Laser

 

Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. The potential for laser dentistry to improve dental procedures rests in the dentist’s ability to control power output and the duration of exposure on the tissue (whether gum or tooth structure), allowing for treatment of a highly specific area of focus without damaging surrounding tissues.

 

Gingival Curettage:  A procedure desinged to remove the soft tissue lining of the periodontal pocket, leaving only a gingival connective tissue lining.  This promotes new connective tissue attachment to the tooth.

Crown Lengthening:  Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.

Gummy Smile:  Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.

Muscle Attachment(Frenula):  A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.

Soft Tissue Folds(Epulis):  Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
