The use of laser technology in the dental chair is very advantageous for certain situations. When there is a specific area that needs to be removed or trimmed, Kneib Dentistry uses the DEKA Laser to focus on a precise area of soft tissue. Especially when there cannot be any damage to the surrounding area of the target, the laser is perfect for the job. The technology provides patients with precision treatment that may minimize pain and recovery time.
The application of lasers in dentistry opens the door for dentists to perform a wide variety of dental procedures they otherwise may not be capable of performing. Dentists using lasers in dentistry have become adept at incorporating the state of the art precision technology into a number of common and uncommon procedures.

Which laser surgery procedures are cosmetic vs. a part of regular or restorative dental treatment?
Laser surgery procedures that are considered to be cosmetic dental care include contouring to address gummy smiles. Crown lengthening treatments do double duty: they can not only expose healthier bone structure but also provide a stronger foundation for restorations. Tongue and lip tie releases are a treatment for babies and young children which can reduce difficulty breastfeeding for mother and child, digestive issues, and discomfort. This release is not considered cosmetic.
