Some soft tissue lasers may also be used to treat sleep apnea, perform nerve regeneration, aid in dental implant recovery, remove benign tumors and perform teeth whitening treatments.
Using a Millennium Laser provides many benefits. For example, Millennium Lasers allow for better control during the procedure, giving you a more accurate and effective treatment. Lasers also give you a faster treatment time, reduce bleeding and risk of infection following the procedure, and can treat the targeted area without causing damage to any nearby tissue. Lasers also enhance your comfort — in fact, you may not even require anesthesia to receive your treatment, though anesthetic and sedation options are available for your use. Additionally, soft tissue lasers are very quiet, emitting only a soft humming sound rather than the loud sounds produced by dental drills and other tools.
One of the advanced technologies our periodontists may use when providing your treatment is a Millennium Laser. These lasers allow us to deliver procedures with greater accuracy, providing more effective care and minimizing your recovery time following treatment. Soft tissue lasers are a versatile tool and may be used in a variety of dental procedures, including:
- Periodontal treatments, including gingivectomy
- Crown lengthening
- Cold and canker sores
- Uncovering an impacted tooth
- Removing damaged gum tissue
- Recontouring the gumline
- Lesion removal
- Oral tissue biopsies
