Our Advanced Techniques

Lasers have been used for over two decades in dentistry and are suitable for multiple dental procedures, including soft tissue treatment. Laser dentistry generates little to no heat and is a far gentler form of oral surgery than traditional methods. Our lasers for soft tissue treatments can be used for procedures that would otherwise be performed with a scalpel, causing unnecessary pain. 

Here at Sound Bridge Dental Arts, Dr. Bloomquist is qualified to utilize soft tissue laser treatment for faster, minimally invasive treatments. We can use soft tissue lasers for the following dental procedures:

  • Periodontal therapy
  • Cold sore removal
  • Gum recontouring
  • Crown lengthening

Laser Dentistry Benefits

Lasers are used for a wide range of reasons due to their advantages, including:

  • Accurate
  • Virtually painless
  • Promotes healing
  • No chemicals
  • Most patients don’t need an anesthetic

Laser therapy can be appealing for patients if they feel anxious about treatment. After treatment, most laser therapy patients will experience reduced post-operative pain, gingival swelling, and discomfort.

Soft Tissue Laser Treatments

Dr. Bloomquist is qualified to use laser dentistry for periodontal therapy, cold sore removals, and gum recontouring. The healing stimulated by laser energy leads to a quick resolution with little to no discomfort, without the need for stitches. Dr. Bloomquist can remove any suspicious or bothersome bumps within a couple of minutes.
