Regarded as some of the best prosthodontists in Manhattan, our dentists utilize a cordless diode laser for a wide range of gum contouring and soft tissue procedures (gum surgery). By using a diode laser, these procedures can be performed with less bleeding and better healing than more conventional treatment methods. Diode lasers are also very useful in optimizing cosmetic and restorative procedures, such as the application of porcelain veneers, fillings, and dental crowns.

Laser Dentistry Procedures

The exact application of a dental laser will depend on the type of procedure your prosthodontist is performing. Typically, your mouth will be numbed with local anesthetic and the laser will be utilized to appropriately treat the designated tooth (teeth) or soft tissue. If you are receiving soft tissue treatment, there is usually little if any bleeding due to the cauterizing effects of the laser. Laser treatment is usually quick and virtually painless compared to more conventional treatment methods. For more specific information about the laser procedure you are considering, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our prosthodontists. During this appointment, your prosthodontist will perform a thorough oral examination, discuss your concerns and goals, and develop a treatment plan that may include use of a dental laser. He can explain the procedure step-by-step so that you know what to expect from your treatment.
