The use of lasers in dentistry is finally here! Dr. Evans’ soft tissue laser can be used for a variety of procedures. Lasers allow for very effective, conservative treatments to be attained. In some cases we are able to diminish or not use local anesthetics.
Indications for the use of a soft tissue laser include but not limited to:
- Contouring or evening gingival margins
- Improvement in the impressions of tooth preparations
- Removal of unwanted or excess gum tissue
- Removal of painful ulcers
- Implant exposure
- Draining of abcesses
