Our office has recently purchased a diode laser. This type of laser is able to painlessly and without bleeding remove excess soft tissue (gums). This can be very useful in placing braces exactly where they can be most effective.
Dr. Mehan has become certified by the World Clinical Institute of Lasers in this new technique. He feels that it will offer our patients more precise and efficient orthodontic care.
Gum tissue around a canine tooth exposed using the laser allows efficient placement of bracket.
Inflamed tissue due to poor oral hygiene is removed with the laser. Two weeks following treatment.
