Safe & Effective
We harness the power of advanced technology to bring about remarkable transformations. One such technology is our specialized diode laser, a tool that allows us to meticulously and securely remove excess gum tissue. The process is not only reliable and potent, but it also offers immediate results.
Frame Your Teeth
At Brodsky Orthodontics, we view your gum tissue as the ideal frame for your teeth. Our orthodontic lasers are skillfully used to sculpt the gums around your teeth, enhancing the overall appearance of your smile.
The beauty of laser treatment is its needle-free nature. We simply apply a topical anesthetic to the gum tissue being treated, so all you feel is the slight movement of the laser tip.
Aesthetic Gingival Recontouring
After the removal of your braces, the team at Brodsky Orthodontics may suggest recontouring your gum line to optimize the aesthetics of your smile. Aesthetic gingival recontouring is a procedure designed to reshape the gum line, exposing more of your teeth for a more appealing smile.
Our doctors use a laser to remove excess gum tissue around the upper teeth, making them appear longer. If your gum line is uneven, aesthetic gingival recontouring can also sculpt the gum line to produce a more symmetrical, balanced smile.
Impactions refer to teeth that haven't erupted properly through the gums. With laser treatment, we can assist with a tooth's eruption without having to wait months for the tooth to erupt on its own or referring you for an expensive surgical procedure.
You know those tiny bits of skin that connect your lips to your gums or your tongue to the bottom of your mouth? Those are called frenums. Sometimes, these frenums can be a bit too large or not in the right spot, and this can cause some issues with how your teeth and gums line up or even affect your breathing when you sleep. We perform a simple procedure known as a frenectomy to enhance your overall gum health and improve your breathing. The procedure is straightforward and designed to help you have the best possible orthodontic experience.
Ideal Bracket Placement
If your gums haven't receded properly, or if a tooth is erupting slower than expected, a laser can be used to remove excess tissue and reveal enough tooth surface to place a bracket.
