Understanding Laser Surgery in Oral and Maxillofacial Procedures

Posted on 2/15/2024 by Weo Admin
Photo Beaverton Oral Surgeons in Hillsboro, ORAs a patient exploring complex dental surgery, you may wonder if a cold steel scalpel or high-tech dental laser offers superior benefits for intricate oral tissue procedures in the trained hands of an oral & maxillofacial surgeon (OMS). Fortunately, advanced laser-based systems provide cutting-edge advantages.

More Exact Cuts and Guided Healing Process

The concentrated beam from a dental laser enables an oral surgeon to perform tissue removal and incisions with high precision in delicate mouth areas by using it as a scalpel of light. During a laser procedure such as a lip or tongue frenectomy, an OMS can precisely shape tissue while sealing underlying blood vessels for clean healing with less bleeding or sutures.

Unlike traditional scalpels, laser energy accelerates healing by decreasing swelling, inflammation, and infection when removing oral lesions or reshaping gum tissues. Compared to outdated methods still taught today, laser-based tools bring enhanced precision during surgery plus quicker, lower-risk recovery afterward.

Flexibility and Precision in Tight Spaces

The elegant, no-contact nature of laser light coupled with minute beam diameters further enables detailed treatments in confined intraoral spaces that are too tricky for steel tool maneuvering. This laser nimbleness lends access to benefits across dental implantology, gum disease management, and other intricate treatments involving a maze of nerves, vessels, and tooth roots where each micro-motion bears importance.

Improved Patient Experience and Faster Recovery

Research shows most patients report enhanced comfort during laser procedures and in the days following compared to scalpel surgery. This includes less bleeding and reduced need for sutures, medication, and post-operative precautions. The light energy also temporarily numbs during activation. Laser dentistry performed by experienced OMSs means patients enjoy a smoother procedure and swift recovery.

Consult Our OMS About Laser Options for You

If you have an upcoming oral surgery, ask our OMS whether laser-based techniques present advantages over traditional modalities for your situation. As technology expands, so do the options for patient-centered care. For many intricate tissue, biopsies, and regeneration procedures involved in modern oral rehabilitation, laser precision imparts unrivaled accuracy and healing capabilities, helping patients thrive after the procedure.
