Here at Oregon Coast Dental Care, we are proud to offer laser dentistry for our patients.
Laser dentistry is not very common, though there are many benefits to using laser during procedures. Wounds from the surgery heal much faster because there is less damage to the surrounding tissue. Lasers minimize bleeding and post-surgical bacterial infections. Often, anesthesia and sutures are not needed after procedures when a laser is used.
Lasers can be used for many different dental procedures. It is an efficient way to find cavities. It can be used to fill them without the need for anesthesia. It can be used to remold gums that grow up and over a patient’s teeth. Many dentists use a laser for dental surgery, like cutting out extra tissue in the mouth, to remove tumors, and much more.
Laser dentistry makes procedures much smoother, more efficient, and less painful for patients. People who are afraid or very anxious at the dentist should find dentists who offer laser dentistry. They will be surprised at how painless it can be to come to the dentist.
Solea Sleep-Laser Snore Treatment
Oregon Coast Dental is excited to announce that we are now offering laser therapy for snoring. The primary source of snoring is the vibrations that can occur when air flows past the relaxed tissue in the soft palate. These tissues can become even more relaxed with age or weight gain. Solea Sleep improves your quality of sleep by gently tightening tissue in your soft palate and reducing those vibrations. The ultra-low laser will tighten and stiffen the collagen in the Lamina Propria layer of the soft palate.
Unlike surgical procedures that require long and painful recoveries, Solea Sleep is a quick, comfortable, non-surgical procedure that is completed in a single visit with a possibility of a follow up treatment after 3 weeks. Enjoy rapid relief from snoring for you and your partner that has the potential to last a year or longer.
