Laser Dentistry – Louetta, TX

Precise, Comfortable Periodontal Care

For generations, dentists and other types of doctors have relied on scalpels to perform procedures that require precise incisions. But here at The Castleberry Center for Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, scalpels now often take a back seat to a soft tissue laser. Indeed, scalpels are no longer necessary for many procedures. On this page, you will learn what a soft tissue laser is, the benefits it offers, and what procedures are especially suited for it.

What Is a Soft Tissue Laser?

A laser is a highly concentrated beam of light. Lasers have been used in dentistry for a few decades, but only recently has their use become truly popular as more and more dentists see realize their benefits. There are a few different categories of lasers that are used in dental offices across the country, but the most common (and perhaps the most beneficial) is a soft tissue laser. It uses a super powerful and incredibly precise beam of light to create incisions in the soft tissues in the oral cavity, such as the gum tissue.
