Laser Treatment in Wheat Ridge

We are excited to introduce the use of Laser for most of our soft tissue surgeries. Laser offers a variety of benefits over traditional scalpel surgery including:

  • Faster healing time:

Quite often, due to minimal invasive action and less trauma to the tissues, healing time is cut in half.

  • More effective and more long-term results:

Laser surgery allows for better healing and lowers the chance of scarring. Which also allows for much better long-term results, especially for Frenectomy cases.

  • Minimal Discomfort:

Laser treatment is less traumatic and causes little or no hemorrhaging(bleeding). As a result, the procedure tends to cause less discomfort during and after the treatment.

  • No sutures:

Since there is little to no hemorrhaging in the surgical site, we require no sutures. Which equals in more comfortable, faster, healing and no follow up visits to remove the sutures.

Procedures that we offer with laser:

  • Tongue tie and lip tie release- Frenectomy
  • Treatment of Oral Ulcerations like Aphthous ulcers or cold sores
  • Gingivectomy: We re-contour overgrown gums which may be irritated from causes such as, braces.
  • Soft tissue crown lengthening
  • Controlled bleeding for esthetic restoration cases
