Laser Gum Surgery
When feasible, a laser may be utilized to expose tooth structure. The procedure involves the use of light energy to remove the desired amount of gum tissue without contacting bone. This results in adequate crown length and a more aesthetic smile.
An individual’s tongue movement can be restricted by a lingual muscle attachment adversely affecting speech or creating spacing between teeth. An option to correct this condition is using a laser to release the muscle constriction allowing the tongue to proper movement.
Laser Frenectomy - Lip
A maxillary anterior frenectomy is recommended when a muscle attachment contributes to tooth separation or restricted lip movement. An option to correct this condition is using a laser to release the muscle constriction allowing the lip adequate movement and orthodontic reposition to close the space.
