Village Smile Care’s dental hygienist, Nikki, recently completed an advanced laser dentistry continuing education course to further improve a variety of dental treatments including gum disease therapy and other soft tissue treatments.
Mount Horeb, WI (PRWEB) - Laser dentistry is now being used as a more effective and minimally invasive alternative to traditional dental treatments. Recently, Dr. Angela Cotey’s team member and trusted dental hygienist, Nikki, completed the latest training in how to offer effective laser dentistry treatment for cases of gum disease in Mt. Horeb, WI. This course, offered by Madison Area Technical College, offered an insightful and detailed look into using diode dental lasers safely and effectively for periodontal therapy.
Lasers have been used in the medical field for decades. Covering the history of lasers in dentistry, this course delves into the benefits of applying this modern medical advancement into everything from basic treatments to complex gum disease therapy. Various clinical applications and procedures were reviewed before hands-on training and testing. Following proper safety guidelines and proven treatment techniques, laser dentistry treatments studied in this course offer the precise care patients need for a lasting and healthy smile.
Dr. Angela Cotey and her team of skilled dental hygienists like Nikki, strive to not only offer effective care, but treatments that minimize discomfort and follow-up treatments. Using diode dental lasers, they are able to offer laser bacterial reduction and laser-assisted non-surgical gum disease therapy in Mt. Horeb, WI. Both offer more precise and effective care as the dental laser targets disease-causing bacteria and reduces the chances of infection, boosting the immune system.
Gum disease, if left untreated can lead to gum recession, tooth loss and even systemic health issues such as heart disease and kidney failure. Laser gum therapy may not be for everyone, though. Dr. Cotey and her team will recommend a specific treatment plan depending on the stage of gum disease a patient is in as well as their unique situation.
