Soft-tissue laser treatment: Gum contouring, gum disease treatment, frenectomy, precise, minimal bleeding, faster healing

What is laser therapy?

There are two types of laser therapy: hard tissue and soft tissue. Each utilizes focused beams of light energy to precisely and effectively address various dental concerns. These advanced lasers can target both tooth structure (hard tissue) and gum tissue (soft tissue), offering numerous advantages over traditional methods.

When it comes to hard-tissue laser treatment, the laser is used to remove decayed or damaged tooth structure precisely. The laser's energy vaporizes the affected area, allowing for minimally invasive and highly accurate cavity preparation. With the ability to selectively remove decay while preserving healthy tooth structure, hard-tissue laser treatment reduces the need for drilling and potentially eliminates the need for anesthesia. This results in a more comfortable and anxiety-free experience for patients.

Soft-tissue laser treatment

Soft-tissue laser treatment is also transformative and offers a wide range of benefits for gum-related issues. It can be used for procedures such as gum contouring, treatment of gum disease, and frenectomy (removal of the tissue connecting the lips or tongue to the gums). The laser precisely targets and eliminates diseased or excess gum tissue while also sealing blood vessels and nerve endings. This results in minimal bleeding, reduced post-operative discomfort, and faster healing times. Soft-tissue laser treatment is often less invasive than traditional surgical methods, promoting better patient comfort and satisfaction.

By harnessing the power of laser treatment, we can often address various dental concerns more efficiently and with greater precision. Additionally, laser treatment can stimulate the regeneration of healthy tissues, promoting faster healing and reducing the risk of complications.
