Our practice offers diode soft-tissue laser treatment to painlessly remove gum tissue. It is primarily used to uncover teeth that are partially or fully soft tissue impacted, thus allowing a bracket or band to be placed and treatment to be expedited. This procedure is also known as a canine (cuspid) exposure. In the past, patients would have to be referred to the oral surgeon to perform the canine exposure with a scalpel blade, however, with the precision of the soft-tissue laser we can remove excess gum tissue without any bleeding and shots rarely have to be given.
