Laser therapy in dentistry provides patients with a more comfortable dental treatment experience. Using a laser, Dr Donohue is able to deliver a precise treatment that is more comfortable, quicker, and provides more stunning results.
Benefits of laser therapy
There are several benefits to receiving a laser therapy dental treatment.
- Recovery time is much quicker than with traditional gum treatment methods.
- Treatments are very comfortable.
- There is less potential chance of bacterial infection because laser treatments are so precise.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Soft tissue lasers, like the kind used by Dr Kristen Donohue, can be compared to "sculpturing of the gums". Sometimes there can be excessive gum tissue or the gums can appear uneven, a soft tissue laser is a painless way to modify this tissue and enhance your teeth. This is a hallmark of Dr Donohue's cosmetic dental care and makes her work look more natural in a non-invasive way.
Removing oral lesions for biopsy and releasing the tight ligament under the tongue (tongue-tied) or around the lips are also considered laser dentistry treatments.
