Dr. Holtzclaw and his dental hygienist use one of the most technologically advanced dental lasers available: The 1064 xLase. Both have advanced training in laser dentistry and are among the most experienced laser providers in Austin. Dental lasers have many clinical benefits including:
- Many laser procedures require NO anesthesia
- Many laser procedures require NO stitches
- Laser procedures minimize bleeding
- Laser procedures eliminate harmful oral bacteria
- Laser procedures tend to heal faster
While lasers can be used for a variety of procedures including minor periodontal surgery, they do have certain limitations. Lasers are a great therapy for mild periodontal disease, but are not a substitute for surgery in cases of moderate to severe periodontal disease. In these more advanced cases, however, lasers are often utilized during the surgical treatment to eliminate bacteria and infected gum tissue.
Dr. Holtzclaw and his staff would be happy to discuss whether or not laser therapy is the correct treatment for your dental condition. If you would like additional information about laser dental therapy, please contact Dr. Holtzclaw and his expert Lone Star Periodontics team at 512-453-1600.
