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.

Laser therapy is commonly used for soft-tissue procedures such as gum contouring, frenectomies (removal of excess tissue between teeth or under the tongue), and treatment of canker sores and cold sores. It can also be used for cosmetic purposes, such as removing excessive pigmentation on the gums to enhance your smile.
Most patients report minimal discomfort during laser therapy treatments. The concentrated light energy targets the affected area without damaging surrounding healthy tissue, resulting in less discomfort and faster healing compared to traditional methods. Additionally, we use local anesthesia to further minimize any discomfort.
The length of a laser therapy treatment will vary depending on the specific procedure being performed. However, most treatments are relatively quick and can be completed in one office visit. For example, gum contouring may take less than 30 minutes, while treating a cold sore may only take a few minutes.
