Lasers have revolutionized medical and dental practices across the globe. To provide comfortable, state-of-the-art dental care, Dr. Swathi uses a soft tissue laser, the EZ Lase by Biolase, for many procedures. In some cases, anesthesia injections prior to a laser procedure are not required. Laser gum surgery requires no stitches because as the beam cuts, it also seals. Many patients report a fast recovery after laser surgery, as well.
Our dental laser can reduce excessive gum tissue, called a gum lift, to reveal more tooth structure for a bigger, bolder smile. We also use the laser to treat damaged gum tissue in periodontal therapy. When gum tissue needs to be removed for crown placement, we use the laser for crown lengthening. In addition, the soft tissue laser can take biopsies and stop fever blisters or cold sores.
If you have gum disease, Dr. Swathi can use our soft tissue laser to remove bacteria and diseased gum tissue. Instead of traditional scalpel and suture gum surgery, we use our comfortable, quick EZ Lase dental laser to treat periodontitis. The laser removes diseased tissue, while promoting healing. Your body will naturally produce new, healthy tissue to support your teeth. Because our dental laser uses pinpoint precision to target areas of concern, healthy tissues remains unaffected.
