This newer style of dentistry utilizes intense beams of light projected by a dental laser. Dental lasers can be used to perform a wide variety of treatments, including soft tissue shaping and removal. Dental lasers damage far less of the surrounding tissue than traditional cutting techniques which allows much less discomfort and pain for the patient. We use this technique for a lot of our uncovering implant procedures which allows for much less bleeding and faster healing times. A few other ways we can utilize the laser for our patients is reshaping soft tissue, biopsies, and tumor removals.
