Surgical crown lengthening – scalpel / blade is used to cut the gum margin till a desired level. Its disadvantages –
2. Delayed healing
3. More postoperative pain
Laser crown lengthening – here a laser fibre is used to remove the desired level of gum tissue around the teeth. Its advantages –
1. No bleeding
2. Faster healing
3. Less or no postoperative pain
Step 1 : Painless computerised local anesthesia(STA) is given
Step 2 : Using a fibre optic laser tip gum tissue surrounding the concerned tooth or implant is removed till desired level in order to prepare the tooth for restoring.
Postoperative care :
Usually, this procedure will not require any medications. But for safety purpose we will prescribe you pain killers, if needed you can have pain killers.
