Best Candidates for Dental Laser Surgery
There are many cases in which a laser treatment could be necessary. For a biopsy, the laser can be used to remove tissue in the needed region. Laser gum therapy may also assist if you would like to eliminate overgrown gum tissue and also increase teeth visibility to get a more appealing smile. During the second stage of the dental implant process, laser technology is typically used to uncover the previously placed implant without the need for more invasive measures. In a frenectomy procedure, the laser is used to disconnect either the labial or lingual frenum to restore the full mobility of the upper lip or tongue. When compared to classic surgery on the gums, laser therapies tend to be less invasive and don't need sutures. While anesthesia may still be needed, you can expect to have a shorter healing time.
What to Expect
Your laser treatment can be performed in our office with either local or IV sedation depending on the procedure. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Lucaci will discuss precisely what you ought to expect throughout the procedure whether you're having a gum contouring treatment, obtaining a dental biopsy, are in the second stage of the implant process, or are needing a frenectomy. The laser reduces bleeding and frequently omits the need for sutures.
Dr. Lucaci will provide you with recovery instructions before you're allowed to leave our facility. Considering that your mouth may be tender or swollen, you might choose to adhere to a soft food or liquid diet for a couple of days. For any dental laser procedure, you might have to make another appointment so Dr. Lucaci can evaluate your healing and determine if a second treatment is necessary. When a biopsy has been performed, you might have to return to our office to get your results. If oral cancer is diagnosed, Dr. Lucaci will discuss your treatment choices and what to do next.
As soon as your laser treatment plan is made, Dr. Lucaci will talk about the payment. Oral Facial and Implant Surgery Salina takes several payments including medical financing. For those who have insurance, we can get in touch with your provider to calculate your coverage and personal expenses.
