How Can Laser Therapy Improve My Oral Health?

There are many ways that laser dental procedures can improve your oral health, from helping cold sores heal to reducing symptoms of gingivitis. Laser therapy is particularly helpful for the treatment and care of certain soft tissue conditions.

We may recommend laser therapy for the following:

  • Reshaping overgrown or irregular gums
  • Reducing the pain and speeding up the healing process for certain mouth sores (including canker sores and cold sores)
  • Treating certain oral infections
  • Reducing the symptoms of gingivitis or periodontal disease
  • Removal of benign soft tissue lesions
  • To help return gums to proper form when restoring a tooth or implant

What are the Benefits of Treatment Using a Soft Tissue Laser?

When compared with traditional methods such as those using a scalpel, treatment with a soft tissue laser offers several advantages.

Advantages of laser therapy include:

  • Shorter healing time
  • Less bleeding
  • Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects
  • Reduced pain during and after treatment
