Soft Tissue Laser
 

 

Soft Tissue Laser Therapy is a non-surgical treatment for periodontal disease.

The process is clean, less invasive than surgical methods, and promotes much faster healing than conventional surgical procedures. After removing the tartar and calculus, a laser is used to selectively remove diseased or infected tissues lining the pockets around your teeth. At the same time the laser will kill the bacteria that cause your gum disease and promote healing of your gums around your teeth.

Soft tissue laser procedures include:

  • Reshaping or removing gum tissue (Gingivectomy). These procedures are done for periodontal or esthetic reasons or in order to gain access to decay. Soft tissue reshaping may be done to gain proper shapes and forms for teeth and or restorations.
  • Removing soft tissue growths (Fibroma removals, Hemangioma removals.) This procedure is used to remove excess tissue or growths that may be an esthetic or functional problem.
  • Gently removing swollen tissues (Gingivoplasty). This procedure is used to remove excess tissue caused by systemic disease, medication, or poor oral hygiene.
