The application of lasers in dentistry opens the door to perform a wide variety of dental procedures that were once very complex or just not possible. Lasers provide many benefits including:

  • procedures performed on soft tissue may not require sutures (stitches)
  • reducing the healing time of cold sores
  • allowing wounds to heal faster by reducing the damage to surrounding tissue
  • gingival recontouring
  • gingivoplasty

Common Procedure the Laser can Help You!

Cold Sores:
Low intensity dental lasers reduce healing time and pain associated with cold sores.

Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser). Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.

Benign Tumours: Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of benign tumours situated on the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips.

Gummy Smile: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.

Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis): Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.

Muscle Attachment (Frenum): A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied and babies who are unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments caused by limited tongue movements .
