Why iLase™ Treatment?

No one wants surgery! But when surgery is required, conventional treatments utilize a scalpel and stitches, and they can cause a great degree of discomfort. For this reason, Dr. LeeAnn Hatfield employs a more efficient, safe, and timely service. iLase™ laser treatments in Greer, South Carolina, provide patients with greater comfort, less bleeding, faster healing, and better clinical results than conventional treatments.

What Treatment Can Be Done With The iLase™?

The iLase™ laser system at Hatfield Cosmetic & Family Dentist can be used to treat your gums or any other soft tissue in your mouth. It can be used to:

  • Improve a “gummy” smile: The iLase laser system improves the appearance of your smile by contouring or shaping the gums. It does this by safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
  • Remove traumatic oral growths: The iLase laser system can remove small “tags” called papillomas, and growths called fibromas. Many of these forms as a result from a traumatic cheek or tongue bite.
  • Fix “tongue tie” or prevent gum recession: “tongue tie” is caused by issue connections that restrict the movement of your tongue. This condition, as well as gums recession, can be treated with the iLase laser. Patients with tongue tie often experience a speech improvement after the iLase laser treatment.
  • Relieve the pain of cold sores and fever blisters: the iLase laser treatment provides immediate relief from painful cold sores and fever blisters after a single treatment.
