Laser Treatment for Gum Reconturing
Healthy gum tissue is the foundation for tooth vitality and a beautiful smile. Your smile-line is a combination of the shape and alignment of your teeth and the relationship of your teeth with your gum tissue. A variety of factors may lead to the gum tissue either receding from or encroach upon your teeth. When your gums pull away from your teeth, they create the appearance of long, skeletal teeth and a "toothy" smile. When your gums encroach on your teeth, it can create an effect known as a "gummy" smile, where your teeth appear too short. Laser Gum Reconturing is the latest corrective technique used to achieve a perfect smile.
Laser Gum Recontouring Procedure
The process involves using a powerful dental laser to simply remove any excess tissue and sculpt the remaining gum to the desired shape and size to enhance the appearance of teeth. This surgery used to be carried out with a scalpel, which made it a great deal more complicated. The new laser technology means that recovery times are reduced because blood vessels are cauterized during surgery. The intense heat of the laser also prevents any post-procedural infection occurring and reduces blood loss.
Laser gum contouring is a straightforward and relatively painless procedure offered by most cosmetic dentists. It can usually be performed within an hour and requires no extensive preparation.
Benefits of Laser Gum Treatment
We at Mahindra's offer laser gum treatment to our patients since they have numerous advantages over traditional techniques such as:
Less Pain: The laser causes less pain and discomfort than traditional surgical techniques, and thus the need for sedation dentistry or local anesthetic is vastly reduced. With laser gum treatment, many of our patients are able to undergo treatment without requiring pain relief of any kind.
Reduced risk of infection: Laser sterilizes the surgical field while it is working
Faster Recovery: The precision afforded by laser gum treatment means that surrounding tissues are left untouched, and the affected areas are treated in a more refined, more effective manner. This allows the patient to experience less post-operative discomfort and recover quicker.
Reduced Bleeding: During a typical gum treatment, there is a small amount of blood loss as a result of the sensitive nature of the soft tissues of the gums; with laser gum treatment, bleeding and swelling are both reduced and kept under control.
