When you have low or uneven gums, it can be really frustrating. It can make you want to hide your smile when it looks like your gums are doing a disappearing act. You can also become extremely self-conscious. When your gums recede too far, you are headed for serious dental problems. There is nothing that you can do on your own to fix low or uneven gums. No matter how careful you are about taking care of your oral hygiene, problems with the appearance of your gums can still crop up. It’s out of your hands. Fortunately, our team at Lach Orthodontic Specialists can do something about it with a laser gingival recontour procedure.
What is Laser Gingival Recontouring?
When it comes to reshaping your gums, a simple laser gingival recontour procedure is an effective alternative. A laser is used to reshape your gums as needed. The beauty of a laser lies in the fact that it cauterizes your gums as they are being surgically altered. That means less downtime for you and less trauma to your gums. You will be given a local anesthetic before the laser is applied to your gums. It’s a much more preferable way to go than with a scalpel because a scalpel will mean more swelling and bleeding. With one visit that involves relatively minimal discomfort, you can be on your way, and your gum transformation will be complete.
What to Expect During Recovery from Laser Gingival Recontouring
Once your anesthesia wears off, your mouth will be tender and sore. You will want to take it easy when you go home. Be sure to follow our team’s recommendations when it comes to caring for your teeth and gums. Brushing will need to be a delicate process. Once your gums have completely healed, you will be able to enjoy the results of your laser gingival recontour procedure.
