Soft Tissue Laser at McKinney, TX
Laser technology continues to transform many procedures in healthcare. Once the subject of sci-fi movies, lasers now clearly provide benefits for mainstream treatment in medicine and dentistry. Shorter procedures, less discomfort, and quicker healing are just a few of the benefits of modern lasers.
The soft tissues of the mouth cover about 30 square inches of surface area. Annoying lumps or bumps may need removal with any unusual patches of tissue requiring further microscopic analysis. Traditionally, a surgical procedure involving incisions and sutures would be required to produce a biopsy sample. Today, a pen-shaped wand allows Dr. Kim to remove suspicious or bothersome bumps within a couple of minutes. The healing stimulated by laser energy leads to rapid healing and little to no discomfort, without the need for stitches.
