The benefits of using lasers in orthodontics is obvious. There is a quicker recovery time, very little bleeding and inflammation and much less chance of infection. These are some of the benefits of our Soft Tissue Laser Treatment. The treatment is used to adjust or correct excess gum tissue, which can make teeth look too large or too small.
Soft Tissue Laser Treatment is a method for treating gum tissue problems. It is a comfortable, accurate way to “sculpt” or shape gums around the teeth. The treatment has additional benefits such as less pain and less recovery time, not to mention the more beautiful appearance that will result from it.
How Does the Treatment Work?
This treatment is often used in situations where excess gum tissue above the teeth makes the teeth look too small or too large. With the use of a laser, Soft Tissue Laser Treatment removes or re-contours that excess tissue. For the procedure you will receive a numbing injection, eliminating pain. The use of the laser means that nerve endings are better sealed, helping to minimize bleeding and inflammation. The procedure is quick (a few minutes) and is comfortable with a fast healing time.
This procedure can also assist with the problem of impacted teeth, which can cause infection or even jaw misalignment if left untreated. The laser is used to provide a way for the teeth to safely come into the mouth. Once the teeth have erupted, corrective alignment is generally required.
