Dental Laser for Gums
At Royal York Dental we use a soft-tissue laser for dental procedures, including gum shaping.
What is a Dental Laser?
A dental laser is a device that emits a single wavelength of light energy directed on soft tissue to treat decay, gum disease, or soft tissue disorders with precision and accuracy.
What is a soft-tissue laser?
A soft-tissue laser is a tool that can be used instead of a scalpel for gum shaping, also known as gum contouring procedures. While we want to preserve your smile, there are some instances where gum removal is necessary.
What are some reasons dentists might use a laser?
A soft-tissue laser may be used to reshape gums. Soft-tissue lasers are also used to treat gum disease, remove lesions, perform biopsies and help eliminate infection in gums. Because of the precision available through the laser, it can even be used for very precise control during oral surgery.
