Gum Recontouring

Gums that remain inflamed and swollen over a period of time can become thick and fibrous in spite of good oral hygiene. This is a common problem for orthodontic patients and also for periodontal patients taking certain medications.

Removal of thick, fibrous tissue is a very simple procedure using the Waterlase laser and topical anesthesia. This procedure is easy to tolerate and heals rapidly with minimal discomfort.
