Laser Gum Therapy
Doctors have used lasers for years to provide better care for their patients – like the LASIK vision correction laser treatment. Now, we can offer the benefits of advanced laser technology for your dental care with the ezLase and iLase laser.
No one wants surgery! But when surgery is required, conventional treatments utilizing a scalpel and stitches can cause a great degree of discomfort.
ezLase and iLase laser treatments provide patients with greater comfort, less bleeding, faster healing and better clinical results than conventional treatments.
The ezLase and iLase laser system is indicated to treat your gums or any other soft tissue in your mouth:
Improve “Gummy” Smile
The ezLase and iLase laser system improves the appearance of your smile by contouring or shaping the gums by safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
- Remove Traumatic Oral Growths
The ezLase and iLase laser system may be used to remove small “tags” called papillomas and growths called fibromas that result from cheek or tongue traumatic bite.
- Fix “Tongue Tie” or Prevent Gum Recession
Tissue connections that restrict the movement of your tongue or cause gums recession can be “released” with the ezLase and iLase laser. Patients with tongue tie will experience speech improvement after the ezLase and iLase laser treatment.
- Treat Gum Disease
Bleeding gums and gum recession are common signs of gingivitis and gum disease, caused by the presence of bacteria and inflammation inside the gums. The ezLase and iLase laser gum treatment is a painless procedure that removes inflammatory debris and infected tissue from inside the gums. Improved healing of the gum tissue follows after treatment along with proper oral care.
- Relieve the Pain of Cold Sores and Fever Blisters
The ezLase and iLase laser treatment provides immediate relief from painful cold sores and fever blisters after a single application. Your dentist or hygienist will provide required laser protective eyewear.
BIOLASE Technology developed the ezLase and iLase laser system, a diode laser that performs many procedures requiring minor oral surgery and gum treatments. Through its pen-sized handpiece, the ezLase and iLase laser system emits a concentrated light that precisely interacts with the areas to be treated in a low dose and safe manner. It can also provide temporarily relief of pain and inflammation simply by delivering therapeutic heat.
