The safe procedure can be performed to do things like remove excess gum tissue or speed up tooth eruption and there’s no need for needles! Your orthodontist will apply a topical anesthetic to your gums to painlessly get the job done.

A Painless Finishing Touch for Smiles

Having a “gummy” smile can make you feel self-conscious and a lot of people believe there isn’t anything you can do about it. Enter, diode laser treatment. At Houston Orthodontic Specialists, we use the diode laser to remove excess gum tissue with precision, crafting the perfect frame for your teeth. We usually perform the procedure after you’re finished with braces or Invisalign® to give you the picture-perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of. The best part? It’s painless and we don’t need to use needles. The laser is gentle and we apply a topical anesthetic, so the only thing you feel is the slight movement of the laser tip.

We also use the diode laser for non-aesthetic reasons. When you have excessive gum tissue, it can get in the way of placing brackets for braces, TADs, and other appliances and the laser can help. Additionally, if teeth aren’t coming in as they should, we can use it to speed up the tooth eruption process.

Whatever the reason your smile requires diode laser treatment, our team has you covered.
