Soft Tissue Laser

Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is the latest advancement in dental technology, treating a wide range of dental and cosmetic problems from tooth sensitivity and gum disease to improving a “gummy smile.” At Gulf Coast Dental, the lasers we use are an alternative to the common hand-held scalpel, drills and other dental implements. These lasers direct an invisible energy beam onto problem areas and allow us to efficiently treat decayed teeth, enamel and gums.

Soft Tissue Laser

Soft tissue lasers are used to safely remove soft tissue, such as excess gum tissue. The soft tissue laser can also be employed to destroy bacteria in gum pockets to prevent infection and allow the tissue to return to a healthy state. The soft tissue laser enables our dentists to treat our patients with extreme accuracy and sometimes eliminates the need for stitches.

Another benefit of laser dentistry is that it minimizes the pain most often associated with dental procedures, meaning more comfort for our patients. Clinical studies show that approximately 96% of all patients require no anesthesia when lasers are being used during dental treatments. Dental lasers have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and are safe for both adults and children.

What Is Laser Dentistry?

A dental laser is a small beam of incredibly focused light. This light offers precision control during dental procedures. The tissues inside your mouth are incredibly delicate and soft, needing the most precise treatment when being operated on. Lasers have been used in dentistry for years and are a minimally invasive way to receive the dental treatment that you need at the lowest pain level possible.

Here are just a few of the treatments that soft tissue lasers are applied to in dentistry:

  • Soft tissue surgery
  • Periodontal procedures
  • Implant recovery
  • Aphthous ulcers
  • Frenectomy
  • And more!

Let our dental team work with you to decide if soft tissue lasers are appropriate for you.

The Gulf Coast Dental Difference

When it comes to professional care for your teeth and gums, turn to the team at our practice. Without a precise laser being used by a professional dentist, you run the risk of increased bleeding and swelling as well as damaged nerve endings in your mouth. Don’t go to just anyone for your dental needs, call on Gulf Coast Dental today!
