What is it. Laser gum therapy is a laser that reshapes the position and architecture of the gum tissue.
Why we do it. The soft tissue laser can be utilized in many different ways. For gum disease or poor health conditions, the laser is used to remove tissue that traps bacteria around the teeth. Additionally, many oral lesions or ulcers can be treated with the laser in order to eliminate pain and speed recovery. Cosmetically, many individuals suffer from showing excessive or uneven amounts of gum tissue when they smile. Sometimes this is called a “gummy smile”.
What to expect. Laser gum therapy is painless and you can return to your work and regular activities immediately.
