DIODE LASER TREATMENT
For orthodontic patients, diode laser treatment has several advantages. Our orthodontist in North Miami Beach, FL, can safely and successfully remove extra gum tissue with a specialized diode laser, exposing more of the tooth’s surface for better aesthetics and function. Your gum tissue acts as a “frame” for your teeth, and orthodontic lasers are used to shape the gums over them to optimize your smile’s general appearance. Using lasers to cut or sculpt soft tissue when repairing common dental disorders is among the most exciting breakthroughs in dentistry technology. The diode laser is a versatile, accurate, and safe tool beneficial to our valued patients.
WHAT IS THE MOST BENEFICIAL ASPECT OF LASER TREATMENT?
In most circumstances, needles aren’t required! All you’ll feel is the small movement of the laser point after we apply a topical anesthetic to the gum tissue being repaired.
PERFECT PLACEMENT FOR A BRACKET
A laser could be used to remove extra tissue and expose enough surface of the teeth to install a bracket if your gums haven’t retreated sufficiently or if a tooth is erupting slower than planned. As an alternative to headgear, this can also be used to install TADs.
TEETH THAT HAVE BEEN AFFECTED
Teeth that haven’t erupted correctly through the gums are referred to as impactions. We can help a tooth erupt by applying laser treatment instead of waiting months for it to emerge on its own or referring to expensive surgical surgery.
HELP WITH CROWN AND BRIDGE PREPARATION
The diode laser is used to aid in preparing teeth for crowns or bridges. In addition, the laser helps us obtain more accurate imprints for better-fitting restorations by removing soft tissue.
HELP WITH IMPLANT PLACEMENT
The diode laser is useful in implant placement because it allows us to easily be removed tissue that has developed over the implant post so that we may obtain precise imprints for the final restorations.
GET RID OF LESIONS
The dental laser can also be used to easily remove tiny lesions, such as herpes simplex or other aberrant tissue from the mouth in order to check for cancer.
RESHAPING OF GUM
Excessive or irregular gum tissue can be reshaped precisely and non-invasively to frame the teeth properly. The laser aids in the treatment of gum disease by lowering bacteria and toxins in periodontitis and decreasing pocket depth. We can also utilize it to do frenectomy, which removes the labial frenum, which joins the inside of the upper lip to the granulation tissue above the two front teeth.
AESTHETIC GINGIVAL RECONTOURING
Your orthodontist may consider recontouring your gum line after your braces are removed to improve the looks of your smile. Aesthetic gingival recontouring is a technique that reshapes the gum line to expose more of your teeth, improving the looks of your smile. For example, to make the upper teeth appear longer, your orthodontist will utilize a laser to eliminate extra gum tissue surrounding them. In addition, if your gum line is irregular, cosmetic gingival recontouring might help you achieve a more balanced, symmetric smile.
