Laser Dentistry Treatment
There are multiple treatments that can be performed using dental lasers, including:
- Frenectomies: Patients who have tongue-tie or lip-tie benefit from treatment with dental lasers. Dental lasers can be used to cut the band of tissue that connects the tongue tip to the mouth or the upper lip to the gums. After their frenectomy treatment, patients have a better range of movement.
- Gum Contouring: If patients have infected gum tissue or even a gummy smile, dental lasers can remove the problematic soft tissue. A gummy smile occurs when there is excess gum tissue above the top teeth or below the bottom teeth. Lasers can contour the gums to show more of the tooth enamel for an aesthetically pleasing cosmetic result. Dental lasers can also remove areas of gum infection and prevent the spread of periodontitis, or gum disease.
- Gum Grafting: Patients with receding gums who need more healthy gum tissue may consider gum grafting. During gum grafting treatment, we remove healthy tissue from one area of the mouth and place it in another. We can use dental lasers to perform grafting treatment without any pain or bleeding.
