Technology has continued to affect every aspect of health care, including dentistry. New materials and treatments (such as dental implants) continue to make the lives of patients better.
Recently, our own Dr. Swartzentruber received certification in a new aspect of oral care: laser dentistry. This allows us to do a variety of things for you at our practice with little to no pain and shorter recovery times compared to traditional dental treatment options.
Call 334-600-1423 to schedule an appointment at Carmichael Dental Care in Montgomery, AL to receive the benefits of our laser dental care.
What Are Dental Lasers?
Dental lasers can be used in a variety of ways on both soft tissue and hard tissue. In general, you can think of a laser as an alternative to a scalpel. This can be beneficial for a variety of reasons.
First, many people find the laser to be painless. As a result, you may not need any anesthetic or sedation to complete treatments such as gum surgery to treat periodontal disease.
Second, the laser also seals the soft tissue, often making sutures unnecessary. This also reduces your recovery time after your procedure.
Third, the versatility of the laser allows us to provide a wide range of services without the noise created by other equipment. This, too, can make dental visits more pleasant for you as a patient.
Why Certification Matters
Without questions, dental lasers can be an invaluable tool when used correctly. However, they are only effective in the hands of someone who understands when to use them and knows how to use them.
This is why Dr. Swartzentruber recently completed a training by the American Board of Laser Surgery. This is the only medical specialty board in the world dedicated to advanced education for improved understanding and competency in using lasers and light in surgery, medicine, and aesthetics.
Dr. Swartzentruber passed an exam and completed a seminar that included hands-on training in a number of areas:
- Cosmetic Dentistry
- Hard Tissue Laser Dentistry
- Oral Surgery
- Pediatric Dentistry
Putting this knowledge into practice for you and your loved ones will improve the quality of your dental care. This is part of our commitment to providing the best care possible for everyone who visits our office.
