Soft tissue laser can be used in some procedures to create a less invasive process with minimal discomfort for the patient. Laser surgeries are as effective as traditional surgeries performed with a scalpel. Other than creating none-to-very minimal discomfort for the patient, with laser surgeries there is no bleeding and the gum tissue is sterilized as the laser travels. Soft tissue laser procedures that we offer are:
- laser cutterage – removal of dead inner tissue from a gum pocket
- laser gingivectomy – a minor surgery to remove a small amount of gum tissue around a tooth
- laser frenectomy – the removal of a fold of tissue or muscle connecting the lips cheek or tongue to the jawbone
At Dr. Sunny Yuen dental office, we’re always thinking about our patients’ health, comfort and well-being. Whenever laser surgery could be performed, Dr. Sunny Yuen will recommend it as the first treatment option because we know how beneficial and convenient it is for our patients.
