Laser Dentistry Advantages for Gum Treatment
Our doctors employ dental technology whenever they can to improve our patient care. A good example is lasers, which have revolutionized many dental procedures. Before lasers, dentists used a scalpel to remove excess gum tissue (and some still do!).
Lasers offer many benefits, including:
- Less discomfort. Most patients will not even require anesthesia for a gum reshaping treatment. Though if you would like us to numb the area before we begin, we’re happy to do so. You’ll experience less tenderness following the procedure too.
- Less treatment time. Reshaping gums with a scalpel often requires multiple office visits. With a laser, the entire gum reshaping treatment can be completed in just one visit.
- Faster recovery. Because the laser cauterizes tissue as we work, no stitches are required. Not only that, but there is little chance of infection following your procedure.
We have a periodontist on our staff here who does that on occasion as well. Again, similar issues if a patient maybe feels like they're showing too much gum when they smile we can recontour the gums back. And again. Sometimes that's just done alone or in conjunction with a cosmetic procedure like a crown or veneer. And. Oftentimes by showing more tooth structure, patient feels more confident in their smile.
