In addition to adopting habits like eating right, brushing and flossing, scheduling dental exams and cleanings with Omaha Laser Dentistry are the most important ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong.
Recommended every six months, they’re a great way to let us know about any changes in your health or physical condition that might impact your oral health. They also give us the opportunity to examine your gums, teeth and insides of your mouth to screen for cancer, check your bite and perform preventive services, such as the removal of plaque, tartar and stains, the application of fluoride and more.
We’ll also polish your teeth to make them look and feel clean and sparkling.
Periodically, your bi-annual exams might include X-rays of your mouth. This allows Dr. Bolamperti to see with greater detail to detect any problems that need to be addressed – before you have symptoms and before they’re visible to the naked eye.
Periodontitis or Gum disease can lead to bad breath and receding gums, painful chewing and sensitivity, or worse yet, tooth loss or the need for surgery. It’s one of the common conditions we see at Omaha Laser Dentistry, and one we’re experts in treating.
Say the words, “root canal,” and there’s a perception of pain. So, it may surprise you to learn that our patients at Omaha Laser Dentistry often tell us they don’t know what they were worried about. And for good reason.
Dr. Tony Bolamperti has extensive experience and specialized board certifications to perform most oral surgeries in office. The use of both traditional and laser techniques often helps reduce healing times while eliminating the need for anesthesia.
If you’ve been told your child needs a frenectomy, Dr. Bolamperti has the expertise to perform this procedure using the Solea laser and a topical anesthetic (or just a little local anesthetic) – rather than a scalpel or scissors.
