Laser Dentistry What to Expect
The gum line aesthetic plays an important role in the appearance and the health of your smile. Patients with receding gum lines are more susceptible to sensitivity, gum disease and even tooth loss. Gummy smiles can make it difficult to fit patients with dental restorations. The gum line, tooth ratio should be balanced for a beautiful and healthy smile.
Laser dentistry can contour the gum line with out the need for painful sutures used in traditional gum surgery. Laser dentistry is virtually painless and reduces the swelling and bleeding. Many patients are able to return to their daily routine shortly after treatment.
For some patients the frenum, or the flap of muscle tissue that connects the tongue to the base of the mouth, is too long, creating a tongue tie or lip tie. When the frenum extends too far down the tongue it may make it difficult to speak or eat. A frenectomy is a common procedure preformed to cut or loosen the muscle tissue, releasing the tongue or lip, allowing for a normal range of movement and function.
Most patients will receive an frenectomy as an infant or young child. However, it is never too late to perform this treatment. Using laser dentistry your Marr Family Dentist is able to detach the frenum, freeing the tongue. Laser dentistry eliminates the need for traditional frenectomy surgery. Laser frenectomy reduces downtime and promotes the natural healing of the tissue to reduce the risk of infection.
