Innovative Laser Dentistry Techniques for Optimal Results
Laser Gum Surgery
Patients diagnosed with periodontal disease do not have to undergo painful surgery or wait weeks to see results. With laser gum surgery, we can treat infected tissues in a single visit and do not need to cut away tissue. Dr. Lee simply passes the laser device over the tissue to kill bacteria and the gums heal rapidly on their own. Laser treatments reduce periodontal pocket depth, which improves the health of your gums in a very short period of time.
Gummy Smile Treatment
Are you self-conscious about having a gummy smile? We use an innovative laser dentistry technique to reshape the gum line and can also reposition the lips to create a beautiful smile. This procedure is less invasive than traditional surgery, which means you can enjoy results with minimal pain and discomfort.
If the bone and gums have been destroyed because of periodontal disease, we can pass the laser over hard and soft tissues to prompt the regeneration process. This procedure is ideal of patients with receding gums or a significant level of bone loss.
A gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that can be performed with a laser to minimize bleeding and trigger the natural healing response. Laser gingivectomy procedures remove infected gums and excess tissue. We can also use the laser to reshape the gums to improve your smile after gum disease.
Dr. Lee is among the few dentists in the area to use a diode laser to manage pain during treatment. Certain wavelengths of the laser have proven to be very effective for treating TMD and joint-related pain.
