200th Street Dental is one of the few locations in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley equipped with the Picasso Dental Laser.
Lasers help to reduce the risk of infection by killing the bacteria that cause cavities and sterilizing the exposed surface of the tooth prior to a filling or other restoration. They can also be used to desensitize teeth that are sensitive to cold.
One of the best features of the Picasso Dental Laser is its use for treating periodontal disease. Our hygienists have been specially trained to use the laser to treat problems from bleeding gums to deep pockets or spaces around the teeth where plaque and tarter build up and cause gum disease. This laser is so advanced over other lasers that it can determine what needs to be removed under the gums and what doesn’t. This way you get very conservative treatment that in the end is much easier and faster for you in the healing process. This is just one more way that we’re trying to ensure that you keep your teeth for a lifetime.
With laser dentistry, there are no incisions or stitches for soft-tissue surgery such as gum therapy and gum contouring or treatments for cankers and cold sores. Because the high-energy beam minimizes bleeding and disinfects the tissue at the same time, the healing process is also much faster.
We are able to provide the following services for soft tissue:
