Electrosurgery

What is electrosurgery?

A new procedure called Bi-Polar Electrosurgery uses a radio surgery unit, and 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 arena. 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. Smith can contour the gum line in about an hour. When they are finished contouring the gum line, the result is complete. The gums appear finished after the procedure.

Dr. Baer has been my dentist for many years, since he began practicing at the old Tacoma Mall location. Though support staff has changed over the years, they have always been friendly and conscientious. All needed dental procedures have been well explained with alternatives given. Hygienists also well appreciated for care they take. State of the art with spirit of family dentistry.
