Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Lasers can be used for many soft tissue procedures. Lasers are used because of the precise control they afford the dentist and the comfort they provide to patients. Lasers perform many functions at once. Not only can a laser remove tissue but it can also be used to seal blood vessels and nerve endings, reducing bleeding and postoperative pain and swelling. Dentists and patients also appreciate that many times a laser may be used with minimal or no anesthetic.
