With soft tissue lasers, our dentists can provide you with more effective, accurate care and minimize the recovery time required after treatment. Soft tissue lasers are very versatile and can be used for many dental treatments, including:

  • • Frenectomy
  • • Crown lengthening
  • • Periodontal treatments
  • • Cold and canker sores
  • • Removing gum tissue that is damaged
  • • Uncovering a tooth that has become impacted
  • • Gumline contouring
  • • Oral tissue biopsies
  • • Lesion removal

Some soft tissue lasers can also be used to during sleep apnea and teeth whitening treatments.

The use of soft tissue lasers comes with many benefits. You can have more accurate and effective treatment because of the increased control soft tissue lasers provide. Lasers allow treatment to be completed more quickly, reduce risk of infection and bleeding after the procedure, and can treat a precise area without causing damage to nearby tissue. Soft tissue lasers can also enhance patient comfort and are very quiet, unlike dental drills and other tools.

We encourage you to contact our dental office today for more information about our soft tissue laser and to book a visit with our dentists.
