Soft Tissue Laser Treatment is a cutting-edge orthodontic solution. Gum tissue is what we call a “frame” for your mouth. A laser can “sculpt” gums around teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing look. These tools are highly versatile and very precise. They can provide more comfortable orthodontic treatments with less treatment time and no pain.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Some patients have gums that extend too far down onto the upper front teeth, making the teeth appear small. Conversely, there can be excess gum tissue above the teeth, which makes the teeth seem exceptionally large. Soft Tissue Laser Treatment can re-contour or remove excess gum tissue to ensure that the gum height is perfect for that individual’s appearance, providing a more balanced, symmetrical smile. Lasers can seal nerve endings, stop bleeding and are used without a numbing injection, causing less pain to the patient. This treatment reduces inflammation, offering patients greater comfort and faster healing.
Soft Tissue Laser Treatment can also be used on impacted teeth, which can lead to problems like infection, pain and even jaw misalignment. Laser treatment can be used to help impacted teeth grow into the mouth. In most cases, the tooth will likely need to be aligned following laser treatment.
