Laser Dentistry Treatments
Soft tissue laser: A dental diode laser is used for treatments like sterilization, tooth whitening, and treating gum disease. As opposed to a hard tissue laser, a soft tissue laser mainly works around the gums in the oral cavity.
Gum Recontouring: Laser dentistry can be used to address a gummy smile, restore a receding gum line, or change the shape of the gum line. Laser therapy safely and effectively contours the gum line to match your cosmetic and oral health needs.
Frenectomies: A frenectomy is a band of tissue that attaches to the lip or tongue. A lip or tongue-tie can restrict a patient’s range of motion. However, using a laser cuts the tissue and releases the lip or tongue.
Cold Sores: Cold sores are blisters in the mouth that can cause itching, pain, and other symptoms. Patients can prevent a cold sore from breaking out. A laser will remove the cold sore and help your mouth heal quickly.
