Soft-Tissue Laser Treatments
With a soft tissue laser, we can provide treatment for these oral health issues:
- Gummy Smiles: A gummy smile, occurs when there is excessive gum tissue below the upper lip. We can safely treat a gummy smile, also known as excessive gingival display, with dental lasers. Lasers precisely contour the gums and remove excess gum tissue. This creates a more balanced smile.
- Tongue-tie and Lip-tie: Tongue-ties are marked by a band of tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth. A lip-tie is similar, but the band of tissue attaches the upper lip to the gums. Both tongue and lip-ties restrict the patient’s range of motion. Using a dental laser, we can free the tongue or lips by painlessly cutting the band of tissue.
- Gum Disease: With a laser, we can remove infected gum tissue from the mouth. This prevents the further spread of bacteria. For patients with gum recession, we recommend gum grafting. Gum grafting takes healthy gum tissue, typically from another part of the mouth. This gum tissue is then placed in areas affected by gum recession. The healthy gum tissue keeps the tooth in place and supports the patient’s overall gum health.
