Laser Procedures

The Dentists for Kids is one of the only pediatric dental offices in San Antonio, Texas, to offer laser dental treatments for procedures such as a frenectomy (tongue-tie or lip-tie release). Our skilled pediatric dentists utilize an advanced CO2 soft tissue laser to enhance the comfort, precision, and effectiveness of our laser treatments. Laser treatments offer several advantages over traditional surgeries, including a faster healing time following your child’s procedure. Please call us at 210-696-2563 to learn more about the advantages of laser dental treatment and to schedule your child’s appointment with Dr. Peter Gurr and Dr. Scott Jensen.

Laser dentistry involves the use of dental lasers to complete dental treatments more comfortably, quickly, and effectively. At our dental practice, we are dedicated to always providing you with the best possible dental care. Our pediatric dentists and orthodontist and dental team continuously update their education and our office to provide you with a more pleasant and efficient dental visit. We are proud to offer laser dental treatment to ensure that your dental experience is comfortable and positive.

Lasers can be used for a number of dental treatments. During your visit, our pediatric dentists and orthodontist may recommend laser dentistry to:

  • Frenectomy and other gingival procedures (Gingivectomy)
  • Treat cold sores and canker sores
  • Recontour the gum line

There are many benefits of laser dentistry. Many treatments completed with a dental laser are very comfortable and may not require the use of anesthetic. Dental lasers also shorten treatment time and healing time and decrease the risk of infection following treatment. In addition, lasers minimize bleeding both during and after treatment, and because they are very precise, we are able to treat the targeted area without affecting nearby healthy tissues.
