Laser technology has transformed the way modern dentists care for their patients. In Phoenix, Dr. Babak Behbahani incorporates laser dentistry techniques into a variety of services, such as:
Gum Disease Treatment — Periodontal disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss. Incorporating soft tissue lasers into your gum disease treatment can improve the results and help speed up healing. When we combine lasers with periodontal scaling and root planing (deep cleanings) we can safely eradicate infectious bacteria deep within the gum pockets around teeth.
Snoring Treatment — NIGHTLASE laser therapy is a safe and non-invasive solution for people who struggle with snoring. The gentle, warm laser works by firming up looser tissues at the back of the throat, naturally widening the airway for improved oxygen flow.
Laser Lip “Fillers” — OK. Technically it’s not an injectable “filler” in that sense, but lasers can also be used to produce some of the same “plumping” results that people seek from cosmetic injectables. Only in this case, LIPLASE laser treatment stimulates the cells inside of your delicate lip tissues to safely trigger a fuller appearance. Lip enhancement is a great add-on to other cosmetic services or can be performed as a single service.
Anti-Wrinkle Treatment — As a dentist, Dr. Babak Behbahani has an intense understanding of your facial structures, muscles, and various features. Between your mouth and TMJ, the intense network of tissues and nerves require a high level of awareness of head and neck anatomy. So, it should come as no surprise when we’re also able to incorporate anti-wrinkle and other skin smoothing treatments during your appointment! Smoothlase laser treatments use technology to stimulate collagen, improve skin tone, and smooth fine lines across your face.
Managing Tooth Sensitivity — Do you have extremely sensitive teeth? Although the cause of tooth sensitivity can vary, sometimes the symptoms don’t require actual restorative treatment to the tooth. In those scenarios, it may be possible to apply a warm yet powerful laser to the tooth to help desensitize its hyperactive nerve tissues. Most people see full results after just one or two treatments.
Teeth Whitening — Same day teeth whitening doesn’t technically use a “laser” per se, but most people do refer to it as “laser whitening”. The difference in this type of a whitening treatment and take-home trays is that a powerful, bright light is used to activate the bleaching agents (quickly oxidizing the stain particles) to whiten your teeth in just one appointment. Although the light is extremely bright and you will need to wear protective eyewear, it isn’t actually a laser in the sense of FDA-approved medical devices.
The Best is Yet to Come
Phoenix laser dentistry ensures gentler, minimally-invasive treatments for our patients. Laser technology is continually being adapted in other areas of oral health, such as fillings or bone regeneration. As these advancements become more streamlined, it will be easier to keep your smile healthier than ever before.
