Hand-held scalpels and drills are typically used for many dental procedures and they usually lead to anxiety and discomfort in patients.
Soft tissue Lasers are extremely helpful in many situations, including the treatment of periodontal disease and the removal of excessive gum tissue to create a beautiful smile. At Thornhill Square Dentistry, we rely on soft tissue lasers to treat canker sore ulcers in the mouth, destroy bacteria within gum pockets and reshaping gums to create healthy and beautiful smiles.
Any pain or discomfort that patients may experience is significantly minimized when using Lasers. Sometimes, even anesthesia is not required. Dental lasers are safe for children and adults alike. The conservative nature of laser treatment allows us to preserve as much healthy tooth and gum as possible and protect your natural smile. The chances of bleeding and swelling after a laser-assisted procedure are greatly reduced, and healing time usually is shorter, as well.
