Soft Tissue Diode Laser
The development of dental laser technology represents a significant advance in modern dentistry. Today, dental lasers are being increasingly used to treat tooth decay, periodontal disease, to perform biopsies or remove oral lesions, to cure restorative (filling) materials, as well to activate in-office teeth whitening systems. Laser systems known as, “all tissue lasers,” can perform clinical procedures on both hard and soft tissues.
Soft tissue Laser’s energy precisely cuts through soft tissue. It operates without heat, vibration, or pressure thereby minimizing the discomfort of the procedure. In addition, dental lasers can reduce anxiety for patients fearful of dental work and minimize post-operative bleeding and swelling.
While dental lasers may be an excellent treatment option in some situations, they cannot be used for every dental procedure.
