Laser Dentistry in Ridgewood
As medical technology evolves, delivering comfortable, minimally invasive care doesn’t just become easier—it becomes the norm. At Advanced Dental Care of Ridgewood, Dr. Scherrer wants to stay at the forefront of these changes, and one way we’re doing that is through laser dentistry. With laser dentistry, procedures that typically required a scalpel and sutures can now be done without either. This makes it ideal for oral surgery, since it rarely affects surrounding tissues. Instead, Dr. Scherrer’s precise laser only cuts where it needs to, minimizing bleeding in the process as it cleans and sterilizes.
How Is Laser Dentistry Used?
Laser dentistry can be used for a wide variety of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry procedures, but it is most commonly used to treat periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease. Using our soft-tissue laser, Dr. Scherrer can gently and efficiently target specific pockets infected by disease-causing bacteria. What’s more, because our laser seals as it cleans there’s no need for sutures, and bleeding is minimal, all of which means that patients can enjoy a more comfortable procedure and a shorter recovery time than is possible with traditional oral surgery.
But periodontal therapy is just one of the many general, cosmetic, and restorative services we can use our soft-tissue laser to perform. Laser dentistry can also be used for gum re-contouring, detecting and eliminating decay, root canal therapy, biopsies, teeth whitening, and more.
