What Can Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry Do For You

A laser is a small beam of intensely focused light. Laser therapy allows for precise control during soft tissue treatment. In addition, the lasers can perform several functions. In addition to removing tissue, they can also be used to reduce bleeding and swelling, seal blood vessels and seal nerve endings.

There are many benefits to laser therapy instead of traditional surgical procedures. The diseased areas can be targeted accurately and precisely meaning less unnecessary pain. In fact, the amount of swelling, pain, and bleeding are greatly reduced due to the less invasive nurture of laser therapy. All of these factors result in a shorter healing and recovery time.

Following are some of the most common applications for laser applications in dentistry:

  • Soft Tissue Surgery. When done with laser instead of a scalpel, laser technology results in decreased post-operative pain.
  • Periodontal Procedures. Lasers allow dentists to not only gain easier access to deeper calculus deposits, but they help the dentist target only damaged tissue which allows for better healing.
  • Implant Recovery. Because soft-tissue modification around the implant can be done quickly using laser technology, it minimizes the trauma from the procedure if another method were used.
  • Treating Aphthous Ulcers. These are more commonly known as canker sores – and if you’ve had one, you know they can be painful. Now, instead of just using topical treatment, dentists can use lasers to promote quick healing without the use of chemicals.
  • Frenectomy. When a soft tissue laser is used for this procedure, there is often no need for anesthesia. An added bonus? Very little bleeding.
