Laser Gum Lifts in Jacksonville, FL
For patients who have excessive gum tissue, teeth can appear stubby. What you may not know is that beneath that overgrown soft tissue, your teeth are just waiting to be revealed! If you have a gummy smile, Dr. Wagner might recommend a gum lift, otherwise known as a laser gingivectomy.
This simple cosmetic procedure can be performed with the state-of-the-art help of a soft tissue laser, which minimizes bleeding and hastens recovery time. We’ll talk with you about your options and what to expect during the procedure, discussing the outcome you want to achieve in particular. The day of your procedure, we’ll mark your gum tissue, make sure that you’re comfortable with anesthesia or sedation, and then precisely remove the excess soft tissue. Healing with the laser is immediate. There is little to no post-laser pain. Motrin or Advil usually suffices if there is any pain at all.
