Laser Treatment – An Alternative to Traditional Gum SurgeryConsidered an almost miraculous development, dental lasers provide a simple, often painless, and minimally invasive procedure for the effective treatment of gum disease. Because the process renders scalpels and sutures unnecessary, the healing process is usually quicker. The laser is safe and can actually help to increase bone mass that is often lost from gum disease. The doctor also uses the dental laser for cosmetic recontouring, treating canker and cold sores, and removing cysts or nodules on the lips, tongue, and gums.
Another amazing use of the laser is treatment of tongue-tie or lip-tie. In this case, the tissue securing the lip to the gums or the tongue to the base of the mouth is too tight, causing a variety of issues. The laser allows the doctor to trim this attachment without cutting, bleeding, or stitches.
