Las Vegas Dentist, Mark Edington DDS publishes dental information of interest to Las Vegas, NV residents. Dr. Edington's goal is to raise awareness of oral health issues to improve the quality of life for his hometown community of Las Vegas.
I am attending the 2015 Nobel Biocare Symposium this weekend. The symposium is a 3 day conference providing continuing education on dental implant treatments. The symposium is the annual meeting for the largest dental implant company in North America. I was invited by Las Vegas oral surgeon Bryce Leavitt to attend. I am updating my knowledge on the latest materials and techniques in implant dentistry.
Las Vegas residents are becoming increasingly aware of a technology that is changing the way dentists retore teeth.
Adults in Las Vegas are increasingly seeking out orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles. In my Las Vegas dental office alone we have seen an over 120% increase in the past two years in adults seeking out orthodontic treatment. Dental braces have become more popular in Las Vegas and throughout the country as more people have been educated on the benefits of a straight healthy smile. Much of the increase in adult orthodontics can likely be attributed to the ease and convenience of newer, modern methods in teeth straightening.
Lasers have become increasingly more common in Las Vegas as dentists expand the use of lasers for dental care. Soft tissue lasers help dentists to expose tooth structure that has been buried in unhealthy puffy gums. Laser are used to sterilized gum tissues in the treatment of periodontal disease to shorten healing time after treatment by dental hygienists. Lasers can zap cold sores and decrease the severity of recurrence. Apthous ulcers, tissue tags and infections can all be treated with lasers. The applications for a dental laser are growing everyday and I find new uses for my laser each year at my practice here in Las Vegas. I feel lucky to have a diode laser at my disposal for daily use on my patients. They appreciate the comfort of laser procedures in comparison with the old way of doing things. The precision of a dental laser assisted procedure is simply unmatched by any other method. I wish that all my colleagues her in Las Vegas would jump onboard and get a laser themselves to bring our patients the highest quality care.
