Laser Surgery and Treatments

Lasers in dentistry have become very useful.  Our office uses a diode laser for several procedures including limited soft tissue surgery.  Advantages of laser surgery include less tissue damage, post-operative pain, quicker healing, and minimal to no bleeding during surgery.  Some other uses for a diode laser include:

  • Treatment of apthous ulcers (canker sores).  Very painful apthous ulcers can be easily treated with a diode laser without any anesthesia.  Patients experience immediate relief from pain and heal quickly once treated.
  • Treatment of incipient oral and lip herpes cold sores.  If treated early before the vesicles appear, laser treatment can stop the progress of the viral attach.
  • Correction of the "gummy smile".  This procedure is simple and greatly enhances the cosmetic appearance off patients.
