Lasers Make Gum Reshaping Quick and Comfortable

Our Boca Raton, FL and Coral Springs, FL orthodontists, Dr. Peter Wohlgemuth or Dr. Ira Rothstein will correct your uneven gumline or gummy smile with a dental laser. Before the advent of laser treatment, a scalpel was the usual tool for reshaping gums. Lasers offer many advantages, including:

  • Practically painless. Lasers remove tissue quickly and cleanly, causing only minor discomfort. With local anesthesia, you likely won’t feel a thing. Your gums may be a bit tender afterward.
  • Reduce chance of infection. Lasers cauterize tissue as our orthodontists work, so there will be very little bleeding and a much lower chance of infection occurring as you heal.
  • Speed up the process. Both the gum reshaping process itself and the healing period that follows are much quicker when a laser is used.

Both of our dentists, Dr. Peter Wohlgemuth or Dr. Ira Rothsteinare are active members of professional organizations like American Association of Orthodontists, Florida Association of Orthodontists and American Dental Association.

We Use Other Dental Technology for Your Care

Lasers aren’t the only high-tech tools we use in our Boca Raton, FL and Coral Springs, FL orthodontist offices. Others include:

    • 3D imaging, which gives us a much more comprehensive view of your mouth than traditional X-rays.
    • iTero® Intraoral Scanners, which let us use digital images instead of messy molding material to take impressions of your teeth.
    • suresmile®, a system for creating an orthodontics treatment plan using sophisticated software. Not only that, but a robot shapes the wires used in your treatment, which results in precise straightening and a shorter treatment time.

    To find out more about gum reshaping or other treatments, call Smiles by Dr. W and Dr. R at (561) 327-6775 or reach out to us with our online form.
