The thought of oral surgery and periodontal care may seem daunting. Laser dentistry utilizes a highly-focused beam of light to perform a wide variety of treatments and procedures. Laser therapy can be used in place of more invasive surgical procedures for more comfortable, efficient, and cost-effective treatment for our patients.

The Benefits of Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy
Improved Accuracy & Precision
Laser tools use extremely focused, precise beams of light to remove soft tissue from the gums, cheeks, and other areas of the mouth. They're much more precise than traditional tools, like scalpels, which enhances overall patient outcomes.
Dramatically Reduced Pain & Bleeding
The extremely high heat of soft tissue lasers cauterizes (seals) tissue, blood vessels, and nerve endings on contact. This means that soft tissue laser treatments are virtually pain-free, and your mouth won’t bleed as much during treatment. There’s also a reduced need for sutures after your surgery.
Faster Healing & Recovery Time
Since lasers are more accurate and precise and are less invasive than traditional dental tools, this adds up to a simpler, faster, and more comfortable recovery process after your procedure. Healing times after procedures like deep cleaning are dramatically reduced.
The Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy Treatment Process
Initial Consultation & Diagnosis
To begin, you’ll need to come in and see your dentist to discuss your oral health and see if soft-tissue laser therapy is right for you. Soft tissue laser therapy is often used to treat gum disease, to take biopsies, to reshape the gums, and for a variety of other purposes.
Treatment With Soft-Tissue Lasers
Next, just come to our office as scheduled for your appointment. Sedation and numbing are usually not needed when using soft-tissue lasers, but may be used for your comfort. Your dentist will follow your surgical plan precisely using our laser tools, ensuring the best results.
Healing & Recovery
After your appointment, you’ll be sent home to rest and recover. Usually, you can get back to your normal routine after just a day or two. However, you should make sure to follow any post-operative instructions provided to you by your dentist.
