The Benefits of Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy

Improved Accuracy & Precision

Laser tools use extremely focused, precise beams of light to remove soft tissue from the gums, cheeks, and other areas of the mouth. They're much more precise than traditional tools, like scalpels, which enhances overall patient outcomes.

Dramatically Reduced Pain & Bleeding

The extremely high heat of soft tissue lasers cauterizes (seals) tissue, blood vessels, and nerve endings on contact. This means that soft tissue laser treatments are virtually pain-free, and your mouth won’t bleed as much during treatment. There’s also a reduced need for sutures after your surgery.

Faster Healing & Recovery Time

Since lasers are more accurate and precise and are less invasive than traditional dental tools, this adds up to a simpler, faster, and more comfortable recovery process after your procedure. Healing times after procedures like deep cleaning are dramatically reduced.

The Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy Treatment Process

Initial Consultation & Diagnosis

To begin, you’ll need to come in and see your dentist to discuss your oral health and see if soft-tissue laser therapy is right for you. Soft tissue laser therapy is often used to treat gum disease, to take biopsies, to reshape the gums, and for a variety of other purposes.

Frequently Asked Questions

No! Laser treatments are very comfortable and convenient. Plus, in most cases, you won’t need any anesthesia! Since laser dentistry does not involve physical contact with the tissue of your mouth, numbing agents aren’t usually required for patients. The laser pinpoint causes a cauterizing effect within the tissue, so there is typically very little bleeding after treatment. When patients receive anesthesia, they typically leave the office with that numb feeling still prevalent. With laser dentistry, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to work without that uncomfortable numb sensation following your appointment.

Absolutely. Dental lasers are approved by the FDA and have been found to be completely safe when used by a trained dentist. Because the laser tool conducts such a precise procedure, there is a smaller chance of bacterial infection. This minimally invasive treatment also causes little to no bleeding for patients. When undergoing laser treatments, your dentist will take precautions to ensure your safety, just as they would with any other treatment. Since laser tools emit a powerful light, they will give you special protective glasses or goggles to shield your eyes. Laser dentistry is safer and more comfortable than many other traditional procedures.

Since laser dentistry is still determined to be an elective treatment, most insurance plans do not cover laser treatments. It’s important to check with your provider to get a better understanding of your coverage and benefits. However, laser dental treatments are fairly comparable to other equivalent treatments, and because you may not need any anesthesia, they may be able to fit comfortably within your budget. The cost of treatment will vary based on your individual needs, so we recommend scheduling a consultation to get a more accurate cost estimate.
