Laser Dentistry Keego Harbor, MI

Did you know that there is a more comfortable alternative to gum surgery? Dental lasers use targeted light and heat to cut gum tissue with minimal bleeding or discomfort. Dr. Anthony Yaldo uses a diode laser to treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry services in our Keego Harbor, MI, dental office can benefit patients who require treatment for tongue-tie, lip-tie, gum disease, and a “gummy smile.” Laser dentistry can maintain a patient’s gum health and prevent the spread of dental problems like periodontitis. Dental laser allows Dr. Yaldo to implement many general dentistry treatments without discomfort or pain.

Benefits of Dental Lasers

Laser dentistry offers many advantages to patients. Dental lasers:

  • Do not require sutures
  • Offer minimal pain and discomfort
  • Sterilize gums
  • Allow our dentists to provide efficient care
  • Have a low risk of complications
  • Offer precise treatment
  • Minimize bleeding 

Dental lasers are safe for young children, especially those with tongue or lip ties. A tongue tie occurs when a band of tissue tethers the underside of the tongue to the mouth. Lip tie occurs when the gums are connected to the tissue inside the lips.

We can cut and contour the soft tissue, including the gums, using a dental laser. A gingivectomy removes gum tissue to show more of the teeth or to remove diseased tissue. “Gummy smiles” occur when excessive gum tissue is over the top teeth or the bottom of the lower teeth. Contouring the gums reveals more of the teeth for an aesthetically pleasing result.

Patients with gum disease benefit from a gingivectomy, where we remove diseased gum tissue from the smile. Traditional gingivectomies use dental tools, which can affect the surrounding teeth and gums. Dental lasers target the tissues without impacting or damaging other areas of the mouth. 

A frenectomy is a procedure that treats tongue ties and lip ties. We can address tongue and lip tie for patients of all ages, including infants. Infants can experience problems breastfeeding and teething. Addressing these problems can make eating and speaking more comfortable for younger patients as they grow. We use local anesthetic and dental lasers for the safest treatment possible. The laser will gently remove or cut tissue with minimal bleeding or discomfort.
