Soft-Tissue Laser Dentistry

Beyond routine preventive visits and an occasional cosmetic touchup, your smile may require more extensive care at some point. With a dedication to keeping your smile healthy and your dental care comfortable, Dr. Lawson often uses advanced laser dentistry to perform a number of soft-tissue procedures, such as cold sore treatment or the removal of diseased tissue. From cosmetic gum contouring to childhood frenectomy and more, laser dentistry makes soft-tissue surgery a much faster, safer, and more effective procedure.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

 

The soft-tissue diode laser that we use is carefully calibrated to trim or modify oral tissues without causing undue damage to surrounding tissues. Compared to traditional scalpel surgery, laser dentistry offers a number of significant benefits, including:

  • No need for sutures after your procedure
  • Faster, more comfortable recovery time
  • Significantly improved accuracy
  • Lower risks of infection
  • Little to no bleeding during your procedure

Learn how you can benefit from opting for laser dentistry for your soft-tissue oral surgery! To find out if it’s the right choice for you, call Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
