Soft Tissue Laser
Dr. I. Costache & Associates – Your Bloor and Dufferin dentist offers soft tissue laser treatment for gums and soft tissue
At Galleria Dental we often us a soft tissue laser for precision and accuracy during dental treatments involving gums and soft tissue. Lasers are incredibly effective tools that allow us to pinpoint the exact areas of treatment without damage to any of the surrounding areas. The result is a minimally invasive and improved experience for our patients.
How We Use Lasers
Before using the laser, we provide you with special protective glasses, and then we may numb the area we’ll work on. We then sweep the gentle beam over the affected area. The narrow beam only removes a specific number of cell layers on each pass, so we have precise control over the procedure.
We are able to use lasers during a number of treatments including:
- Lesion removal
- Treatment of gum disease
- Removal of excess gum tissue
- Gum surgery
- Gum Recontouring (Gum Lift)
- Canker sore or venous lake treatment
Benefits to using dental lasers include:
- less bleeding during treatment
- reduced swelling
- faster healing times
We are proud to offer this technology that helps us to ensure our patients have a more comfortable in-chair and post-procedure experience. Please feel free to ask us about our dental laser on your next visit or through our ‘Contact Us‘ section.
