How does electrosurgery help in orthodontics?

First, with its bleeding control which allows accurate gingivectomy for band placement, and second, for sculpting the gingiva which extrude after successful orthodontic treatment. See the illustrations attached for an example. Dealing with an occasional stain from an orthodontic band by using the electrosurgery unit to accelerate spot bleaching is also a useful adjunct to orthodontia, as well as addressing periodontal issues prior to orthodontic therapy.
