A new procedure called MACAN 4 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. Thomas can contour the gum line in about an hour. When he is finished contouring the gum line, the result is complete. The gums appear finished after the procedure.
