Patients with oral health problems can benefit from dental laser treatments. Our office is equipped with the Odyssey® Navigator™ Soft Tissue Diode Laser and other advanced technologies. These help us perform the laser gingivectomy procedure and gum recontouring treatments with a high degree of precision. Dr. Vivek Amin or Dr. Tamara Strouth will tailor the treatment based on your individual needs so there is minimal trauma to surrounding tissues. These procedures are relatively painless and have minimal downtime.
Our laser dentist in St. Mary’s County may recommend a laser crown lengthening for patients with gummy smiles. This procedure involves removing extra tissue to expose more of the crown of the tooth, resulting in a bigger, better smile. The dental laser we use for this treatment minimizes bleeding and helps us precisely remove only the tissue we want to.
My pain was managed very well. It was a very positive experience for me. I mention pain because I’ve gone through quite a bit of dental work prior to coming here, and there was quite a bit of pain through those procedures. When I came to this facility I really had none. I had no issues at all. Recovery time was very quick.
If you have gum recession, an uneven gum line or a gummy smile, we can turn to a dental laser to reshape the gums for cosmetic improvement. The treatment typically takes about an hour and can be performed under local anesthesia. We can trim away excess tissue and reshape the gums to create a more attractive gum line. With laser dentistry, there is no need for scalpels and sutures so our patients experience a much faster healing time.
