores, ulcers, and to improve the success rate of several other procedures.
