Dr. Ronald D. Walker uses electrosurgery technology to provide more precise and hygienic treatments. With electrosurgery, we can trim and cauterize tissue more quickly and effectively, resulting in less bleeding during your procedure and a quicker healing time following it. We invite you to contact our office at 520-297-2511 to learn more about electrosurgery in Oro Valley, Arizona, and schedule your consultation with our skilled dentist.
Electrosurgery relies on using a high-frequency electrical current to generate intense localized heat at the surgical site, similar to the way in which a laser dental treatment will work. Unlike lasers, however, electrosurgery works over the entire surface of the electrode tip that comes in contact with tissue. This gives our dentist the ability to sculpt tissue precisely. Electrosurgery also induce heat in fluids, making it extremely helpful in procedures like root canal therapy and teeth whitening, among others.
Electrosurgery is as safe or safer than traditional method of performing oral surgery or laser surgeries. Electrosurgery provides a greater deal of surgical precision and helps control bleeding, making it ideal for small surgical sites. Our dentist will review treatment options with you prior to your procedure to ensure that you receive the treatment that will be most beneficial for you.
