We are very pleased to announce the addition of the Beamer Soft Tissue Laser to our family of dental treatments. Dr. Jorgensen has completed many additional hours of continuing education classes in order to be able to bring this revolutionary treatment modality to our patients. The soft tissue laser uses a specific wavelength of light to accomplish many surgical procedures simply and painlessly; oftentimes without the need for local injection of anesthesia! Some of the treatments that can be performed with the laser used to be done with scalpel and sutures. The laser, however, eliminates the need for both. The laser keeps the surgical area nearly blood-free and no sutures are required. Healing time is much faster and much more comfortable. Some of the new procedures we are able to provide in-office include:
- Labial Frenectomy
- Gingival Recontour
- Reduction of Gingival Hyperplasia
- Soft-Tissue Crown Lengthening/Gingivectomy
- Removal of Soft-Tissue Lesions (Papilloma, Fibroma, for example)
- Exposure of Unerupted/Partially Erupted Teeth
Please ask Dr. Jorgensen or any staff member if you have any questions about these procedures.
