- Orthodontic Lip Sore Laser Treatment
Orthodontic fibromas are a familiar issue for many patients who wear traditional metal braces. Tissue sores form in different areas of the mouth that can become painful. This young female patient had a small but bothersome fibroma on her lower lip. See how minimally invasive laser surgery removes the unwanted tissue with little patient awareness.
- Stop Gummy Smiles: WaterPik A Flossing Alternative
One of the most common causes of gum tissue becoming puffy or actually growing over the teeth while wearing braces is the accumulation of bacteria. Braces can make it difficult if not impossible for some patients to keep everything squeaky clean underneath all that hardware. It is not surprising that some patients will not floss as often as they should. Waterpik irrigation can eliminate the need to floss and keep everything free of bacteria build up. Prevent excess tissue growth the easy way.

Learn the details of cause, effect and treatment options to better control or get rid of white spots. Video footage created by GCAmerica.
