Bailey Dentistry incorporates lasers into the practice of modern dentistry as well. Our soft tissue diode laser can easily remove inflamed gum tissue so that restorations can be performed in a dry, non-contaminated environment. Laser treatment is much less traumatic than simple scalpel excision, and it cauterizes the area as well, so that no post-operative hemorrhage occurs. Lasers allow quick, easy removal of gingival lesions as well. Frenectomies, removal of tongue ties, are now 5 minute procedures that heal within days, compared to past procedures that required traumatic incisions followed by suturing, which required weeks to fully heal.
