Soft Tissue Laser - Advanced Dental Technology in Daly City, California

One such technology is using a soft tissue laser to aid in delicate procedures around the gums and cheeks.

Traditionally to recontour or reposition gums, excise tissues, and more have required the usage of sharp surgical blades to create clean incisions and allow gums to heal unhindered or usage of an electrosurgery device to control bleeding.

With a soft tissue laser such as the Picasso Laser by AMD, we can use delicate feathering motions to achieve the same goals with little to no anesthesia and faster healing. The laser utilizes light energy to both cut and cauterize tissues at the same time. The esthetic results are also much more stable than traditional surgical methods because of the decreased swelling immediately after.

One of the most common procedures we perform is the reduction of a poorly positioned frenum to reduce recession and allow our muscles more freedom of movements.

Laser Dentistry

Frenums are folds of tissues that attach the lips and muscles to the soft tissue of our jaw bones. When frenums are located too close to our teeth (aka “high” frenum attachment), they can cause recession of the gums, limit the movements of our lips, and even cause gaps in our teeth to develop. This can be said of frenums locate on the front of the teeth and for frenums that attach to high on the tongue.

Other common applications of our soft tissue laser include

  • Excisional biopsy of soft tissues
  • Control of bleeding
  • Cosmetic gum recontouring
  • Decontamination of gingival areas

Kathie T.

Julia is the best dental hygienist! She made me feel very comfortable. She’s friendly, professional and knowledgeable. My teeth felt super clean and smooth after. I highly recommend her!

For 14 years I have neglected check ups. In one cleaning, Julia has changed how my mouth feels, tastes, enjoys and also taught me how to proper take care of the calcium shells. I’m healthier. I’m happier. I’m hopeful that I can keep these mouth stones for longer than I am intended to! Don’t be scared. It’s worth investing in yourself.

Love the staff here and the dentist/dental assistants are always so courteous and helpful. They also provide a television/Netflix for you to watch while you are having a procedure done, this is very helpful, if like me, you get nervous with dental work.
