The use of lasers has changed the face of orthodontics immensely. Soft Tissue Laser treatment by our expert orthodontists at Edina corrects and deals with excess gum tissue which can cause a person’s teeth to appear too large or too small.
There are numerous benefits to using lasers, like reduced bleeding and swelling, faster recovery, and less chance of infection.
People often say that your smile is the first thing they notice. A dazzling smile can transform your life by providing confidence and greater self-esteem.
Lasers provide great versatility with better accuracy, comfort and decreased treatment time. Soft Tissue Laser Treatment is an advanced technology that allows us to work with gum tissue, which is actually a “frame” for the mouth. We can literally “sculpt” your gums around teeth and give you a more pleasing appearance.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Soft Tissue Laser Treatment provides a way to re-contour or remove excess gum tissue that often makes a person look like their teeth are either too small or too large. Advantages of this treatment include: no need for a numbing injection, eliminating pain, patients heal more quickly, there is less inflammation and the process is far more comfortable than other solutions. The use of the laser also seals the nerve endings and eliminates bleeding.
This process can also help with the issue of impacted teeth, which is a common problem amongst teens referred to as impacted wisdom teeth. Impacted teeth can cause infections and even the misalignment of the jaw if left untreated. The use of lasers can provide a way for the teeth to still grow as they should into the mouth. In most cases, the procedure will be followed up with correction in the alignment of the teeth.
