Soft Tissue Laser Therapy
Today’s dental laser technology is making treatment gentler, quicker and safer for our patients. Our practice has invested in cutting-edge resources like the SiroBLUE Laser to provide expanded soft tissue therapies alongside of other routine dental care.
Advantages of Laser Dentistry
Soft tissue lasers minimise the invasiveness of routine treatments involving oral tissues. Additionally, applying the laser speeds up healing while reducing inflammation, allowing for faster recovery and minimal downtime. Lasers also reduce the risk of bleeding, allowing you to go back to your normal routine in practically no time at all.
Types of Laser Services Offered
Our SiroBLUE laser technology allows us to provide a variety of therapies including
Tongue and lip ties can significantly impact infants, toddlers and even older children. Not only do they cause speech delays but a severe enough lip or tongue tie can inhibit a baby’s ability to latch during breastfeeding. Often times they seem to be fussy, always hungry or feeding is uncomfortable for mum.
Laser lip and tongue tie correction (frenectomies) is a safe and efficient way to treat this condition in children of all ages. Results are immediate, allowing for more mobility in the lip and tongue for feeding and speech.
Do you have a ‘gummy smile’? Do more gum tissues show than teeth when you’re posing in photographs? Excessive gingiva can easily be reduced through a procedure known as a gum lift. With the SiroBLUE laser we can complete your gum lift in just one appointment for same-day results and practically no downtime. Numbing may not even be necessary.
Perhaps your gums are just slightly uneven, causing your teeth to appear atypically sized or shaped. Gum recontouring is similar to a gum lift and can complement most of our cosmetic dentistry services, giving you the perfect frame for your gorgeous new smile.
When a tooth is severely worn or broken down and needs a crown, it may be difficult to cover the tooth unless a larger surface area can be exposed. With the SiroBLUE laser, we can gently reduce the margin of the gum tissues to lengthen the height of the crown (the portion of your tooth visible above the gumlines). This step ensures a large enough foundation for a fixed crown or bridge, helping you preserve the tooth for several more years.
Peri-implantitis (the implant version of gum disease) is one of the biggest risks to implant success. Treating the gum tissues with a laser eliminates disease-causing bacteria and speeds up healing to promote a stable implant site.
Do you suffer from TMJ pain? Laser therapy is a safe and minimally-invasive treatment option for TMJ disorder and joint-related discomfort.
