Soft Tissue Treatment with Laser Technology
For those with soft tissue concerns, we offer gentle and effective treatment with our PerioLase® dental laser. By using a dental laser instead of traditional scalpels, we can provide minimally invasive treatment that is virtually painless. Dr. Ardeshir “Eddy” Raghian is a board-certified periodontist, so he has the extra training and education to provide effective care to your soft tissue as well as bone.
The frenum is a tight piece of tissue that holds the tongue or lip in place. In some instances, this may be too tight and cause discomfort, difficulty eating, speaking or even wearing dentures or orthodontics. If you are tongue- or lip-tied, we offer gentle laser frenectomy treatment. Our dental laser can sever the frenum to free the lip or tongue without the need for scalpels or sutures and with minimal bleeding. The process is quick and virtually painless, usually not requiring sedation.
This treatment can be performed to rid gums of disease and infection or to aesthetically reshape the gum line. We use our dental laser to carefully remove the targeted gums, which prevents the need for scalpels. Our laser is incredibly precise and is able to reshape the gums with minimal healthy tissue lost. Our gingivectomy treatment causes minimal discomfort and typically allows for quick healing.
A venous lake is a blue blood-filled lesion that forms on the lips, most frequently the bottom lip. Our dental laser is one of the most effective treatments for removing this lesion without any scarring. This treatment usually only requires one visit and takes very little time to perform, with results seen about three to four weeks after the procedure.
