What is tissue surgery?
Tissue surgery is comprised of those surgical treatments we employ to take care of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth. Generally, tissue surgery involves removing damaged or diseased gum tissues in order to keep your smile healthy and bright. We offer minor soft and hard tissue surgeries as part of our effort to meet all of your dental needs. To help us in offering gentle, effective tissue surgery in Seattle, Washington, Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta utilizes dental lasers.

What are dental lasers?
Dental lasers use a highly focused laser beam, often with a high water content, to vaporize and seal off tissues and blood vessels. There are many benefits to using dental lasers. During surgery and treatments, dental lasers allow our experienced dentist to work with increased precision and efficiency. This helps us minimize bleeding, pain, and swelling during and after treatment. Compared to traditional surgical methods, dental lasers are as minimally invasive as possible, making small incisions that heal quickly.

We utilize dental lasers at Lake City Way Dental Center to help you have positive experiences each time you visit our office. If you want more information about the benefits of dental lasers, we encourage you to contact our dental office today. We hope to hear from you soon!
