Laser Gum Treatment
Dr. Le also specializes in using dental lasers to treat soft tissues, reduce the need for surgical treatments, or drilling when battling gum disease. Lasers allow her to focus only on the infected or damaged tissues, preserving healthy tissue whenever possible. Lasers can also seal nerve endings, reducing discomfort when healing.
These digital devices allow Dr. Le to get a comprehensive view of the layout and underlying structures of your bite, replacing the need for putty impressions when preparing you for crowns or dentures. Intraoral scanners can take in-depth images of your jaw, allowing Dr. Le to access parts of your mouth previously unseen. This increases the effectiveness and stability of your restoration, as well as your comfort throughout the process.
