What to Expect From the New Pioneer Elite Laser Port 3W

New to the market, and new to our dental studio, the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser is changing the way the soft tissue management procedures are performed in the industry. With more than ten thousand units operating across the country, this new and improved laser is highly reliable, approved by the FDA, and trusted by dentist professionals everywhere. So, what does this Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser do? It allows for many common dental procedures to be performed in a less invasive and more efficient manner. Let’s take a look at some of the most common procedures that dentists perform using the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser.

Gum Contouring

This procedure is typically performed when the patient’s gums cover too much of the tooth. Excess gum can be caused by a health issue or it can simply be genetic and not pose a threat to your health. Therefore, this procedure is considered cosmetic. Patients can choose to have their gums contoured if they simply want their teeth to appear longer and improve the appearance of their smile (that is, if the dentist approves the procedure). In some cases, a dentist might recommend this procedure to patients in order to improve their oral health. The Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser is used to evenly and effectively remove gum tissue to reveal more of the tooth’s surface.

Gingivectomy

During a gingivectomy, the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser is used to delay or stop the progression of gum diseases, like gingivitis, or an infection of the gum tissue. Using a laser is a less painful and invasive alternative to performing a traditional gingivectomy. The other option would be for your dentist to use a scalpel. Using a sharp metal tool, like a scalpel, increases the chance of the gums getting infected. Plus, since the laser puts out so much heat, the gums are essentially cauterized during the procedure, which promotes quicker healing.

Frenectomy

A frenulum is a fold of tissue that usually connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth and the upper and lower gums to the lip. In adults, children, and infants, it is possible that the frenulum can become too restrictive to the mouth’s range of motion. Using the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser, this excess tissue can be burnt away painlessly with the proper anesthetic. Again, the recovery process is quick and easy since the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser cauterizes the gum during the process. 

On top of what we have mentioned, there are quite a few more health issues that can be solved using laser treatment. At Cakmes Dental Studio, we get excited about every technological advancement our office makes, but the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser is a big one. We prioritize your comfort, confidence, and your oral health, and we are thrilled that this new product can fulfill all three. Contact us to schedule your appointment or consultation today.

What’s the Difference Between Cerec Crowns and Traditional Crowns?

Blog Single

Technology in dentistry is rapidly evolving each and every day. This comes with many advantages because we love to learn about new ways to enhance the health and appearance of our patients’ teeth. We understand our patients want to have healthy teeth while also having beautiful teeth. Silver and gold covering your teeth and dark fillings are distracting from the beauty of your smile, so we pride ourselves on cosmetically-appealing alternatives to these daunting dental procedures. 

Cerec Restoration

The phrase Cerec comes from the combination of the two words “ceramic” and “reconstruction.” Some people also refer to these crowns as “chair side crowns.” This term stems from the fact that Cerec crowns are able to be applied in one single appointment – no temporary crowns needed! No impressions of your tooth are necessary because Cerec restoration uses a tiny camera to retrieve information on your teeth, such as size and shape. Once this camera has retrieved all of the dimensions it needs, a machine is able to carve out the crown specific to your tooth. Then, your dentist simply cements it onto your tooth with minimal adjusting. Another bonus to Cerec restoration is that crowns can be made in many different shades to accurately match your tooth color. It would essentially be unnoticeable when you smile! 

Traditional Crowns

The traditional way of applying crowns is still used today, but some actually think this method might not be practiced in the future. Typically, when receiving a crown the traditional way, impressions are taken and a temporary crown is applied. This is a multi-appointment process as the development of the crown takes much longer when using impressions instead of the technology that accompanies Cerec crowns. There are two main types of crowns used, porcelain or ceramic, which are similar to the color of the tooth, and a metal crown which would either be gold or silver. 

Cerec restoration saves you a lot of time. It can also save you money since your dentist can get the entire job done in one appointment rather than two or more. The process of receiving a Cerec crown is much more pleasant due to the limited amount of adjusting and not having to receive impressions. Plus, you will never have to worry about your temporary crown falling off while you wait for your permanent crown to be made. If you are interested in this process, either contact us to make an appointment or visit our website to learn more about this service and other services we offer. We look forward to hearing from you!
