Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Diode lasers are an innovative technology that can be utilized in a number of periodontal and dental procedures. Producing energy and light pulses, a diode laser is a minimally invasive tool for treating the delicate tissue of the mouth. General dentist Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot has advanced training in the use of diode lasers to complete safe and effective treatment processes for children and adults. The benefits of laser dentistry can shorten procedure times, speed healing, and reduce the need for sutures following soft tissue (periodontal) treatments. This may then minimize bleeding and the possibility of inflammation or infection following care.

"Trusted Dental was recommended to me by my dental insurance. When I went in it was extremely clean, everyone was wearing masks, they were so happy, even celebrating someone’s birthday with balloons and happy birthday banners were hung around the office. Trusted Dental is also eco friendly providing dry erase paperwork to fill out in order to reduce the use of paper. The wait was maybe 1-2min after I was done filling everything out. Everyone was so gentle that I felt extremely comfortable and safe. They talked me through what they were going to use on me and made sure I was okay throughout the entire process. I was able to watch Netflix while I waited for the images and X-rays to be uploaded. They use top of the line equipment which made the entire process of getting my teeth cleaned not nearly as painful as it has been in the past. Highly recommend this office! I’ll be having all of my family go here from now on. Thank you Trusted Dental for an amazing experience! Update: I can’t thank the staff enough for such an amazing experience every time I come here and everyone is so happy. You can tell when the employees are taken care of you will be too. I just went in for my routine cleaning, had to wait maybe 1 minute and was called back. The cleaning wasn’t painful at all and she kept checking to make sure I was okay. I had my makeup done and she was careful not to spray water everywhere which I greatly appreciate. I look forward going here because I know it’s a clean, happy, stress free experience."- A.J. / Google / Sep 22, 2022

"The service starts in the reception area. I was greeted with a smile and was provided very attentive care during check-in. Excellent customer service! The office is very modern-yet comfortable. During my treatment, after neglecting my dental health for years, Dr. G and the team provided me with a thorough check-up and have helped me to get my dental health back on track. The team uses state of the art technology that provides a comprehensive view of your dental health. As new residents to Wylie, my husband and I have found our dentist. Update! 9/2022 Recently, I completed teeth straightening and I have to say… I’m smiling a lot bigger these days! Consistent services and excellent dental care. I love that they know who I am when I walk in even when new employees are up front. That’s a nice bonus."- R.W. / Google / Sep 22, 2022
Candidates for Laser Care
Laser diode procedures may be ideal for patients of all ages, thanks to their minimally invasive, gentle approach. In fact, some patients who are not candidates for traditional periodontal procedures due to medical conditions may receive laser dentistry care without concern. At Trusted Dental Care, we use the BIOLASE® soft tissue diode laser to perform an array of procedures while increasing accuracy and lessening your treatment time. Some of these procedures include gum sculpting, gum disease treatment, and crown lengthening. The laser can also be used to destroy oral bacteria and remove diseased tissues during treatment.
The Laser Dentistry Process
Diode lasers are emitted through a small, wand-like device that Dr. G. can use to treat various aspects of the gums and other soft tissues in the mouth. Before any procedure with the diode laser, you might be given local anesthesia to help make you more comfortable. However, the use of laser alone is generally more comfortable and often minimizes the need for anesthetic. Energy from the laser is released in short pulses throughout the procedure, which cauterizes the tissue as it works to minimize bleeding. Laser dentistry enhances the precision and ultimately the outcome of several soft tissue dental treatments.
Following a Laser Procedure
After any procedure using a diode laser, you might have slightly inflamed or tender gums but there generally is no need for sutures and bleeding will be limited. The innovative technology often eliminates the need for incisions and resulting sutures and contributes to less downtime and faster healing results following your treatment. Dr. G. and our team will provide specific aftercare instructions that will help in your recovery. Depending on the procedure performed, you may need to schedule a follow-up visit at Trusted Dental Care so Dr. G. can monitor your recovery.
Insurance coverage for procedures performed with laser diode technology will be based on the type of treatment needed. Our financial team can get in touch with your dental insurer to review your coverage and estimate any out-of-pocket expenses. As a full-service practice, Trusted Dental Care accepts a variety of dental insurance plans and convenient forms of payment, including flexible financing plans, to help you get the treatment you need for a healthy smile.
