Featured Technology – Laser Dentistry
Fewer than 10% of dentists have incorporated laser dentistry into their practices and treatments. The dental laser allows Dr. Cobb to perform many soft tissue procedures that would otherwise require surgery. Dental lasers are used in all facets of Dr. Cobb’s practice including cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
For general dentistry procedures, the dental laser is helpful because it reduces the need for anesthesia and limits bleeding and swelling. Dental lasers are especially effective when treating patients with gum disease. The laser beam uses a gentle, conservative cutting action that has coagulating capabilities. This reduces the risk of infection, minimizes bleeding and allows for a speedier recovery.
