Soft Tissue Lasers

South Side Chicago Dentist

The gums are the foundation for a healthy smile, and caring for them properly is an important part of sustained oral health. Your dentist and team are dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care for all surrounding dentistry patients. Soft tissue lasers provide high-quality, non-invasive periodontal therapy treatments. This sophisticated laser allows for exceptional precision, and can be used for a wide range of dental procedures.

Benefits of Soft Tissue Lasers

Soft tissue lasers are a versatile dental technology that can be used for a number of procedures. Patients who suffer from periodontal disease can receive laser treatment to eliminate bacteria and promote the growth of healthy tissue. In addition, the laser can be used for teeth bleaching, crown lengthening, laser-assisted flap surgery, and more.

Unlike conventional treatments, which require cutting and sutures, the soft tissue laser allows for effective treatment without any incisions. This unique tool uses a micro-pulsed diode laser, which creates minimal stress on the gums and reduces both procedural and post-operative discomfort. This soft tissue laser simultaneously treats soft tissue and seals blood vessels and nerve endings, minimizing any swelling or bleeding, and drastically reducing recovery time.

Some other benefits of the soft tissue laser include:

▪ Pain-free procedures
▪ No anesthesia required
▪ Fewer instances of scarring
▪ Generation of new, healthy gum tissue
▪ Reduced risk of infection
▪ Faster healing time

With the soft tissue laser, patients who have put off treatment due to fears of discomfort can receive the treatment they need to get started on the path toward positive oral health.
