At Oakton Family Dentistry, our dentists can use our soft tissue laser for a number of things. A soft tissue laser can be used to remove the bacteria that causes and complicates gum disease and remove excess tissue to improve the look and health of your gums and give your smile an even and more aesthetic appearance. The laser is also perfect for removing a tissue sample for a biopsy or treating cold or canker sores.
Our soft tissue laser has a number of advantages. Laser dentistry can shorten your time in the dental chair and can speed your recovery time. By using the lasers, the need for sutures is often eliminated following dental surgery, and there is often less bleeding. Laser dentistry can also reduce the risk of infection and treatments and may not require the use of anesthetic. Lasers are extremely precise and can minimize the impact your treatment will have on the surrounding tissue.
