Gary speaks about his experience at Lexington Park Dentistry
"No Issues At All My pain was managed very well. It was a very positive experience for me. I mention pain because I’ve gone through quite a bit of dental work prior to coming here, and there was quite a bit of pain through those procedures. When I came to this facility I really had none. I had no issues at all. Recovery time was very quick."

Benefits of a Laser Frenectomies  

Our team of highly-trained specialists have a passion for helping our patients, including children, through minimally-invasive techniques. We have seen how a child’s life can be improved with the simple procedure of a laser frenectomy. Benefits of frenectomies, for young and old, include:

  • Eliminates lip and tongue ties that can prevent an infant from breastfeeding

  • Corrects speech issues

  • Less oral discomfort

  • Cosmetic benefits that eliminate gaps in your teeth

  • Improves the function of your bite

  • Improves the fit and function of dentures

If you have gum recession, an uneven gum line or a gummy smile, we can turn to a dental laser to reshape the gums for cosmetic improvement. The treatment typically takes about an hour and can be performed under local anesthesia. We can trim away excess tissue and reshape the gums to create a more attractive gum line. With laser dentistry, there is no need for scalpels and sutures so our patients experience a much faster healing time.

The laser is used for the removal of both subgingival inflamed tissue and calculus deposits, to prepare the pocket and surface of the tooth for healing and new attachment.

Peri-implantitis is a destructive inflammatory process affecting the soft and hard tissues surrounding dental implants. The soft tissues become inflamed whereas the alveolar bone (hard tissue), which surrounds the implant, is lost over time. The bone loss involved in peri-implantitis differentiates this condition from peri-mucositis, a reversible inflammatory reaction involving only the soft tissues around the implant.

Advantages of treating it with Laser Dentistry:

Minimally-invasive technique

No thermal damage to the surrounding bone

Fast regeneration/healing

Reduced inflammatory response

Greater long-term implant success

Digitally controlled handpiece technology for unmatched levels of precision
