- Dr. Adatrow will inject a local anesthetic into your gums to numb the region.
- He uses the laser to remove fragments of gum tissue. This is referred to as soft tissue incision. The suction will be used during the entire procedure to remove any saliva.

- He then places a gentle, putty-like paste and bandages in the area to cover your gums as they recover.
