Although laser treatments may sound like a big deal, they are actually simple, quick, and painless.
Most procedures do not involve an anaesthetic injection, but rather an application of topical anaesthesia to the outside of the gum tissue that needs treatment.
Healing time is very quick – usually, just a few days are required for the area to be completely back to normal – and bleeding during the procedure is almost non-existent.
Lasers target the treatment area with great precision in order to minimise or avoid damage to any nearby areas. The laser stops bleeding, seals nerve endings, and greatly reduces any post-treatment inflammation and associated discomfort. Additionally, lasers are wonderfully hygienic.
Common Procedures with Soft Tissue Laser
Common soft tissue procedures include:
Crown lengthening. This procedure reshapes both gum tissue and bone for healthier tooth structure, which helps with placing restorations on the teeth.
Treating tongue frenulum attachment. Those with a thick or tight frenulum (the fold of skin under the front part of the tongue that anchors to the mouth floor) may benefit from a laser frenectomy.
This treatment helps children whose restricted frenulum causes them to be tongue-tied, have difficulty breastfeeding, or have a speech impediment.
Removing soft tissue folds. Lasers can remove soft tissue folds from ill-fitting dentures, without pain or sutures.
Advantages of Using Lasers
Lasers are very adaptable, and the technology has advanced greatly over the last 20 years and keeps improving.
These developments have allowed lasers to become more effective and more flexible in our dental practice.
Some of the pros of soft tissue laser include:
- Less pain and a reduction in the need for anaesthesia
- Reduced anxiety in patients compared to using a dental drill
- Preservation of healthy tooth structure in treatment of tooth decay
- Reduced swelling and bleeding during treatments
- Faster healing
- Less chance of infection
