Oral Surgery Services for Orlando, FL
No one wants to hear that in order to maintain their oral health they must have oral surgery. At Sand Lake Family Dental, however, Dr. Maali can perform certain procedures like Extractions, soft tissue excision and even Dental Implants using minimally invasive techniques.
Oral Surgery Procedures
Laser dentistry is a relatively new advancement in dentistry that has made oral surgery and several other procedures more palatable to have and more effective and efficient to perform. Laser dentistry uses an intense beam of light that is projected by a dental laser. Oral surgery performed by laser treatment is far less painful than traditional surgery and usually requires a shorter recovery time. The other benefits of laser dentistry include:
- Faster healing and tissue regeneration
- Less bleeding, if any, because the laser seals blood vessels
- Less use of anesthesia
- More conservative dentistry, meaning that more of your original tooth structure is preserved
- Stitches and sutures are required less often
Reshaping Gum Tissue
Dr. Maali performs a number of surgical procedures with the aid of laser dentistry. For a patient who has a gummy smile, or excessive gum tissue, a laser can comfortably reshape gum tissue. Dental lasers remove the excess gum tissue to reveal more of a tooth’s surface, thereby creating a more natural looking smile. In addition, a dental laser can be used to remove soft tissue folds that can cause discomfort for a denture wearer.
Mini Dental Implants Placements
For loose denture retention, we use a micro-surgery and insertion of mini dental implants to help secure upper or lower dentures so they can stay in place when eating all your favorite meals. There is no need for sedation, or flap surgery. The procedure takes less than an hour and you can usually eat solid foods with you denture the same day.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Outside of oral surgery needs, a dental laser can also be used to speed teeth whitening. Exposed to a dental laser, the particles of peroxide in a whitening gel or solution become more active and thereby make teeth whiter that much faster.
