Over the years, the introduction of dental lasers has decreased the trauma and invasiveness of oral surgery. Our dentists and team utilize a soft tissue laser to perform many periodontal procedures, including gum contouring. Because the laser uses a strong and focused light to trim tissue, there is no need for scalpels and stitches, and many patients report that they experienced minimal to no bleeding or swelling and enjoyed a rapid recovery after their procedure.
