Our office offers the use of laser dentistry for a more comfortable and less invasive dental experience. Laser dentistry has many benefits including: procedures performed with a laser most times do not require stitches, certain procedure don’t require anesthesia (shot for numbing), and there is minimal bleeding due to the laser's ability to aid in the clotting process. Some procedures that can be performed with a laser include:
Crown lengthening- The reshaping of the gum tissue to expose healthier tooth structure. This provides a stronger foundation for placing restorations.
Improve appearance- Many times a laser can be used to reshape the gum line and expose additional healthy tooth structure and help eliminate a “gummy” smile. Frenectomy- This is the ideal treatment for children who are tongue tied. A laser frenectomy can also help eliminate speech impediments caused by a restricted or tight frenulum.
