Soft Tissue Laser
Dental lasers are a versatile tool for more comfortable and effective dental treatment. How dental lasers work? They help us treat conditions in the mouth using light energy. The laser is very selective, and penetrates to the specific depth we want to treat. The tissue absorbs the laser light, which agitates the molecules of the tissue, causing the tissue cells to gently break apart. This very precisely treats only the desired area, while leaving healthy gums, bone and tooth structure untouched.
Dental lasers can be used to treat different kinds of oral conditions. We may use lasers on soft tissues to reshape healthy gum tissues or remove diseased tissue, decontaminate gum pockets that are infected with periodontal disease, and treat some sores in the mouth.
The benefits of lasers:
• They’re gentle and generally painless, so they often require little or no anesthesia
• They can minimize bleeding and swelling, and speed the healing of gum tissues
• They reduce the risk of infection by decontaminating the affected areas.
