Here at Dr. Dipika Shah's office, we utilize modern technology for more effective dental procedures and treatments, including laser surgery. Laser surgery is performed by Dr. Dipika Shah using the Picasso AMD dental lasers. With this type of laser, she is able to shoot a beam of light for precision in help with a variety of treatments and dental issues. It is more effective, faster, heals fast, no bleeding and much more comfortable for patients, as opposed to using scalpels and other dental techniques.
Soft tissue procedures that we can use the Picasso dental laser for include crown lengthening, biopsies, removing pulp during a root canal procedure, gingivectomy, coagulation during different dental surgeries,and even the treatment of canker sores.
Laser surgery using the dental laser is not only effective, but a safe treatment option as well. It has been approved for use by the FDA, and an excellent alternative to using scalpels, with the longer recovery time associated with scalpel types of surgery techniques. No cuts, no bleeding and faster healing. The Picasso laser is a handheld device that is easy to use, very versatile and not expensive for patients.
Please call our office at 732-264-8180 to learn more about procedures that use laser surgery.
