Our office utilizes the Gemini dual wavelength soft tissue laser. You may be wondering how does a laser work? All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light, it can be used as a cutting instrument or as a light to cure materials and aid in tooth whitening.
How do we use lasers in the practice?
- Reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores
- Reduce bacteria levels
- Remove overgrown tissues caused by some medications
- Remove inflamed tissues
- Speed up tooth whitening procedures
Laser procedures are very accurate. By using the laser we are able to reduce post surgical symptoms and healing times. Bleeding is very minimal with a laser . One of the ways we use the laser is in conjunction with periodontal procedures to reduce the bacteria remaining in the cleaned pocket, giving our patients better outcomes and healing.
