Dr. Glenn Belen of San Mateo Dental Care provides the most comfortable and accurate dental treatments to his patients in the San Mateo, CA area. With the advanced technology of the Picasso Lite laser, patients can undergo painless soft tissue procedures.
Picasso Lite is a portable diode laser that produces a high-intensity beam of light in a specific wavelength. This laser’s accuracy allows Dr. Belen to perform various procedures, including:
The greatest advantage of the Picasso Lite laser is its effectiveness in treating gum disease. Gum disease is caused by harmful oral pathogens that irritate the gums, leading to a compromised seal to teeth, allowing bacteria to penetrate deeper into the gums, affecting the connective tissue and bone that support the teeth.
Traditional gum disease treatment involves invasive and uncomfortable procedures, with an extended recovery period. However, with the Picasso Lite laser, Dr. Belen can remove diseased, infected, and inflamed gum tissue with minimal bleeding or sutures, as the laser automatically cauterizes. Laser energy sanitizes periodontal pockets and root surfaces for speedy healing, causing minimal discomfort during and after treatment and little post-procedure swelling.
