Drs. McElhinney and Breha have mastered the use of the diode laser and include it in your treatment free of charge, should it be needed.
Diode laser treatment provides several benefits for patients receiving orthodontic care. By using a specialized diode laser, we are able to safely and effectively remove excess gum tissue in order to expose more of the tooth’s surface for cases which require ideal bracket placement, exposing impacted teeth, and finally, aesthetic gingival recontouring.
Your gum tissue serves as a “frame” for your teeth; orthodontic lasers are used to sculpt the gums around the teeth in a way that helps improve the overall appearance of your smile. The best part of laser treatment? In most cases, there is no need for needles! We simply apply a topical anesthetic to the gum tissue being treated so all you feel is the slight movement of the laser tip.
