We use diode lasers in our practice for several procedures. Our doctors use a diode laser to do minor gum tissue remodeling and also to remove fibrotic tissue(Fibroma) inside the lip that gets in the way when biting. We also use them for healing apthous ulcers inside of the mouth. The diode lasers are especially great because they remove tissue atraumatically and don’t cause any bleeding. Our hygienists also use diode lasers on a very low setting that does not remove tissue. They use them inside the gum pockets to kill bacteria and help promote healing.
We also use a Diagnodent device that helps detect decay around fillings and crowns so that we can catch decay at the earliest stage possible.
Our goal is to be minimally invasive and laser dentistry is a great way to accomplish that.
