Receive More Efficient Treatments With Soft-Tissue Lasers
Soft-tissue lasers are a trusted technology that can be used to treat various oral health issues at Tracey Tabor Williams DMD in Indianapolis. A soft-tissue laser produces a highly concentrated beam of light that can manipulate the soft tissues in the mouth with minimal discomfort and bleeding.
How do soft-tissue lasers work?
A laser sends a beam of light energy into the affected area. The heat produced by the laser can be maneuvered to make very small precise incisions.
What oral issues can soft-tissue lasers correct?
Soft-tissue lasers can be used in a variety of treatments, such as decay, periodontal disease, infection, draining of an abscess, treatment of cold sores and mouth ulcers, and recontouring of the gum line. They can also be used to reduce bleeding by cauterizing small blood vessels.
What are the benefits of using soft-tissue lasers?
When soft-tissue lasers are used, they can reduce recovery time and offer less post-operative discomfort. Soft tissue laser beams provide a natural sterilization effect by evaporating bacteria, viruses, and fungi, which can reduce the need for antibiotics. These lasers can also decrease post-operative pain by sealing nerve endings.
Are soft-tissue lasers safe?
Yes! Soft-tissue lasers are very safe, though there is some minor risk of tissue damage if the laser is not used correctly. Our dentist at Tracey Tabor Williams DMD will do everything to ensure that soft-tissue laser treatments are performed safely and accurately.
