At 4 Squares Dentistry, we use lasers instead of scalpels to treat teeth and gum problems. We can treat patients without cutting, suturing, or blood loss with laser dentistry. It does away with the need for traditional drills and local anaesthesia. Our experienced dentists in medavakkam, use two types of laser dentistry procedures – hard tissue and soft tissue.
These are procedures done on the teeth such as cavity detection using lasers to find decay. Tooth preparations, filling and treating sensitivity are common hard tissue procedures. A laser is used to kill bacteria and promote long-term health, and the sensitivity is treated by sealing tubules.
Soft tissue procedure is done to the gums. These are often used to treat a gummy smile. A laser is utilised to reshape the gum covering most of the tooth. Crown lengthening, and removing tissue folds are other common soft tissue procedures.
Laser dentistry also treats thick or tight tongue frenulum – the skin that attaches the tongue to the mouth floor. The procedure, known as laser frenectomy, is used for children with speech impediments.
4 Squares Dentistry offers a whole breadth of treatments using lasers:

We suggest that you follow the advice of our dentists regarding the use of fluoride for your child.
