In this video, Dr. Harrison talks about the use of the dental laser in our office. Our hygienists and Doctors Harrison and Bethke use a soft tissue laser in treatment options, such as; Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR), canker sores, cold sores, other mouth sores and fever blisters, as well as to assist in the placement of crowns and veneers.
LBR is necessary when periodontal disease has progressed to a stage where bacteria gets trapped in between the gums and teeth and forms a pocket. The bacteria causes inflammation and can cause loss of bone and gum tissue, causing other serious problems. LBR can stop the spread of infection and protect from further damage from the periodontal disease.
Laser dentistry is comfortable and in most cases only needs a topical anesthetic; in some cases none. We love the technology in our office because of how much better it makes dentistry for our patients, as well as how much more effective we can be because of it. Our goal is to ensure patients get the treatment they need as comfortably as possible. We have a wonderful, friendly team of knowledgeable and skilled people working for us. We invite you to give us a call at 281-492-6064. Come see us! We know you’ll be happy you did.
