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.
