Patient-Centered Care For Improved Health And Wellness
Soft Tissue Laser Therapy
Comfortable. Versatile. Precise.
Our soft tissue laser therapy is transforming the way modern dentistry treats periodontal disease (or gum disease) by eliminating the need for loud or irritable drills. Laser dentistry continues to grow as a popular asset in modern dental care for its proven results in providing efficient deep cleanings and supporting more effective dental surgeries. During use, this savvy dental tool works by gently removing or sterilizing areas of infection or disease in the mouth to encourage healthier gums and tissue. Patients may best enjoy the use of laser therapy for its needle-free approach as it may reduce the need for injections or anesthesia. Curious about laser dentistry? Give us a call to find out more!
Uses of Soft Tissue Laser Therapy
Only a licensed practitioner may use laser dentistry, but the technology and advanced precision is ideal for a wide range of treatments:
- Reshapes gum tissue during tooth extractions or crown lengthening
- Can be used to perform tissue biopsies or to remove lesions
- Helps treat root canal infections and gum disease
- Can be used to enhance precision of dental cleanings
- May be used to improve effects of teeth whitening
With the ability to eliminate bacteria from gum tissue or dental caries (cavities) and precision control in the hands of your dentist, laser dentistry may reduce the number of visits made to the dentist per treatment by delivering more efficient results than traditional dental treatment methods. In cases of dental surgery, these lasers effectively reduce bleeding by sealing blood vessels and nerve endings for a better experience during treatment and faster healing overall.
Soft Tissue Laser Therapy and Periodontal Disease
Calm Puffy Red Gums
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, nearly half of all Americans suffer from periodontal disease (or gum disease). Soft tissue laser therapy effectively targets areas where gum disease forms and effectively eliminates and sanitizes the affected areas, even able to reduce the risks of developing gum disease again in the future. Our soft laser therapy treatment also uses gingival contouring to remove excess tissue or to prepare the mouth and gums for veneer placement. As a result patients experience an improved dental health with reduced risks of developing certain dental conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease.
