Improve the health and look of your smile with the soft tissue laser

In soft-tissue laser surgery, interaction of laser light with the soft tissue provides a special approach to surgery. A highly focused laser beam vaporizes the soft tissue with the high water content. Laser can make very small incisions when the beam is focused on the tissue (focal spot size can be as small as =0.1 mm, but the most widely used in practice is 0.4 mm). When the beam is defocused, the intensity of the laser light on the tissue diminishes, and it can be used for cauterization of small blood vessels and lymphatics, therefore decreases post-operative swellings.

The Soft Tissue Laser Tools for Dental Treatment

The soft tissue laser is a useful tool which has shown reduced post-operative pain and faster, more efficient surgeries. It can be used to sculpt and remove gum tissue and doesn’t require any scalpel use or sutures which mean no painful recovery or tedious follow up appointments.

At laser dentistry, Ashton Avenue Dental Practice used the soft tissue laser tool for various dental treatments. Consult Claremont dentist on 08 9385 6677 to book appointment.
