Our practice uses limited soft tissue laser treatments to painlessly remove gum tissue in certain areas.
Some of the applications for the laser treatments in our practice include:
Removal of excess gum tissue to more fully show off that amazing smile
Reshaping the gum tissue to more fully achieve balance and symmetry in a patient’s smile
Exposure of erupting teeth to allow orthodontic treatment to be completed more quickly.
Treatment of canker sores
Laser treatment times are very short. After the topical anesthetic gel is applied (no shots!), most procedures are completed within 5-8 minutes. The laser removes tissue quickly and accurately, which results in rapid healing with minimal discomfort. Laser treatment is not needed by most of our patients, and there are limitations in its use.
