Soft Tissue Lasers In Dentistry
How can Soft Tissue Lasers be used in Dentistry?
What is a Soft Tissue Laser?
A soft tissue laser produces a highly focused laser light that can be used to manipulate soft tissues in the mouth. This soft tissue laser can make very small incisions when the beam is focused on the tissue. It can also be used for the cauterization of small blood vessels and lymphatics, therefore decreasing post-operative swelling and pain.
We use a diode laser for several restorative and cosmetic purposes at Dr Gary Kijanka. Some advantages for the patient include no bleeding, no pain, and quicker healing. Today, lasers are approved for safety by the Food and Drug Administration, and they have become much more prevalent and standard in dental offices across the country. Lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. This energy can be used to achieve accuracy and precision when shaping the gums, removing sores or excess gum tissue , and killing bacteria around the gums or during a root canal.
Frequently Asked Questions
Could I benefit from laser dentistry?
Possibly. Laser dentistry is generally not used in examinations and cleanings. A dental laser is often used by Dr. Jimmy Lutz to provide a better overall experience and recovery during routine dental procedures. Sometimes, the laser will be used to aid in a restorative procedure and other times for elective dental treatment. One example of an elective procedure where the dental laser is used is a cosmetic gingivectomy.
