Dental lasers may be used for virtually every type of gum surgery. This first case is a kidney-transplant patient who takes a drug (cyclosporine) to prevent rejection of the kidney. Many other types of drugs also do this – including calcium-channel blockers, used to control high blood pressure, and dilantin, used to prevent seizures in epileptic patients. One side effect of this drugs is the overgrowth of the gum tissue that you see here. Rather than using a scalpel to cut away the gum tissue, the laser is used to gently vaporize the excess tissue.
