Soft tissue dental lasers at Ken Caryl Dentistry allow us to perform a wide range of dental treatments on the soft tissues and gums. Soft tissue lasers can help reduce bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling, and the need for pain medication when treating the gums and oral soft tissues. In addition, dental lasers decrease the risk for infection following the treatment, and stitches are not needed for treatments performed using a soft tissue dental laser.
Soft tissue lasers work by using the energy from a laser beam to kill disease-causing bacteria while removing infected gum tissue. Dentist in Littleton, Dr. Herzberg can also use a soft-tissue diode laser to re-contour an unappealing gumline, remove a lip or tongue tie, and treat cold sores and canker sores.
