Electrosurgery

A new procedure called Bi-Polar Electrosurgery, which uses a radio surgery unit, is emerging as the next wave in gum contouring.  The technology is very popular with neurosurgeons and cardiologists, and has recently moved into the dental marketplace. With electrosurgery, the cutting is done with a very low current so that there is no bleeding, no pain, and no protective dressing required to cover the area.

And it takes no time at all - Dr. Denkovski can contour the gum line in about an hour. When the dentist is finished contouring the gum line, the result is final. The gums appear finished after the procedure.  “I don't have to worry about how the gums will heal, I don't have to go back and make final touches," explains Dr. Denkovski.
