Lasers can be used for a variety of dental procedures. Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers can be used to specifically target soft tissue lesions or growths and remove them without disturbing healthy tissue. Bleeding is so well controlled with Lasers that sutures (stitches) are usually not needed. In addition, the removal of the tissue is so fast and painless that injections are usually not needed either. Lasers can be used for crown lengthening, tooth whitening, and for gum surgery to improve loose or diseased gum attachment to the tooth. Minimally invasive laser treatment, where indicated, can avoid more complicated surgical procedures
