The application of lasers in dentistry opens the door to perform a wide variety of dental procedures that were once very complex or just not possible.
Lasers provide many benefits including:
Procedures performed on soft tissue may not require sutures (stitches) reducing the healing time of cold sores allowing wounds to heal faster by reducing the damage to surrounding tissue
Common Procedure the Laser can Help You!
Cold Sores: Low intensity dental lasers reduce healing time and pain associated with cold sores.
Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser). Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
Benign Tumours: Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of benign tumours situated on the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips.
Gummy Smile: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis): Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
Muscle Attachment (Frenum): A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied and babies who are unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement.
A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments caused by limited tongue movements .
