All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for dental procedures, the laser acts as an instrument to remove problematic tissue that it comes in contact with. This tool causes less pain and often reduces the need for anesthesia. Laser treatment is a terrifc alternative to drills, for those who may be sensitive to the use of a drill. Laser treatment minimizes bleeding and swelling during treatments, and may preserve more tissue as compared to alternative treatment options.
Our soft tissue laser treatment offers many benefits including:
Mouth ulcers are uncomfortable open lesions or sores in the mouth. They can be caused by several issues ranging from canker sores to gingivostomatitis to fever blisters, but they all the share the same discomfort of pain in your mouth. Most mouth ulcers heal with time, however, if necessary we can provide treatment to relieve symptoms through a gentle cleaning, topical antihistamines, corticosteroids or antacids.
