Laser Dentistry

Dental lasers
have revolutionized oral surgery, tooth preparation, and many other procedures. Dr. Majors uses both a soft and hard tissue laser for optimal patient comfort and precise clinical applications.  Laser dentistry is used for: uses both a soft and hard tissue laser for optimal patient comfort and precise clinical applications. Laser dentistry is used for:
Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.

Gummy Smile:
Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.

Muscle Attachment (Frenula):
A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.

Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis):
Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.

Just as an engineer creates a model to ensure that a machine will work correctly, the dentist often fabricates a wax-up model of jaws and teeth when working on more complex restorative or cosmetic cases. By building an accurate model of your mouth, we can test prosthetics,
veneers, and other dental work to ensure a proper fit. You can also see what our proposed solutions will look like on the wax model, so you'll make a truly informed decision about your dental work. If adjustments are required, the dentist adapts the model to reflect changes before the case goes to the dental laboratory. Wax-ups provide us with a realistic projection of how your dental work will look and function, which results in more accurate restorations.
