The perfect and painless way to a beautiful smile and a proper functioning set of teeth is through the Diode Laser Treatment. In this treatment, the excess gum tissue is removed safely and effectively by using a specialized diode laser in order to expose more of the tooth’s surface. Since your gum tissue serves as a ‘frame’ for your teeth; orthodontic lasers are used to sculpt the gums around the teeth in a way that helps improve the overall appearance of your smile.
The best thing about the Diode Laser Treatment is that there is no need for needles! That means you do not have to suffer any pain. Our dentists apply a topical anesthetic to the gum tissue being treated so all you feel is the slight movement of the laser tip.
Ideal Bracket Placement
Sometimes, your gums might not have receded properly, or a tooth is growing at a slower rate, which might cause problems in placement of brackets or TADs. In such cases, the laser treatment can be used to remove excess tissue and reveal enough of the tooth surface to place a bracket, or TADs as an alternative to headgear.
When your teeth have not erupted properly through the gums, they are referred to as impactions. With our laser treatment, we can speed up the eruption of your teeth without having to wait months for its natural eruption. Sometimes, this even saves you from expensive surgical procedures later on.
Gingival Recontouring for Improved Aesthetics
After you have had your braces removed, we recommend recontouring your gum line to maximize the aesthetics of your smile. For a brilliant smile, the Aesthetic Gingival Recontouring is a procedure that reshapes the gum line and exposes more of your teeth.
Depending on the case, your orthodontist will use laser to remove excess gum tissue around the upper teeth to make them look longer. Aesthetic Gingival Recontouring can be used for uneven gum lines by molding the gum line to produce a more symmetrical, balanced smile.
