Soft tissue lasers can now be used in a variety of dental treatments. Examples of this include:
- Treatment of gum disease
- Treatment of mouth ulcers
- Gum re-contouring
- Crown lengthening
- Gum de-pigmentation
- Treatment of peri-implantitis (inflammation surrounding dental implants)
Dental treatment with a laser is generally painless and without any associated noise or vibration. In addition, lasers reduce the need for stitches during surgical procedures as well as minimise post-operative discomfort, bleeding and healing time.
