We provide non-invasive procedures that are not only gentle but also effective. With soft tissue lasers, we can predict treatment outcomes better and make you feel more comfortable during your visits.
Soft tissue lasers use highly targeted beams of light to treat soft tissues in the mouth, which include the gums. Soft tissue laser treatments in dentistry include cold sore treatments and cauterization (burning tissue to close a wound) of small blood vessels.
Soft tissue lasers are applicable in different procedures, including the following:
Dentists recognize the advantages that laser dentistry comes with. Lasers have sterilization abilities, which reduce the risk of infection during procedures. They also minimize post-procedural discomfort for patients.
As a result, patients who have previously received successful treatment with soft tissue lasers begin to seek them out. Soft tissue lasers are also ideal for those with dental anxiety.
Some patients feel uneasy with the sight, smell, and sound of the dental office. With soft tissue lasers, noise is minimized during procedures. They keep the treatment area clean and the environment relaxed.
Lasers can also be adjusted depending on the intensity or power required for the procedure. They can be used in place of a scalpel, which reduces the physical contact with the teeth and gums. They also use less heat.
Soft tissue lasers in dentistry are safe, provided you're receiving treatment from trained and experienced dental professionals.
Important safety precautions, such as wearing protective eyeglasses, are required during the procedure. Your dentist determines the right wavelength and energy to be used for your situation.
Soft tissue lasers offer greater satisfaction and make patients happier. We're excited to show you this dental technology in our office, which is giving patients positive dental experiences.
