Mint Dental Care is committed to providing our patients with the newest dental technology and treatment advances, and we are excited to provide the latest in laser technology for dentistry. With extensive training in laser dentistry, our dental team is recognized as a laser dental specialist in Sunnyvale and surrounding communities. The combination of laser dentistry experience along with advanced equipment enable our team to use this virtually painless, less invasive form of dental care to provide patients with comfortable, cost effective treatments. Whether you have tooth decay or would like to improve your appearance with a gum lengthening procedure, our soft tissue lasers will leave you with a smile that is both healthier and more beautiful.
During an appointment with one of our hygienists, the light energy of the laser will be focused into the pockets that surround the teeth effectively destroying the bacteria and decontaminating the area. The laser process is highly effective, non-invasive, painless and normally only takes about 5-10 minutes.
Pockets in the gums that surround our teeth are an attractive environment for these bacteria. As they grow in number, they cause inflammation and can enter the blood stream. They can even be inhaled, entering our bodies through the lining of the bronchial tubes leading to our lungs. They also can be passed to another person thru intimate contact.
Periodontal, or gum disease, is growing at nearly epidemic rates. This inflammation of the gums (it may or may not be painful) is caused by bacteria that live in the tissues surrounding our teeth and affect nearly 80% of adults in the US. Recent studies link periodontal disease to the increased likelihood of heart disease, kidney failure, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and stroke.
