Diode lasers are a useful dental tool for a number of soft tissue procedures. They can be used to reshape the gums to create symmetry in the smile and cut back on the excess gum tissue. This exposes more of the healthy tooth for an attractive smile.
Diode lasers may also be used in other periodontic procedures and the treatment of the following:
- Benign soft-tissue growths
- Tooth decay
Diode lasers have also been shown to eliminate pockets of infected tissue in the gums. This can be an enormous benefit in halting the progress of gum disease as well as preventing it.
Diode lasers are also highly effective in numerous endodontic treatments. They aid in uncovering dental implants, retracting tissue for impression-taking, and pulpotomies. Diode lasers can also be used to reduce tooth sensitivity.
Diode lasers have proven to be extremely safe and valuable tools in dental surgery for the removal of soft tissue. They provide accurate and bloodless incisions, reduce pain during and after the procedure, reduce surgical risks such as infection, and offer patients a faster recovery than traditional methods.
