Laser Procedures

 
 
 
Patient had a wart on his tongue that had been there for several years and was unattractive and annoying to the patient
Lesion was approximately 3x3mm in size
Dr. Wiedower removed the lesion with his diode laser and the patient reported his tongue feels completely normal again

 Before: girl with very tight frenum attachment between her lower teeth.

 Ten days after laser frenum detachment.
 Three weeks after laser frenum detachment. Completely healed.
8 year old female had a very tight frenum attachment between her lower anteriors. If left this way, her gums will most likely recede causing an unhealthy gingival attachment 
Using a diode laser, Dr. Wiedower performed a frenectomy in the office with local anesthesia alone.
3 weeks after the procedure the site has almost completely and the tissue already looks healthier.
