At Bay Smile Dental, we provides state-of-the-art Laser Dentistry for soft tissue procedures.
The laser is a revolutionary surgical tool that has been used in dentistry for over 25 years for various procedures. The safety and control that lasers provide allow dentists to perform precise procedures without worrying about damaging the tissue in your mouth. Thus greatly reducing postoperative pain and swelling.
Typically, your dentist will examine the tissue that surrounds your teeth. Using a laser, your dentist will gently reshape the soft tissue to give you the best aesthetic result. Lasers are gentle and non-invasive and often require little or no anesthetic.
Lasers allow dentists to perform procedures with more accuracy and with less damage to your gums. Dentists can provide their patients with the highest standard of care, performing many different functions at once. While gently shaping soft tissue, lasers will also seal off blood vessels and nerve endings. This prevents bleeding, decreases swelling and greatly reduces pain, all with little or no anesthesia.
Lasers can perform a variety of operations in dentistry, but they are not used for every procedure. Your dentist can determine what works best for you.
Dr. Harika performs various Soft Tissue Procedures with laser, to give you the perfect smile, you have always wanted.
Gingivectomy – This is where the dentist greatly shapes the excess tissue that surrounds the front of your tooth so that the tooth proportions are even and the smile line is aesthetically pleasing.
Troughing – This procedure requires your dentist to cut a thin line around your tooth, providing a gentle way for the final restoration to fit well and look good. The process is quicker, less painful and bloodless, compared to the traditional retraction cord system.
Frenectomy – Dentists perform this procedure to remove unwanted attachments that can cause speech impediments. It is performed in minutes and is the ultimate cure for patients who are “tongue-tied.”
Herpetic Lesions (Cold Sores) – Lasers are often used to prevent cold sores before they have a chance to break out. When you feel a sore developing, talk to your dentist and prevent the problem before it occurs.
Aphthous Ulcers (Canker Sores) – Canker sores are small shallow ulcers that appear in the mouth and often make eating and talking uncomfortable. Laser treatment can be used to cure canker sores. The problem is treated in seconds often before it causes pain.
