Soft Tissue Laser Tampa

Faster, Gentler, & More Precise Dentistry

At Advanced Dental Associates, we use a soft tissue laser for a number of treatments involving your gums. The laser provides a more relaxing treatment than more traditional operations and leaves the patient with minimal postoperative symptoms or pain. If this is a treatment you would like to receive from our dentists, call 813-972-9077 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Justin Elikofer, Dr. Rodney Holcombe, or Dr. Sara Sheffield to learn more about dental lasers in Tampa.

Soft Tissue Laser Treatments

One of the advanced technologies our dentists may use when providing your treatment is a soft tissue laser. Soft tissue lasers allow us to deliver procedures with greater accuracy, providing more effective care and minimizing your recovery time following treatment. Soft tissue lasers are a versatile tool and may be used in a variety of dental procedures, including:

  • Periodontal treatments, including gingivectomy
  • Crown lengthening
  • Frenectomy
  • Cold and canker sores
  • Uncovering an impacted tooth
  • Removing damaged gum tissue
  • Recontouring the gumline
  • Lesion removal
  • Oral tissue biopsies

Some soft tissue lasers may also be used to treat sleep apnea, perform nerve regeneration, aid in dental implant recovery, remove benign tumors and perform teeth whitening treatments.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Using a soft tissue laser provides many benefits. For example, soft tissue lasers allow for better control during the procedure, giving you a more accurate and effective treatment. Lasers also give you a faster treatment time, reduce bleeding and risk of infection following the procedure, and can treat the targeted area without causing damage to any nearby tissue. Soft tissue lasers also enhance your comfort — in fact, you may not even require anesthesia to receive your treatment, though anesthetic and sedation options are available for your use. Additionally, soft tissue lasers are very quiet, emitting only a soft humming sound rather than the loud sounds produced by dental drills and other tools.
