Non-surgical treatments is a blanket term used to describe dentistry techniques that use noninvasive means to address common problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Thanks to advances in dental tools and technologies, it’s possible to safely correct these issues without time-consuming or potentially dangerous operations.
At the office of Shawna Omid, DDS, the oral health specialists and support staff have decades of experience performing non-surgical treatments. If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease, tooth decay, or chronic bad breath, non-surgical treatments may be able to ease your symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.
At the office of Shawna Omid, DDS, the team offers several non-surgical treatments, including:
Laser periodontal treatment is a non-surgical treatment using a dental laser to carefully remove inflamed gum tissue from around the roots of your teeth. After removing the infected tissue, your dentist scrapes off calculus and dental plaque that’s built up around your gumline. Laser periodontal treatment is safe and pain-free. It also requires less downtime and promises a quicker recovery process than traditional treatments for gum disease.
The Biolase Epic 10 is a cutting edge laser tool capable of performing an array of non-surgical treatments, including teeth whitening and pain management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Treatment with the Biolase Epic 10 is both safe and effective. It’s also incredibly fast, and most patients leave the office within 45 minutes of their appointment.
The Waterlase IPlus is a minimally invasive non-surgical treatment system safe for addressing problems with hard and soft tissues, including your teeth and gums. Waterlaser IPlus is incredibly versatile. It can control bleeding, access hard-to-reach areas of decay, and safely manage impinged tissue.
If you have gingivitis or periodontitis, your dentist might recommend treatment with bio stimulations. Bio stimulations help reduce inflammation caused by gum disease and promote faster healing.
To determine the type of non-surgical treatment you’ll most benefit from, make an appointment at the office of Shawna Omid, DDS. Following an oral exam, discussion of your symptoms, and review of your medical history, your dentist can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs.
