The Spectralase laser has added a whole new dimension to the services I offer my patients. Often times we finish a patients treatment but the esthetics could be improved if only the gingival contours were more pleasing. Patients would rarely choose to see a periodontist for micro-esthetic issues. Having the Spectralase diode laser has enabled me easily finish those treatments more esthetically. My patients are always pleased by the ease of the procedure and the results they see. I can also expose unerupted teeth when necessary, perform frenectomies, and obtain access to second molars for best bracket position. The scope of our services has broadened and my practice has benefited as a result.
