What is a Soft Tissue Laser?

The Picasso Lite soft tissue laser is designed to replace the need for a scalpel. A highly concentrated beam of light energy removes soft tissue with unmatched precision. This leaves healthy tissue untouched. The noninvasive procedure can even eliminate the need for an anesthetic because laser dentistry is virtually pain-free.

The small laser fiber also cauterizes while it cuts to minimize the risk of bleeding and inflammation. Research shows it also kills over 99% of bacteria to significantly reduce the risk of postoperative infection. You’ll enjoy a less painful and shorter recovery process to restore a healthy smile quicker.

Overall, a soft tissue laser gives us better control during your treatment to minimize the risk of complications. This allows us to provide a higher standard of care by reducing any room for error.

What are the Benefits of Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry?

Many traditional dental treatments require a scalpel to remove soft tissue. While it’s an effective method, there is room for error and healthy tissue can experience trauma. Not to mention, sutures may be needed to close areas that have been cut. When compared to a scalpel and sutures, soft tissue laser treatment offers exceptional benefits, including:

  • Improves accuracy
  • Decreases the need for sutures
  • Reduces the need for anesthetic
  • Less invasive
  • Stimulates the growth of healthy tissue
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Less risk of bleeding
  • Decreases risk of infection
  • Kills harmful bacteria
