The Advantages of Soft Tissue Lasers

Soft tissue lasers utilize a wavelength that is highly absorbable by water and hemoglobin (a protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen), making them more effective for soft tissue management. Most often these are DIODE lasers or YAG lasers and may be used as a component of periodontal treatment for their ability to kill bacteria and activate tissue re-growth.

Soft tissue lasers penetrate soft tissue while sealing blood vessels and nerve endings, resulting in virtually NO postoperative pain after laser use and faster tissue healing time. Lasers are gentler and much less invasive when used to treat soft tissues within your mouth.

With lasers, you can expect:

  • Faster healing
  • Less bleeding
  • Reduced swelling

Diode Laser and Cosmetic Gum Recontouring

One of the most powerful tools in laser dentistry, the Diode Laser can produce significant results in procedures such as cosmetic gum recontouring and many other gum treatments. Excess gum tissue can make the teeth appear too short and result in what’s often called a “gummy smile”. With laser dentistry, Dr. Fawcett can renew the proportions and symmetry of the gums along the teeth, enhancing the appearance of your smile without surgery or painful recovery periods.
