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
