Laser Surgery

Precise dental care and less time in the chair.

What is Laser Surgery and how does it work?


Laser surgery is the future! It’s modern and advanced technology, and it’s FDA cleared for soft tissue procedures. The preciseness is notably better than that of traditional scalpel surgery, and the treated areas heal with minimal to no scarring. 


Laser technology has the unique ability to vaporize or erase soft tissue which we use to make incisions or to remove unhealthy tissue. It’s precise enough to remove miniscule amounts of cells at a time, and powerful enough to remove a large tumor. 


What is a Lightscalpel Co2 Laser?


The LightScalpel CO2 Laser is a cutting edge device that can be used in place of frenectomies otherwise known as tongue-tie. Using this machine allows our pediatric dentist in Staten Island to perform procedures faster and more comfortably for your child. 


Is Laser Surgery safe?


Our team has years of training and experience in oral surgery and laser surgery treatment and safety is always our number one priority. With the added precision over traditional scalpel surgery, along with the built in coagulating side effects of laser surgery it’s quite easy to see that it’s safer than previously established methods. 


Is Laser Surgery appropriate for my child?


The LightScalpel CO2 laser can perform a wide variety of surgical procedures. However at our pediatric dentist's office in Staten Island it is generally used to perform frenectomies. Schedule a consultation with us today to find out if your child is a candidate for laser surgery.
